Our Mission

An empire on the edge of history

For centuries, women used weapons to kill for food, men to kill in war. Now Lena must break with tradition to save those she loves, but as she steps from her settled world into one of battle, intrigue and politics, her lover chooses banishment.

Lonely and afraid, each decision Lena makes brings more terrible consequences, until even her own people turn against her. Her partner in exile, the enigmatic diplomat Cillian, has no survival skills. Lena’s quick wit and prowess with knife and bow keeps them alive as they search for a lost Empire of immense and ancient power.

But how much will Lena sacrifice for a hopeless cause before the price is just too great?

Neither magical fantasy nor historical fiction, but a unique world both familiar and unfamiliar - an empire on the edge of history.

Reviews

There were times when I almost hated it when the pace picked up. Times when I wanted the story to stay quiet and slow, just to learn and live, to watch the characters learn and live, for life to continue as it was. I’m not saying this was a good thing or a bad thing. In many ways, it was a sign of the fact the books did give that, which I really like. I really enjoy those moments where it’s just life, with the quarrels and friction of different people from different (or not-so-different) backgrounds in daily life, working or learning. And, in a lot of ways, the story was evocative of life, and the feeling of life in such moments, and when they are disturbed.

Finally, I can’t emphasize enough that Thorpe knows how to continuously raise the stakes of conflicts, both internal and external, as she constantly expands and contracts the plot throughout the story. And every conflict pays off, in curious, intriguing, thoughtfully thematic ways.

I highly recommend Empire’s Daughter. Any reader will find something to enjoy in this novel.

With a seemingly simple starting point, Thorpe is able to create a complex, nuanced beginning to a series that relies on few tropes, yet teems with familiarity of the human experience.

...I found this a refreshing novel, where every twist and turn was unexpected. It’s definitely not your ‘typical’ fantasy or historical fiction book, which I count in it’s favor.

This book…! Now this book is just something special…

This book gives a reader so much more than just one idea, one plot, one theme around strong women. This book will have you witness an Empire’s current, past and future affairs with its history literally changing before your eyes. It was absolutely fantastic!

The Book Review Directory

This is easily one of the most intriguing books I’ve read all year.

...the story focuses on what would happen in a small fishing village where very old traditions are suddenly overturned by the threat of invasion and what real people would do in response to such a crisis.

Lena is forced to consider the nature of government, ethics, warfare, violence, sexuality, intimacy, and betrayal, and each weighty concept is given it’s proper due.
