This is the story of Alexa and her brother Mical. They watch as their parents are murdered before their eyes by the invading Blevon army led by a black sorcerer. In order to hide her identity and avoid the Breeding house, Alexa poses as a boy and joins the army. Years later, she becomes the head of Crown Prince Damian's personal guard.
Things are not as they seem in this book. Those that we think of as enemies are not necessarily so. It's a book about friendship and being who you are. Most of all, it's a quick enjoyable read.
This is a wonderful fantasy YA novel with a very creative plot line. I give this one 4 out of 5 stars.
