Overview

A weapon of power...
A paladin's soul...
And a girl trying to save her mother... at any cost.

In the city of Tsing, life and death balance between the edge of a knife and a courtier's traitorous tongue. A paladin's soul lied bound to an emperor's flawed weapon, tormented to madness and murder.

Blood has stained the Imperial palace, and the Emperor lies in the grip of a magical weapon gone mad. His life, sanity, and the empire itself can only by saved if someone can reason with the mad paladin's soul.

Only one person has a chance, but Katie has been hardened by a life of cruel lessons. Having lost everything, she faces the guillotine for her crimes. But she is the key to the Emperor's life, and and empire's salvation.

If only she would believe it.

"A Soul for Tsing" is a tale of a tough young woman in a tough city. There are many twists and turns in this novel that lead this young woman to become a heroine for everyone to like. "A Soul for Tsing" will touch upon each and every one of your emotions at least once.

Everyone must read this book. It breaks the mold of classic fantasy and emerges the reader into a tale that he or she will not soon forget.

I was very pleased to find this book, and decided to give it a try given the interesting cover art. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was also a very nice read. The action is non-stop, the dialogue is intelligent and appropriate to the plot, the character development is strong, and the plot is interesting...go figure!

If you're a fan of quick-paced swords and sorcery and you like well described fight scenes (a la RA Salvatore), give this book a try. You won't be disappointed.

Meet the Author

CChris A. Jackson fell in love with the sea the first time he set eyes on those majestic rolling waves. As a youth, he spent summers working on his father's fishing boat in Oregon. Trained as a marine biologist, he became sidetracked by a career in biomedical research, but regained his heart and soul in 2009 when he and his wife Anne left the dock aboard a 45-foot sailboat to cruise the Caribbean and write full time. His acclaimed Scimitar Seas nautical fantasies won three consecutive Gold Medals in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards. In addition to his sea tales, his repertoire includes six more award-winning fantasy novels, as well as several short stories published in anthologies. Shooting from the sea to the stars, Chris now has a triad of science fiction/humor novellas available in both ebook and audiobook formats. His most recent release is Pirate's Honor, from Paizo Publishing.

This a great book. I really felt for the main character in her struggles and admired her for strength. The other characters are great also especially those among the city watch. The odd thing was that there was not really any Bad Guy in the book...a bunch of bad people but not one overarching Villain. Which I kind of liked. I highly recommend this book.
