Overview

For five hundred years, the great southern empire of Hastinapura has flourished, ruling the world of Isavalta with an iron fist. But nothing lasts forever . . .
The day of her womanhood ceremony finds Princess Natharie of Sindhu happily celebrating with her family, joyfully awaiting her marriage to a prince of another realm. However, when the empire demands that her family send someone to court, Natharie realizes that she is the only one who can satisfy the empror's wishes.
As Natharie spends time in the Hastinapura court, she learns of the empire's bloodthirsty worship of the Mothers and of the intention of their high priest, Divakesh, to spread their worship beyond the empire - including into neighboring Sindhu - at any cost.
These plots threaten to pit Natharie's homeland against Hastinapura in a disastrous war. Appalled by the power and brazenness of the emperor's brother, Pirnce Samudra, she realizes as each day brings war ever nearer, that the powerful prince may be her only hope to prevent a war that could destroy them all.

I have read and immensely enjoyed the first three Isavalta books. This latest installment in the series pretty much stands on it's own. Except for the location (which they all share) and some of the basic character skills, it has very little in common with the first three. Because of that fact, I'm sorry to say I did not enjoy this one as much. Don't get my wrong I love Sarah Zettel's imagination and skills as a writer! I just missed the old characters and story lines I had so fallen in love with. That being said, I would still recommend Sword of the Deceiver as an enjoyable fantasy read and the author's work definitely worth checking out!
