Kingdoms will rise and fall for her...
"Cat" Catalia Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods—and her homicidal mother—have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever.
But not if she can help it
Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm—until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.
I couldn't put this one down. Takes place in a fantasy world with magic and mythological Gods and creatures. Cat is kidnapped and not is happy about it. The story is from her first person point of view. She is pretty funny. The world building is very well done. You feel like you are there but it does not take away from the story. The characters are great. Cat is mysterious with lots of secrets. Cat and Griffin sizzle. The book was not long enough. I need the next book right now. I loved this one. I had no idea what to expect from this one but I highly recommend it.
