The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms… is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope…

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.
Yes! Another Asian-inspired YA novel. I am quite happy.

Someone commented that it sounds similar to Graceling but in my own opinion, I don't see it. Besides, some books do have somewhat similar plots... and quite similar characters.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to read books. It's not like its everyday I happen to chance upon an Asian-inspired YA novel.
