Honor's Paradox Book Description:

Jame is one of the last of the Kencyrath line, born to battle a world-destroying Lord of Darkness and resuscitate her ancestral heritage. Jame's youth was spent hard and low in a desert wasteland. Now she has discovered her past and her heritage as Highborn¾and, with it, the power to call souls out of their bodies and slay the occasional god or two (as well as to resurrect them). First, though, Jame must survive the politics and dangers of haunted Tentir College, a school for warriors where she's a student. At Tentir, Jame saves a young prot_g_ from possession by a powerful, evil soul in search of a body, while combating jealous students who see her as a danger to their ambition for power and want her expelled¾and blinded and dead, in the bargain! To make matters worse, she's challenged to a mounted combat duel to decide who is Tentir "top gun"¾a competition she must win to graduate. It's trial by fire, as Jame moves closer to a magnificent destiny she both fears¾and knows she must face. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).
