Murder, mayhem and magic…
Locked in a coffin-like darkness, there is nothing to distract me from my memories of killing Reyad. He deserved to die—but according to the law, so do I. Here in Ixia, the punishment for murder is death. And now I wait for the hangman’s noose.
But the same law that condemns me may also save me. Ixia’s food taster—chosen to ensure that the Commander’s food is not poisoned—has died. And by law, the next prisoner who is scheduled to be executed—me—must be offered the position.

The writing is great while the author has a fluid yet surprising, narrative. Good read or listen.
I usually don't write reviews, but this book was really good! Try it. You'll like it.
I keep rereading this- it never gets old. For a person who normally doesn't read books like this, take my word on it!
