Summary of the Book:

The Goddess brought Sara to an alien world for a special ‘Task’, but how can a profoundly damaged programmer destroy a demon? Millennia ago, the Goddess’s universe was destroyed in a war between gods. Her children found refuge in havens offered by thirteen of her brothers and sisters. Now, the Goddess brings Nakairi – ‘foreigners’ – from one haven to another to fulfill Tasks only they can do. Tasks that the Goddess finds essential.
Sara is a crippled programmer, victim of horrific assault and broken by her experiences. Now, she walks in fear through the halls of an alien palace beset with intrigue. Her only defenders, the dragonlords, are predators who terrify her, but they’re better than the rest of the palace denizens. When events force the dragonlords to leave, she is left unprotected and she finds how very bad it can get.
Hurt to her very soul, she must find the strength to be the hero that being a Nakairu implies, for in her lowest hour, she finds her Task, and it is worse than she ever imagined.
Not all hope is lost though. Broken or not, if there’s anything Sara knows, it is how to endure. It must be enough. The Goddess chose her for this Task and no one else can do it.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I was a little unsure what I was getting into when I started to read this. The main character Sara had this inner strength that could get her through almost anything. She is a survivor and not she has been brought to a place unfamiliar to her. The reason she is there is to complete a task for a goddess. One that is said that only she can complete. She has the protection by the Dragonlords, but they leave and she is no longer under their protection. Sara has this light in her that is amazing. The world building is rich and full with this one. It was enjoyable to read.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
