This first book in Karen Miller’s Godspeaker trilogy introduces Hekat, an unwanted girl destined for greatness.

In a family torn apart by poverty and violence, Hekat is no more than an unwanted mouth to feed, worth only a few coins from a passing slave trader.

But Hekat was not born to be a slave. For her, a different path has been chosen. It is a path that will take her from stinking back alleys to the house of her God, from blood-drenched battlefields to the glittering palaces of Mijak.

This is the story of Hekat, slave to no man.

    " The ending ruined the book for me. The entire book seemed to be meticulously planned but the ending!!! It was rushed - shocking and very disappointing - it left me unfulfilled the only reason why I am going to read the other books is because the rest of the book was great. Just the ending - tis a pity I finished the book - I would rather have left it unfinished - except I have principles about finishing books - sigh - "

    " I finally finished Empress, and boy was it a draining experience. I salut the author in begining the trilogy with a character so unlikable that it took will power to stay with her. Hekat is beautiful, charismatic, devious, courageous, ambitions, single-minded, small minded, obsessive and utterly psychopathic. She's also quite mean. But I will say she is a well drawn character, along with everyone in the book - so well drawn and so consistent that the ending, sadly enough, should not be a surprise. Karen Miller took the quintessential rags-to-riches story and turned it upsidedown - creating a protagonist that so clearly did not deserve the power she (so elegantly) wrested from the warlord. I think thats cool. I'm looking forward to picking up the next book in the series. "

    " An interesting fantasy novel because the main character is deliberately unlikeable - while you sympathise with where she has come from, she becomes a very nasty character indeed. I found the world interesting, the descriptions were comprehensive and I really inhabited the world for the duration of the book. An impressive fantasy novel. "

    " I loved the worldbuilding done here. Miller really created a unique setting, and it was a nice change of pace from standard fantasy realms. Having said that, the narrtive got a little repetitive, especially when involving the main character Hekat. Her emotions were almost too transaparent and predictable without any opportunity for the reader to actually relate to her. The plot also seemed to wander a bit without even really pointing to an ultimate goal. Nonetheless, an entertaining read. "
