Magic and murder engulf the realm of Kelewan. Fierce warlords ignite a bitter blood feud to enslave the empire of Tsuranuanni. While in the opulent Imperial courts, assassins and spy-master plot cunning and devious intrigues against the rightful heir. Now Mara, a young, untested Ruling lady, is called upon to lead her people in a heroic struggle for survival. But first she must rally an army of rebel warriors, form a pact with the alien cho-ja, and marry the son of a hated enemy. Only then can Mara face her most dangerous foe of all--in his own impregnable stronghold. An epic tale of adventure and intrigue.
First of a trilogy, the others: Servant of the Empire and Mistress of the Empire.

This is a tense political intrigue novel set in a fantasy world full of elegant and regal customs and the required levels of cliched deeply devoted honour.

Not a particularly fast paced book, or necessarily on the top of my reading list. But once started it defied any attempt at putting it down.
The Rift War seen from the other side of the Rift. I recently picked up the whole series. its on my to rad list.
