Descrição do produto
In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be darkness—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death-bringer.
These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up learning in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.
Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

Asha (daughter of the King of Firgaard) is the Iskari, a legendary dragon slayer, feared by everyone who encounters her. The Legend of the Iskari is that she is a child of blood and moonlight, the bringer of death and destruction. She is due to marry Jarek, but her father offers her another option: bring him the head of the first dragon and he will release her from her promise. This leads Asha on a journey of discovery as she endeavours to fulfil her father’s wish and free herself from her fate.
So why didn’t I love it? I found it a slow story. It wasn’t as fast paced as I expected from the blurb and there are times when a lot of storytelling is devoted to not a lot happening. I didn’t like Asha. I found her moody, elitist and often unlikable. I found that her moods and position changed so much that it made me uncomfortable.I didn’t find the romance between Asha and Torwin believable at first. I couldn’t see why he was so attracted to her (early Asha is vile to him).
That out of the way, The Last Namsara, had some excellent features.
The stories of the Dragons and the old magic were brilliantly written. I adored Kozu as a character and I wanted to see more of him and his interactions with Asha. The addition of storytelling as a powerful, old magic was wonderful; the stories were beautiful in their concept and the way they were written. The legend of the Namsara and the Iskari was a highlight of the novel for me.
Part of the ending I guessed at but part was a complete surprise and left the story in an excellent place for the second book, which I will read because I do want to know how this story continues, I just hope the pacing of the second book is a little more exciting.
I haven't fallen so hard for a book in a long time. Everything about it was perfection from start to finish and I devoured it so quickly that I am now suffering the biggest book hangover. The world was so well thought out, and the characters...Asha has stolen a fierce place in my heart, and I will forever be in love with Torwin's freckles.
I raged. I laughed. I cried (thanks for THAT SCENE, Kristen). If this book makes you do anything, it makes you feel. Asha's journey is one I was so pleased to get to witness.
I'm gonna keep this spoiler free, but I'll say with ease that The Last Namsara is definitely one of my favourite reads of this year...and of all time. I can't wait to read more of Kristen's work, because she is, at heart, a true storyteller <3
There are so many twists and turns as the story unfolds, it had me guessing right until the end.
