The Cadet of Tildor
by Alex Lidell
Release Date: January 10th, 2013

Tamora Pierce meets George R. R. Martin in this smart, political, medieval fantasy-thriller.

There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.

This feature will replace Like This, Try This and usually be posted on Fridays. Feel free to create a Book Mash of your own! Have you heard of The Cadet of Tildor? It's an underrated gem, and tops my favorite high fantasies.
