Review Tour + #Giveaway: Zendar: A Tale of Sand by K.T. Munson @Ktmunson @GoddessFish


Zendar: A Tale of Sand

by K. T. Munson

GENRE: Fantasy Romance


Zendar is a world of sand and strife.

Living in the great capital of Zendar, Sol, Nitya has always longed for something more than her family’s merchant lifestyle. She craves adventure—or at least hopes something remotely exciting could happen. When her best friend, Juni, secures them both positions in the palace’s kitchen, Nitya gets to experience a different world than she ever imagined—especially after a young soldier catches her eye.

Her world will never be the same.


He walked around the bench and bent to retrieve her drawings. “I thought you heard me approaching. It seems you were too focused on your art.” He began to look at them.

Wait!” she said, but it was too late.

His eyebrows arched at the drawing at the bottom of the pile, one she’d done of him. Should she simply run away? Perhaps if she placed some distance between them she could pretend this wasn’t happening.

Is this me?” he asked, holding it out.

She nodded before snatching the papers. Mortified, she held them to her chest. Instead of leaving or mocking her, he took a step closer, putting them at an intimate distance. He cocked his head to the side, and she felt her lips part slightly. He focused on her smile, and for a moment she thought he was going kiss her.

How do you choose what to draw?” His words entranced her like a charmer.

Pretty things,” she replied mindlessly.

He gave her a lopsided grin before reaching up to snatch the offending drawing from her hold. “I think I’ll keep this.” His eyes sparkled with mischief. “I thank you.”

My Review:

Zendar: A Tale of Sand is a short but filling introduction to K.T. Munson’s Zendar series and Nitya, a young girl in the world of Zendar. Everyone expects Nitya to find a nice guy to marry but Nitya wants more out of life. She wants to go on an adventure and explore the world.

Nitya is not like her sister who only wants to do what is expected of her and what every other girl in that time problem does. Nitya’s sister only thinks about finding a man to marry and take care of her but not Nitya.

Nitya is surprised and very happy when her best friend, Juni, gets them both jobs at the palace. Nitya is overjoyed and excited to be working at the palace. Nitya’s life as she knows it is about to change forever. Nitya meets the eyes of a new guard at the palace and is instantly drawn to him and he to her.

When tragedy strikes Nitya’s life and she is locked away in a cell not knowing who to trust her only option may lie with the new guard she just met but can she trust even him? Is Nitya’s life over or has it just begun?
