Zendar: A Tale of Sand


Zendar: A Tale of Sand

by K. T. Munson

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.


Her.” The guard pointed in her direction. “She was there.”

Nitya froze, unsure what she was being accused of. Today was supposed to be her last day. She’d gotten to see more of the palace and was quite content to return home. What was happening?

Me?” Nitya heard herself say dumbly.

Sergeant Ramas seemed equally as surprised. “Are you sure?” he asked the guard.

I’m sure. She and a man served the food,” the guard answered. Nitya’s mouth went dry as she wrapped her hand around Juni’s.

The Sergeant cleared his throat. “And the man?”

Not here,” the guard answered.

Sergeant Ramas pointed at her. “Take her,” he ordered.

Nitya stepped back. “I didn’t do anything!” The tears were instant, and she tried to pull away. The guards were quick to get ahold of her. It all felt dreadfully real and horribly surreal at the same time. It was as though it was happening to someone else.

My Review:

Zendar: A Tale Of Sand is a super quick read and the prequel to the Zendar series. The story is of a servant that falls in love with a palace guard.

I enjoyed getting to know the characters and I am looking forward to getting to know them even more in the series.

  1. Nitya is an interesting character! I would love to read her story!

  2. Thank you for hosting and for the review.

    Welcome all guests, I'm happy to answer any questions about the short story prequel or the series as a whole!

  3. This has a lovely cover, perfect for the story line.

  4. Interesting blurb. The cover seems to go well with it. Thanks for the chance.

  5. Sounds like a very interesting world. I like the cover too.

  6. I always find it interesting when an author finds that a prequel is needed to introduce a story line, character, or whatever. It just shows that no matter how complete something is supposed to be, there is often a reason to do a little introduction to make it even more complete.
