Ishtar’s Legacy Series

Ishtar's Blade by [Blackwood, Lisa]

Ishtar’s Blade (Book 1)

King’s confidant.
Avenging blade of the Goddess Ishtar.

Iltani asked to be none of these things. Yet fate does not ask permission when she weaves souls upon destiny’s loom.

On the day of Iltani’s birth, an assassin tried and nearly succeeded in ending the line of the gryphon kings. Out of that bloodshed, an unbreakable bond was forged between child-king and goddess-chosen infant, and from that pivotal moment forward, Iltani was never farther from King Ditanu than his shadow. Not until her training to become Ishtar’s Blade required her to leave.

After four brutal years of training, Iltani now returns to court as Ishtar’s Blade and takes up her role of king’s shadow—a dangerous position in a court where the threat of another assassination is but a blade’s width away. But for the chance to stand at the side of her beloved king, she will endure the dangers of court intrigues, assassins, and political maneuverings.

  1. Oh my, I just finished this book in 2 days and I have a full time job and 2 kids. It was that good! I have never felt the need to leave feedback or comments in my life but I just wanted to say you are a great writer and thank you for what you do. Reading has been my great escape since childhood and this was so well written I felt like I could smell the glade. Ok enough butt kissing, when is the next book coming, I’m dying to know what happens. Hahahahaha!!!!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it. I’m working on the second book and another series at the same time (bad me), but I want to make book two better, so am taking longer with the writing and editing. I’m aiming for Jan 2013.

  3. Thank god because I read the book twice because I fell in love and have been looking for the second book! I can’t wait and dying to know whats next!!!

  4. Just finished Stone’s Kiss. I also read the Avatars short story as well. I couldn’t put it down, very well written. I loved it. I can’t wait for the next book. How many books total are you thinking about for this series?

  5. Wow. Sorry. This reply is coming almost 2 years late. (I really need to do a better job of staying on top of my blog.) But to answer some of the questions on this list. I’ve planned 4 books (but it might end up 5) with Gregory and Lillian. And then a spin-off series. Stone’s Divide (book 3) is now available for pre-order.

    To answer another question about Nook and the other retailers, I’ve gone exclusive with Amazon for the time being, So, unfortunately, they will only be available there. It’s next to impossible to get traction at the other sites unless you have a huge backlist of titles. With that in mind, I’ll probably wait to go wide again until after I’ve finished the series. But keep an eye out because once I have book three formatted for print, I will do some paperback giveaways over on Goodreads for the entire series.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend, and thanks for reading my books!

    bye for now,

    Lisa Blackwood
