Birthright: Ascension, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Every god has an origin.
Kita's constantly on the run from her parents trying to build a life for herself. She's an undefeated sword duelist and risen to underboss in the Shadow Guild, but her family keeps dragging her back to her life as a duke's daughter—and no one will explain why.
What Kita doesn't know is her future was written before she was born.
When the commander of the Legion of Yorq arrives to recruit a member of the noble family, Kita's mother informs Kita of her destiny: A powerful role in Arcone, a place Kita's never heard of. This is the opportunity Kita longs for—it will take her far from home and give her protection from her father.
But nothing's free.
To claim her birthright, Kita must win the harrowing Proving Ritual but the deadly challenge may be more than Kita can handle. She would rather die than live with failure. But to win, she may be forced to reveal her darkest secret.

Kita is not the most likeable character but she is certainly one of the most complex. Despite her evil qualities, there are lines even she won't cross and she is incredibly loyal to those who stand by her. I would recommend all Kita books to anyone who enjoys plenty of action and sci-fi. They're reminiscent of some of the best anime series. You don't have to be LGBTQ+ to really enjoy these books (and while this book doesn't delve as much into Kita's relationships, the next books will).

The writing wasn't exactly bad. The storytelling was, however, rather poor - though much of this is because the story itself is not great. I know it's fantasy, but the best fantasy never feels this artificial. I could not suspend enough belief in order to get absorbed in the story. Which may be because the story was already made from soggy tissue.
She never had a chance to reconcile or for her mother to understand her.
The. Some crazy stuff happens shortly after the dinner. All the while everyone is calling her a demon and a monster. I don’t believe she was but we never really saw the softer side. She seemed to relish torture and killing, but the. Some random crazy enemies show up and she tries to save her parents.
She needed her mother to be a guide instead she has no guide and falls into becoming a killing machine that doesn’t love. Not really her fault but the circumstances became bizzare.
I hear the rest of the series is chalk full of of adventures and I am excited to read on.
It's a book about a sociopath mutant princess (actually, a duke's daughter) who gets turned into a super-powered angel when a rogue A.I. injects her with nanites. After fighting murderous mutant elves and velociraptors, she plans to use her new powers to take revenge on the rapist who murdered her family. Also she struggles emotionally with fears she might be a monster. And she has a cat.
