Kestra Dallisor has been exiled from Highwyn for 3 years, but she is called back by her father, who serves Endrick the powerful and cruel leader of Antora, who also has very powerful magic. On her way back, she gets captured by the Coracks, a rebellion that wants to destroy Endrick. They want her to get the Olden Blade for them, the only weapon that can destroy Lord Endrick. They take Kestra’s servants and threaten to kill them if she doesn’t obey. The Coracks give her 2 Coracks as servants in exchange, Simon and Trina. The Coracks want the blade so that they can choose an Infidante that will claim the blade and kill Lord Endrick. The Infidante will be Halderian and also will choose the new ruler of Antora. Will Kestra get the Olden Blade for the Coracks? Or will she refuse to give it to them? Find out by reading The Traitor’s Game!!
I liked this book because it was full of adventure and mystery. But at some parts I didn’t really want to keep reading because it was boring. If you don’t really like deaths I suggest you don’t read this book because there were a lot of deaths in it. But at some parts it was really interesting and I wanted to keep reading. I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
