A slave and a warrior come together in their quest for freedom.
Barnes & Noble.com
The Faerie King has entered into a pact with the demon lord, trading his people's freedom for the might to conquer the nine realms. Two unlikely allies are determined to stop him: Asherah, enslaved by demons, and Caol'nir, a warrior sworn to defend the king.
When Asherah, stripped of both her memory and her dignity, learns that King Sahlgren is responsible for her captivity, she leads her fellow slaves in a daring escape and burns their prison to the ground. Then she learns that there are many more prisons across Parthalan, and embarks upon a campaign to free every last faerie.
In stark contrast to Asherah's struggles, Caol'nir lives the comfortable life of a temple guard. He is sworn to serve and defend the king, as his ancestors have done since time immemorial. Now a priestess has been murdered, and Caol'nir learns that Sahlgren's scheming is to blame. Determined to thwart the king, sacred oath or no, Caol'nir joins Asherah's rebellion. What Caol'nir doesn't know is that Sahlgren has promised the demon lord a woman of rare and singular beauty, a woman who is rumored to be the sun god's daughter. She also happens to be Caol'nir's mate.

I really enjoyed Heir to the Sun. The cover does it no justice at all.
There are several main characters we have, Caol'nir a warrior, who is in love with a priestess he is sworn to protect and not touch. There is also Asherah, a fae enslaved by demons.
Asherah is an amazing character, so amazingly strong that any woman would be proud to be her, she has amazingly hard times but she is a fighter.
I don't want to say too much in fear that I will spoil something but oh my god!!
There was more than once that I gasped out loud because something unexpected happened, so many times where I thought I was going to hate the author for doing something to a character I liked...but she pulled through (all is forgiven Jenn).
In my opinion Heir to the Sun is beautifully written, there are so many great lines that I wish I had copied down, lines that make your heart melt and you can't help but wish you had written them...or even better have said to you by a special someone.
Caol'nir and Asherah have very separate stories until later in the book when all paths meet after some amazing twists and turns.
This is a book full of love and hate, hope and hurt and fighting for good and fighting for revenge.
I'm really sorry this is so short but it is so difficult to sum this up without giving away something important.
If you have read the Divine series by P.C.Cast I think its quite similar, the world is similar and they are both really good.
