New from Orbit: Karen Miller's Empress.

About the book, from the author's website:

I am Hekat, precious and beautiful. I am the god’s slave, I live for its purpose. The god is in me, I am in the god’s eye.

In a family torn apart by poverty and violence, Hekat is no more than an unwanted mouth to feed, worth only a few coins from a passing slave trader.

But Hekat was not born to be a slave. For her, a different path has been chosen.

It is a path that will take her from stinking back alleys to the house of her God, from blood-drenched battlefields to the glittering palaces of Mijak.

This is the story of Hekat, precious and beautiful.
