Ilana of the desert tribes has always been a fighter. The desert people have long been regarded as masters of hand to hand combat, and she is no exception. Sent into the wild during her rite to become a full member of the tribe, she meets Lord Vandil. He is cynical, arrogant, and everything a war hero is expected to be. But he makes Ilana an offer she can't refuse - -Train at the palace in the capital city and she could become a full knight of the realm. Once there, Ilana struggles to rid the palace of its prejudices about both females and desert warriors, not to mention the grueling training regimen and a fellow female who longs to knock her teeth in. Oh, and the war looming on the horizon might be a problem too, especially since Ilana hates magic.

Nice to know how the names are actually pronounced here, else it will be embarrassing to learn that the way I used to pronounce the name was wrong all along....

But it would be more awesome if its a boy, the main character.

The characters names and how you put them into words, really interests me. The pronunciation is also very unique. I realized I had been saying Ilana's name wrong

Most of these names are how I imagined them or very close to it, with the exception of Ilana. I always thought that it was ih-lah-na 
                              Thanks for the clarification! Keep up the amazing work!
