Tamora Pierce meets George R. R. Martin in this smart, political, medieval fantasy-thriller.

There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.
“A wild, energetic  novel that proves girls CAN be warriors while still being true to themselves.”
      —Sarah Dessen, author of The Moon and More

Wasn't that blurb amazing?! That was more than enough to convince me. However, people do say that actions speak better than words. So without further ado, I present to you the official book trailer for The Cadet of Tildor:

Am I the only one who thinks that it is a legit trailer for a movie? Nope? 
I'm not an expert on cinematography or anything, but I have to say that this trailer was very well made! I absolutely loved the cast. If you did too, you can get to know them more by heading over to this page. Don't leave yet, though! Keep on reading, because Alex Lidell has a surprise for YOU! ;)
