Fantasy Series Book Review by Mulluane
This book introduces us to another land, and another unique caste system. Again I enjoyed the worldbuilding. The country to which Rani and Mair are transported is a cruel land where the ruler, to punish a portion of the population for uprising against his rule, enslaves children and forces them to become soldiers. There are some poignant moments, a budding romance and some serious coming of age issues as the new king struggles with his decision to rescue or avenge the kidnapping of his subjects. Meanwhile Rani just tries to survive.
The story abounds with elements of loyalty and betrayal, life and death, hope and despair and of course, winning against all odds. This book can stand on its own but I look forward to seeing what else the author throws at Rani and how she overcomes any new obstacles in her quest to restore the glasswrights' guild.
