Mickey Zucker Reichert & Jennifer Wingert
At the moment of Kiandra’s birth, her father kills a fox cub. Little does he know that he is going to pave the way for disaster, and inadvertently rescue his own people at the same time.
Despite liking the way this was written and connecting with the characters, I thought the storyline itself was uninspiring.
The ending that Bevin orchestrates – it’s just too simple. It doesn’t give me any idea of the state of the rest of things – are they going to accept the Priest of Light? Carry on with their own violent priesthood?
It wasn’t clear to me what role Kiandra actually played. She seemed to lead the invaders, but that was it. I expected more! Not to mention her children. What was even the point of including them in the text?
Class hangups are always difficult. I wonder whether if I was Indian, I would understand them better. It seems annoying to me that you can’t marry who you love. If they hadn’t had that problem, there wouldn’t have been any issues at all!
I didn’t understand why the spirit link with Tynan stayed intact. Bevin should have been shielding everyone, right? And then after that episode, things just went back to normal – the loss of a human child seemed to mean nothing.
Well, I read it. I was expecting more brilliance from an author that I like so much, but I didn’t get it. I probably won’t reread this one – the characters were ok, but the storyline just didn’t do it for me.
