So I truly could NOT have been happier or more excited when she announced that she was publishing "Amnar: The Execution",a book from the trilogy that preceded the "Inheritor" series, because in addition to being new material for us to read, it is written from a completely different segment of that society/world, and fills in a lot of background details (delighting book nerds like me who, very late at night, can be found knee-deep in creating our own flowcharts and/or Excel spreadsheets, gathering, sorting, and analyzing every shred of information in order to ensure that no single stone of details has been left unturned. Or...have I shared too much?).
"The Inheritor" gave us an in-depth look at life primarily lived in The Lower City,(not the province of the monied and the politcally unambitious High City, nor the South City, home of the sickly, the poverty-stricken, and the people considered by Tiome's regime to be the Undesireables;Disposable, really.
But "The Execution" takes place among the hierarchy, groups, and individual leaders who protect and govern the Amnari. At the top of the structure is Isha, the Empress. Then under her are 10 men and women called Capillites who are each responsible for some area of Amnari life. Their stated responsibility is to provide the civilian governments with spiritual direction, should they want or need it.
And then under them are 20 men and women called The Servants, who are assigned 2 to one Capillite. Each pair usually consists of one "Watcher" who is a healer, and a "Warrior". Although their duties do tend to overlap, so cross-training is encouraged.
The Servants stated duty is to do anything and everything within their power in order to protect and serve and care for the people of their city. However, lately the Capillites and The Servants have increasingly found themselves on opposite sides when it comes to the definition of "protecting and serving."
So, you have that conflict.
And you have the growing unrest, hunger, deprivation, and poverty of The South City constantly increasing the hatred between The Have's and The Have-Not's in the other two cities.
Oh, right-and then there is that character whose supposed to be executed.
So go, RIGHT THIS MINUTE and purchase this book, and then remember to carve out a chunk of time where you are free of obligations and having to interact with other people. Because you really can't put this down. So don't say I didn't warn you.
