"Better to be quiet, just like in the house with Papa. I can handle a little pain."
"Disobedience will be punished harshly. Obedience will be rewarded well. Learn this and you will flourish in the Night Guild."
"The fire in her muscles drowned out the cold, wet squelching of the mud that stained her britches and caked her hands."
"The mind-numbing fog of exhaustion made it hard to think."
Seven and then Illanna as she was renamed after being chosen and purchased by Hawk House; she feels more comfortable, seems to be taken care of and the food is better. But what horrors await her and can she rise to the challenge?
This author pens original stories, with characters who will grow on you and whose pain you can not help but feel. The world the author builds is described in detail, his writing is creative and easy to read and I found the pacing of the story to be well done and just enough details to create an image in this readers mind.
I enjoyed the book and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
I was drawn in the moment I started reading and my attention was held right up to the last word!
I spent ten years with Ilanna, shared her hopes and fears, and her triumphs and failures. I felt the aches and pains, the cuts and broken bones, and sat with her friends as she healed. I watched her grow from a scared, lonely little girl, called Viola, through months of torture, as Seven, and years of training, as Ilanna the apprentice, into a strong and determined journeyman.
The details and descriptions of Praamis, and the believable characters, each with their own personalities and troubles, made this book come to life. I didn't just read a story... I lived it!
Andy Peloquin is an amazing writer and story-teller!
I loved the book and am eager to read the next book in the series.
