It probably isn't fair to do a one-to-one comparison, but without naming any names (ahem) there was a trilogy that concluded last year where an impoverished teenage girl's main goal was to save her little sister, and as she tried to accomplish that she became the symbol of a rebellion against an oppressive government. I bring this up because some of the pitfalls of that particular book are also elements in play in Darkfall, but here they turn out solidly. The stakes of the war are equally deadly here -- terrible things happen, battles are lost, and people die. Some of it is even Nya's fault. But even when bad things are happening, Nya never checks out; and even when she's being used as a figurehead, she never loses her agency. She's the one who decides to play along with questionable leaders, even when things don't feel right, and then she has to deal with the consequences.
In my review of Blue Fire (the middle book in the series), I mentioned that I had a hard time tracking what happened at the climaxes in the first two books. That was actually not the case in this one -- there was a heck of a lot of action happening near the end, but I never lost track of what was going on with Nya's powers and the Duke's weapons.Read more ›
