Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] story about power. Although this one's about loss, friendship, and responsibility. Two young women, one magically bound to protect and obey the other, are the last survivors of the ruling class of a kingdom defended up to now by magic. Captives of an invader, they alone must keep the magic of the gems out of enemy hands. It's a novella about love and duty, at its heart: elegant and affecting."  ~ Liz Bourke, Sleeps with Monsters

"You are a tourist in a seemingly plain valley which has a deceivingly rich story behind it.... A pleasure to read. In fact, I have read it multiple times." ~ Geek Ireland
