very short synopsis-I'll try to be generic and not give anything away!:
Sora is a noble of the second tier. She's discontent with her dull life and affectionless father, and so on the eve of her coming out she decides to run away. An assassin spoils her plans by murdering her father and inadvertently kidnapping her. Sora ends up in a dangerous situation with an assassin and two wolvens (magical beings thought to be extinct). Unfortunately for Sora, her disappearing at the same time as her father's murder puts her under suspicion.
There is a lot here that follows your typical fantasy storyline, but with new elements (creatures, the workings of magic, etc) Shreffler has sprinkled throughout the world she has created in these pages. The daughter of a nobleman resents the fact that her only merit lies in her ability to fetch a desirable marriage. This is the story of what happens when this young woman falls in with a band of miscreants, outlaws with their hearts in the right place. We see this character grow as she finds a new purpose for herself in life, or at least comes to see that she can indeed carve her own way through life and that the options are limitless. This unfolds against the backdrop of a fantasy world with all sorts of different fantastic creatures and magic-wielders and nefarious plots.
There is the potential for romance introduced in this book, but only the potential. I was disappointed to find that it does not actually go anywhere in this installment; apparently the relationship continues to develop over the next books in the series, but even reading reviews of the sequel shows that things might not actually move to the next level for these two characters there, either. I am a fan of slow burn romances, but you've gotta reward me with at least a little progress by the end of the book. Things only just start to warm up by the end of this one, and if things burn too slowly from here on in, I'm bound to lose interest.
I did mostly enjoy this book, and if the next in the series happened to become available to me I would definitely get around to reading it at some point, but I'm in no rush to buy it right away.
Ms. Shreffler had me hooked from the very beginning. This book was full of adventure, races thought long gone, friendships built, and a special surprise (not giving spoiler there). The world building and character development were excellent. The occasional hints as to Crash's past well put into the story. There are many questions still unanswered, and hopefully we get those in the next installment.
