Like A Song of Ice and Fire, this is a world in which no character is safe, and no plot twist is out of bounds. Now, with the amount I read, and the amount I've studied plot structure, it's hard to slip a twist past me. I usually see them coming a mile away. Souldrifter, however, hit me with a couple of surprises that completely blind-sided me. Better still, it earned them. These were no cheap tricks or out-of-nowhere events. They were perfectly foreshadowed, a fact I only appreciated after the twist was pulled off, because the author drew my attention away from it with the deftness of a stage magician.
In short, this is a great follow-up to Dreamwielder. The vibrant, deep characters you loved are there, the plot still sparkles, and there are a few surprises sprinkled in to delight and shock you.
The reading is fast-paced and full of intrigue, with the same harsh world depicted through vivid and fluid prose as Dreamwielder. A great follow-up for this YA fantasy series!
I like that most of the powerful magicians are women, and each have their own special abilities, and I also particularly enjoyed the careful mix of magic with politics -- it could come off as unbalanced, or one part more boring than the other, but I found it all intriguing and the plot very fast moving.
One of the best quotes that ties this book to the first in the series is this: "Children can win a war, but it takes men to rule a realm." The first book was all about the war, and now this one is all about ruling (which involves some war as well).
Lastly, not to give anything away, but it has a great ending that exceeded all my expectations. Anyone who is a fan of YA fantasy or of Game of Thrones should love this series. If you like powerful women, magic, and trickery, this book is for you.
