Buen comienzo para la saga, creo que tiene lo que es indispensable para un primer tomo, te deja con ansias del segundo.
Los primeros capítulos me parecieron un poco lentos y desconcertantes, varias muertes inesperadas de personajes que parecían tener mucho más para dar. Pero hacia la mitad la revelación de la verdadera naturaleza de la protagonista pone todo lo demás en perspectiva (sólo era el marco de las líneas principales) y la trama se recupera.

This book & trilogy could have easily warranted only a 3 star rating, but Ygorla Morys is such a hot mess of a vilian it elevates the entire trilogy. I was reading on Louise Cooper's website where someone saw the cover art featuring her, and a friend wanted to know more about her. Cooper's comment was something like, you really don't, she's a bad girl. Not as good as the Time Master trilogy, but another fun story in the same world.

Mediocre continuación para la sobresaliente saga de El Señor del tiempo. Me enganchó tan poco que no me leí las continuaciones.

She hated school so much, in fact—spending most lessons clandestinely writing stories—that she persuaded her parents to let her abandon her education at the age of fifteen and has never regretted it.

She continued to write and her first full-length novel was published when she
