It loses a star because I was a bit uncomfortable with how young Tamora starts up romance stuff with Kell. As in, people seeming to be attracted to her. I guess in older times it was common, but it bothered me a bit anyway.

Also, why is this the first time in this universe that we heard of noble dudes raping servant women all the time? Why would noble dudes need to rape servant women when apparently there are all sorts of willing servant women who'd do it for a bit of extra money? Bleh.

But I love Kell's character and her strength and her determination. So there. Four stars.

50.0% "The blurb here on Goodreads says: "...when she leads a team of pages in defensive maneuvers against renegade bandits--coincidentally on the same day that she gets her first period!" Uh, WHAT? NO. This is WEEKS after she gets her period. It's on the same day she TURNS TWELVE. Is this the actual blurb on the book? It has an awful lot of spoilers for late in the book as well as inaccuracies..."
