Read in May, 2010

Interestingly enough this is probably the longest book of Pierce’s quartets and yet it does not cover that much time, less than a year. The fact that the story is so continuous is part of the reason I just read it in one sitting. Tortall’s newest lady knight makes her way north to the border and is given a post, but the message from the Chamber of Ordeals is a constant presence on her mind. The harshness of war cuts a terrifying image in this book, but I am also moved every time by the strength of the characters created in particular the young people Kel takes under her wing. As much as I love Pierce’s romance I enjoy the stark contrast of this one.

(This is the fourth book of the Protector of the Small quartet, a Tortall series.)
