“Your Highness,” she said. “I’ve already explained that no matter how much you might give me, it’s no good to me if I’m dead. Forgive my rudeness, but I must speak plainly. You have dealt me an unfair and cowardly blow.”
The queen went pale and began to tremble violently. “What do you mean?”
“I saved the prince’s life, yet you reward me by taking my life. What would you call that but unfair and cowardly?”
On the prosperous, island kin ...more

It's a book that I can feel entirely enthusiastic about recommending to children who look for fast-paced and action packed stories with magic.
It's a book that features unusual characters: the protagonist is a 30-year-old warrior woman who wields a spear with great skills and who has a rich back story and an intriguing future story to look forward to.
It does not alter its sensibil ...more
Its very refreshing to read new genre after overloaded with western supernatural, fantasy or scifi novel, first i love how the author setting the main character a tough lady who can fighting well but still look soft and care toward everyone, but she is not perfect either and that made her more human and relateable to reader.
First read the prolog, even this book setting is a fantasy world you will know that this ...more

On one hand, the characters were really good. There weren't any I disliked, and I really liked Torogai and Balsa.
On the other hand, the story felt extremely rushed and maybe that's why I didn't have a chance to dislike anyone in it.
Part of this is because this is ultimately a middle-grade book. The storytelling is short and concise, but perhaps a bit too much so for an older reader. There were parts I wish more time was spent on. On the bright side, I never felt that t ...more

This is a very basic storyline filled with very basic characters. That does not mean it is bad; but it means that it is not entirely surprising or engrossing. Those who enjoy fantas ...more
Set in a world created by the author, this is a fascinating story of a strong and determined female and her weak, but improving, young charge.
This is the first installment of this series and at the end; you are ready for the next one. I loved how the illustrations in the beginning of each part foreshadowed how that part would end. That is a great stopping point for students to try to predict what will happen.
Older students would be better apt to understand the mythi ...more
Still, I like the premise and without the book, the anime would not have been made. And I have a guess that some of the richer development in the anime came from later volumes in the novel series. St ...more
