it was amazing

I have really enjoyed the alternate world of North America in this trilogy. It is also a powerful coming of age story as 16 year old Isobel has been traveling the Territory as the Devil's Hand, learning the power contained in the elements and the growing threats along its borders from the Spanish to the south and United States to the east. She has been guided by Gabe, but this book challenges his loyalties as the pull of the Mud River, aka Mississippi, grows strong.

Lots of threads are tied together to reveal the real issues that need resolving and Isobel is forcdd to grow quickly here.

Laura Anne Gilman does a fine job with charactet, scene setting and dialogue, but I am disappointed at how the book ended. She has said this was the end for now and if that is the case, this is far from satisfying. I appreciate the good craft left me wanting more but there needed to be more resolved here.
