Recommended for: shannon, kim, aimee, misty
Read in August, 2008

This book was long, and in parts tedious, and when I started it I was doubtful that I could relate to the primary character a dwarf with a chip on her shoulder. While her thirst for revenge was understandable, it was also difficult to read. Much of the novel was difficult due to the subject and the times. We expect heroism and compassion from the lead characters often, as we expect the same in life from those we know.Great writing, excellent character development, didn't give it more stars due to the harshness of the story.
