it was ok
bookshelves: ya, fantasy

Sequel to The Safe-Keeper's Secret and The Truth-Teller's Tale. Intriguing premise that doesn't really go anywhere (Kellen has been raised as a boy because her mother firmly believes she gave birth to a son, not a daughter; consequently, Kellen's gender identity is very fluid). Kellen and Gryffin are likeable characters, and their positions as outcasts makes them well worth rooting for, but the prose tends to take itself too seriously, and there's isn't really a plot so much as a sequence of events. Also, while Kellen's and Gryffin's relationship is strong, the romantic aspect isn't developed enough to be particularly satisfying. Still, the world is fun to explore, and the concepts of "Dream-Maker," "Secret-Keeper," and "Truth-Teller" are interesting.
