really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, split-narrative, ya

Skin Hunger is dark young adult fantasy, with the most bloodcurdling school for wizards imaginable. Two separate storylines are told in alternating chapters, one following Sadima, a farm girl who can hear the thoughts of animals, and the other following Hahp, a boy who has been sold to the wizard school. The stories never meet up, but slowly some connections between characters are vaguely established. This book ends on a cliffhanger, and immediately picks up in Sacred Scars, the sequel. The alternating chapters work to keep readers from getting tired of either of the main characters, although I found myself more drawn to Hahp and his struggle for survival in the underground caves of the wizard school.
