- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 October #2
Meira, an orphan in the Kingdom of Winter, lives without magic or a monarch as she trains to become a warrior. When the kingdom was conquered years ago, no one knew what would become of them, save that they would be slaves to the other kingdoms. Meira, however, is determined to triumph over her situation, even as she is falling head over heels for her best friend (and the future king) Mather. In an effort to bring magic and freedom back to her people, she starts off on a journey to find eight survivors of the takeover and an ancient locket that could be the key to everything. She must be careful around the Spring city master and slave owners, who treat the Winterians as second-class scum. Raasch's first novel is quite an undertaking: a new society, a grand adventure, and a first romance, all rolled into one big fantasy epic. The characters are compelling, even the villains, and the brave journey from Meira's point of view makes for an exciting story. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
