Content descriptions

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 December #1
    Isoka, a ward boss (read: enforcer and debt collector) in Kahnzoka, has come to terms with her life amongst the lower echelons. She'll be an agent of the sixteenth ward for the rest of her life. The higher wards are filled with people who have magical powers, which come from the nine Wells of Sorcery. During a routine debt-collection mission, Isoka finds she has access to the most dangerous well of all: the Well of Combat. She's arrested for lying to the Emperor, and sent to retrieve a deadly ghost ship in return for her life and her sister's. But the mission is deadly—will Isoka stand a chance with new powers she hasn't been trained to use? Veteran writer Wexler, most recently known for his adult fantasy series The Shadow Campaigns and children's adventures The Forbidden Library series, has another engrossing winner on his hands. The title, cover, and content, which is often violent and sometimes racy, will evoke comparisons to Sarah J. Maas' Throne of Glass series. A recommended purchase for older readers. Grades 10-12.
