Compelling story about love, parenthood, and war. Nice strong female protagonist who displays both ingenuity and initiative.
Was frustrated she didn'tmake better use of the bodyguard/security character Dru's unique training and knowledge, or fix the staffing issue of only having a single dedicated female bodyguard/handmaiden for the Regent's wife. Both glad and sorry she didn't flinch at killing of significant characters.
What I'm currently reading: Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal, by Conor Grennan
Joy and hope in tragic circumstances, written with humor and, one hopes, equal parts humility and honesty. Also essentially a coming of age narrative by/about the author- coming into true adulthood, at least.
what I'll read next is not set, though I'm also in the middle of a couple other books.
