The story follows a witch, Salaire, who learns about her mother’s troubling deal to get what she wanted. In the end, it is Salaire who must follow through on the deal and lead the nonhumans to freedom.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and didn’t want to put it down. The dialogue kept the story going with enough description to show where we were in this magical world. From the onset of the story, it is evident that Salaire just wants to be left alone but by the end, she is thriving in her new role which shows great character growth.
There was some indication of a potential love interest but it didn’t delve deeply into that part of the storyline. Thank goodness! Too many stories get sidetracked by the love interest and I lose interest in the story.
The characters were all very interesting and had their own personality. I even read their dialogues in the voices I thought they would be using. From the witch to the wolves to the dwarves and everyone in between it was interesting to see how they all came together.
Even though this is the first in the series the ending was still very satisfying. I am always very disappointed in a book when nothing is resolved, luckily the troubles that arose in this book were handled in this book. The epilogue was the cliffhanger, as it should be, showing where the next book will lead us.
This book is worth the read and I hope to review the next in the series when it comes out.
