“I looked down the row of Aska hunched against each other, ducking behind the muddy hill. The fog sat on the field like a veil, but we could hear it. The blades of swords and axes brushing against armor vests. Quick footsteps in sucking mud. My heart beat almost in rhythm with the sounds, pulling one breath in and letting it touch another before I let it go.”
This book was so captivating. Adrienne Young did a fantastic job of creating characters who were both compelling and complex, and scenery that was vivid and detailed.
