Thoughts: Tamora Pierce does it again with yet another beautiful novel about over coming the norm and rising on top! This book will make you angry and cheer for the main character as you follow her through life at the castle. You will also fall in love with a band of fantastic characters that are put in such detail that you feel like they are your friends. I loved this book and will continue on with this series as soon as I can get my hands on the next book! I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a beautiful story as well as a quick read.
