I do enjoy this series. I had to recheck this out because it came in when I had a bunch of other books and having difficulty reading. So glad I rechecked it out! ( )

Kaylin frustrated me a bit on this installment.
Khristine Hvam does an excellent job as a narrator... as always. ( )

More of the same as the previous books, but in this case thats a good thing as they were really fun :) ( )

A little long and meandering in some parts, but a lot of threads finally come together here, and it's lovely how they do. ( )

It's not that I'm not enjoying the more philosophical/theoretical magic turn this series has taken, especially since Kaylin is not the sort of character who immediately has all the answers--but wow, do I miss the procedural aspects of the series.

Epigraph
Dedication
This is for Mr. Liebgott, Ms. Gann, Ms. Evans,
Maggie Fehlberg, teachers all.


My teachers. They probably deserved better than I gave them, but they encouraged my love of reading, and when it blossomed—at an early age—into childish attempts to write books (I thought that books were individually drawn and bound, which of course makes no sense), they encouraged that just as fondly.
This book wouldn’t exist without them.
First words
To say that Private Kaylin Neya was out of her element was to master the art of understatement.

Book description
The end of her journey is only the beginning....

The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous....

And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste" - one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly. With the wrong phrase she could tear a people further asunder. And with the right ones...well, then she might be able to heal a blight on a race.

If only she understood the story....
