I'm reviewing this quite late after reading it and I don't remember much, except that I found it disappointing and slightly boring. ( )

In this first book of a new fantasy trilogy, Corki and Pippa barely remember their lives before Grassland. Now they toil as diggers for their masked taskmasters, the Spears. But change is coming, and it may bring with it the opportunity for the children to escape their lives of slavery. This book made me want to read the sequel, and I can't wait to read it. ( )

Book description
The first in a new adventure trilogy full of danger, bravery, and unexpected friendships

Welcome to Grassland, where the only hope of freedom is to go beyond the reach of sinister, silent masters, and the only family you know are your fellow captives. Coriko has never known a world beyond his cell and the fields where he toils all day. He does what he’s told and tries not to anger the Spears, the cruel, masked jailers who guard him and the other child slaves. If he gathers baskets of shards and keeps quiet and orderly, then he can spend time with his cellmate and best friend, Pippa.

But without warning, the children’s orderly lives begin to change—slowly at first, with the arrival of a pair of siblings who speak Coriko and Pippa’s language. Soon after, violent events shake up the quiet world of Grassland, and Coriko must find the strength to grasp his freedom. Full of heartstopping action, Escape the Mask introduces Coriko, Pippa, and their friends—and begins the journey of The Grassland Trilogy.
