Lhind even has secrets from herself, for she has few memories, and those are troubling. I can recommend to teens and up. The Thiff of Black Wings.
The others were not explored much and I would have been interested with Rajanas. In this book we learn who Lhind is and we see her react to kindness and trust – some of her about-turns I found a bit difficult to believe from her age and the way the past had treated her she would really be so easy to manipulate by the bone whistle when she had luind at trusting the necklace and Hlanan, within reasonable suspicion I thought?

Lhind – who is far more complex than your standard girl-disguised-as-boy – rarely does anything but hit the ground running, and thinks hard while she does.

Overall, it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t one of the best of Smith’s works either. View all 3 comments. I also had an enormously difficult time picturing Lhind. I know there are a lot of little details like the one mentioned above that I know I’m missing out on all over the place but when I do catch one I find myself even more in awe of the magic of her tale-spinning and all the amazing detail that goes into the writing of these stories.
But this is the first and maybe only book in the series, so I’m not exactly sure how I was supposed to have known all this information about them already.

And thank goodness that it was not full of all the angsty-instalove, grimdark, political, dystopian yhe that are so prevalent in YA novels nowadays.
