I cannot recommend this book enough—I was hooked from the first pages, and it only got better from there. The inner lives of the characters are fully fleshed out, and while the world building does not get in the way of the plot at all I had the sense of being fully immersed in a beautiful, complex, lived-in world. I’m probably going to have to read it a few more times while I wait for the sequel. It’s a page-turner all the way through, and the build up to the climax left me rooting for all the main cast, even when they were working against each other.  The characters incidentally queer in a way we need more of in fantasy!!! This book also has the best archery lesson scene in fiction, period.

Hi, I wrote this little book, and I think it's pretty great :) 
This book has given me a hell of a time since its characters first showed up in my head, but I love the story it has become and I believe I've finally done it justice. I'm so excited to share it with you.
