I loved this story I was swept away by the setting, the characters and the adventures of a young boy finding his way in a complex world and learning his true nature and purpose This is a beautifully written, dark and compelling fantasy that explores gender roles and identity. I really like this trilogy It sounds weird when you read the synopsis, but it s really good. This plot hinges on a rather interesting idea What if a boy was really a girl, but didn t know it I don t mean didn t know it in the sense of the The Ill Made Mute, but truly didn t know it, and most people didn t know it.Flewelling starts to answer such questions in this book She also looks at how a land that once used women warriors slowly changes its view on them It s strange because there is not much action in the traditional sense of the word in the book It isabout family, fait This plot hinges on a rather interesting idea What if a boy was really a girl, but didn t know it I don t mean didn t know it in the sense of the The Ill Made Mute, but truly didn t know it, and most people didn t know it.Flewelling starts to answer such questions in this book She also looks at how a land that once used women warriors slowly changes its view on them It s strange because there is not much action in the traditional sense of the word in the book It isabout family, faith, cost, and a willingness to pay It ends rather suddenly.Yet,
