I've always been a fighter. The few times when I have been at leisure, I've been miserable.
Not only is it not about Fae, it's one of those weird half-fantasies that've been turning up everywhere the last few Reviewed by: Not only is it not about Fae, it's one of those weird half-fantasies that've been turning up everywhere the last few years.
I blame Marie Rutkoski. But until recently you could count on ALL of them to have two things: Some kind of magic system.

I had time to get over my initial crankiness at finding a fictional version of England, France, and colonial America masquerading under different names and a mail order bride scheme, when I was expecting a story about things strange and fantastical.
Okay, so I'm mostly over the crankiness. I don't think I'll ever reach a place where I'll greet half-fantasy with a smile when I'm expecting full-blown fantasy, but the distance helped.

Something terrible happened to a character; some tragic event in their past that shaped a fundamental level of their personality. Long after the event is over, it still has a powerful influence in the character.
Throughout the story, there was allot of character development, not only from the children, but from Mira also. Through all of the story the point of view stayed at a camera third person. The theme the author presents, is that of love, fear, friendship, betrayal, growing up, and a search for one"s self.
