Jennifer Bresnick is a 2007 graduate of Mount Holyoke College with a major in history. Born and raised on Long Island, NY, she now resides in the Boston area, fervently avoiding all discussions about professional sports.
When she isn't writing down the conversations in her head to give them an appearance of respectability, Jen enjoys crocheting silly animal hats, being creative in the kitchen, and on a completely unrelated note, putting out kitchen fires.

Having already read The Last Death of Tev Chrisini, I found this book an extremely enjoyable foray back into that world, as Ms Bresnick bestows upon us, morsel by morsel, some of the history of Seovann, and his sister, Sanemki, and their relationship with the Chittura - a Delai Lama-like spiritual leader of the walled city where most of the action happens in this novel.
It doesn't matter if you haven't already read any of the other books set in this unique world - this work is self-contained and stands up on its own. If this is your first adventure in this world, you may find yourself hungry for more adventures into this wonderful, complex world... I've found myself chasing down this author's work, and have even joined a small throng of people gently encouraging the author, via her blog, to finish her next work set in this world

Great story about the power of words and choices, and the consequences thereof. It illuminates the shadowy world of political intrigues and the shows that even a seemingly common man may have a part to play in the greater political theater.
I wholly recommend this story if you are a fan of fantasy, drama, and even love and loss. I enjoyed tremendously and I will enjoy reading it again.
