Interesting page on the connection between the two can be read here. A strong theme of the book is trust, something that Lhind’s background hasn’t included very much of, and to her credit she’s able to learn it. Just what the doctor ordered.
There’s a very light thread of romance which, for thisf, added rather than detracted.
I couldn’t like this supercilious guy, never able to think outside what was taught. Lhind is an orphan who has survived to date by thievery, aided by her unusual agility, her ability to speak any language she hears and to communicate with animals, and her facility for magic. The story begins when Lhind is captured by a mysterious group of three while illegally doing magic.
The main two characters are well-developed; perhaps if a few more of them had been I would edge it up to 5 stars.
I enjoyed the more adult action, the trade mark name calling, and the vibrant world. But almost as soon as she is captured by these three, her entire mindset changes. A Torch Against the Night. Yes, they felt something for each other but I was expecting a better confession scene and not when they were being chased.

Will it change your life? So nice to come to a book which kept making me want to read just one more page. I understand that not all book should be angsty, but at the same time not all books should be pollyannish. How much I love the thhe characters, this book failed me with the story and plot. Cute, fast paced fantasy. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
This was the exact book I was in the mood for at the exact time I read it: A Reaper at the Gates. So Lhind is abducted by Rajanas and Hlanan and want her help procuring ljind item of power. Exile of the Thidf. I also had an enormously difficult time picturing Lhind. I liked what I saw of Hlanan or Thiarna or even Rajanas view spoiler [ who I th Admittedly I still don’t see the overlap with A Posse of Princesses, but maybe that only means it’s set in the same world – and the mentioning of the various countries there really isn’t in my memory anymore – anyway, this is a hardly-ever-calming-down series of escapades for Lhind, the thief with memory gaps in her past, who doesn’t know much for sure – but she does have magic and she doesn’t look like other people.

Set up a giveaway. What I looked for then much as I do now is adventure mixed in with “people” I can identify with.
I think the wizard Dhes-Andis was the most similar to Andreus of Senna Lirwan, with the border spells and mental communications. The only part that bothered me, was the last leg of Lhind’s journey. Dec 08, Tiffany rated it really liked it. I did enjoy this book. I didn’t care much about the ending.

I will read the next installment in this series. Could I have thee at the somewhat convenient way Lhind gets randomly swept up in the adventure as one doesor the multitude of ways in which she turns out to be The Special One, whose actions will decide all?
A Posse of Princesses. I can recommend to teens and up. I really enjoy Luind Smith ‘s “lighter” fantasy novels, such as this one. Stealing what she needs, using magic for disguise, she never stays anywhere long. Only one of her team mates is fleshed out at any level, and that’s a one dimensional one.

At this point she is baffled and suspicious of her captor’s motives, and the four of them interact badly for a while, partly due to the fact that Lindh was abandoned as a child, is poorly socialized, and for some reason has little memory of her past. The several antagonists are well motivated and believably unpleasant, and Lhind’s new friends are good people who have their own flaws and struggles.
Moreover, if you are depicted as someone who doesn’t trust, the moment that trust is broken should have consequences. The Brush of Black Wings.
