“Some people change the world, and some people change the people who change the world.”
A well-told, if predictable adventure fantasy. Good development and voice. I really like this story. Finalist for 2017 Hugo for novellas.
“When were women anything but footnotes to men’s tales?”
Unique in that the protagonist is not only female, but a mature woman. And she acts it.
“This is what life is, then. Doing things you hate. I’ll do it. Of course. It’s the right thing.”
I love maps in fantasy stories, however the map in the ebook edition was unreadable. Nice cover art.
