All the young orphan wanted was security in a world that destroyed her family and left her alone and homeless. Can the simple farmgirl find a new family through voluntary enslavement to the duke's household?
Crafted in a highly precise writing style so smooth it slips right from the page into your imagination, this fantastical storyworld examines timeless social issues that inform global justice today.
My thoughts: I wasn’t sure what I expected when I opened this book, but it certainly wasn’t what I found. Not that that’s a bad thing; I rather enjoyed the book! The story revolves around an Itzi girl who gives herself as a Freewill slave to the duke of her land. Her character is nearly perfect, but still makes mistakes, like any other human being.
The plot line wasn’t very tangible. I couldn’t tell where the story was going until the last chapter, though it was hinted at earlier. There are a lot of grisly descriptions, so squeamish readers should look out.
Apart from the representations of Keedrina and the duke, I didn’t notice any reference to Christian thinking. Maybe there was something and I just didn’t see it, but I was a little disappointed in that regard.
My rating: 3 stars
I received this book free from the author. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.
