Three hundred years after a great war shattered the Council of Races, the warriors of Rüddan have all but eradicated their cousins, the faerie Aethel. In so doing, they decimated the Dryht sages and enslaved mortal Humanity. Now a voice rises above the chaos and calls her people to rebel. Young Sabine, one of the Human slaves, must learn to overcome centuries of lies and prejudice to forge an alliance between four enemy races. But what chance does she stand to overthrow the Rüddan with her dangerous secret, a secret that threatens not only her own life but the existence of all the races on the planet?
It 's a truly amazing fantasy, the author was very good at capturing my attention from the first page and it was really hard to put it down. She has created a fascinating world, I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
Sabine is a healer and seeks to free the humanity which is now enslaved by the Rüddan. Her eyes are the means by which we see the suffering that these oppressors inflict on defenseless men. Will she be able to save her people without the use of magic?
It 's a fun read, well written with an original storyline and a great pace. It 's really different from the other fantasy I've read, there's not much adventure or magic, it is above the story of the rebellion and redemption of people from oppression.
If you love fantasy this book is a must read
“Understand this,” he said at last, his voice low, his words deliberate. “You are sani-noth now – you are without honor. You are not even capable of the ability to possess or exercise such a lofty characteristic. The very breath you inhale is a privilege, the very blink of your eye a gift of my grace. If you blink again, it is simply because I deem it appropriate for you to do so.”
