Fun Novella (novelette?). Like Weaver's Shroud I thoroughly enjoyed the author's style, the setting, and the characters. The story was fairly simple and as I mentioned in my review of Weaver's Shroud I'd have liked more ... But it was a fun read regardless. Others have listed this as perhaps a YA novella but I disagree ... It was straight forward and lacked numerous counter plots but I find it more like a fast paced fantasy romp like fantasy was before the bloated 600+ page fantasy novel became the expected page count.
