The bes in this trilogy,
This review is from: Slaves of the Mastery (Wind on Fire) (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book out of the three in the trilogy. I think that the ideas in it and the seperate roles that the different characters take on help to develop them and gives the reader a very clear idea of each personality.
Slaves Of The Mastery follows the Manth family as they are captured from their city aloung with the other citizens and driven off by the army from the Mastery. The idea of slavery is a very powerful one and it draws all the characters togetehr in this difficult situation.
The way in which this story is written is very powerful and the tragedies and injustices suffered by the captured people are described perfectly. Bowman and Kestrel the heroes in these trilogies - work perfectly together and give such a depth to the story that makes it truly enjoyable.
This book is definately worth the read but it is ESSENTIAL to have read the Windsinger first, though a synopsis of the story so far is provided.
