    This is a really good story! But not a book,so Barnes & Noble would be well-advised to accurately advertise it & many others as novellas or stories. I was disappointed it was not full length.

    The characters, plot & setting were captivating, even though I have not read any of the actual books in this fantasy series. It is successful on its own. But I would like to know more about the main character & Taavi. Perhaps they will be part of another book? The writing makes me want to read more by this author. I highly recommend this, as it has a depth to it most shorter works don't achieve! I could relate to the character & her coming to realize the complexity & implications of her difficult task as well as her own identity.

    Beth Bernobich's latest book, actually novella, in her River of Souls series is Thief of War. It serves to tell one of the back stories her readers have been begging for. This is the tale of how the the three fabled jewels of Lir were first stolen. But, as usual for Ms. Bernobich's work, it is so very much more. It is, primarily, the story of a woman, Arbija, who has vowed to do anything within her power, which is pretty formidable, to keep her lands from being conquered. Arbija undertakes years of intense training, changes her face, and becomes someone else, someone who can gain access to where she will need to be to fulfill her task. It is also, along the way, the story of a woman who learns who she really is underneath all the training and subterfuge.

    An excellent story and the only failing I could find is that I wish it had been a novel; I would have loved to have the chance to read more about Arbija and her world.
