In a single moment of defiance, driven by a rash act of compassion for a stranger, Rhodri turns his back on his unit, his country and his comrades in arms. Taken in by the Plains Hawk tribe, he finds compassion, love, and a new purpose for his unique memory. But just as he is beginning to accept his decision, an invasion from the east throws the tribe into chaos, and threatens to destroy the new life he has built.
Rhodri must rally the tribes to take on his former comrades, his former friends, and fight the forces of the crown he swore to protect-and the sister he has never known. Thrust into the role of leader, he must use the very lessons he learned in the King's Third against his closest friends, and his most bitter enemy.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"The Art of Forgetting" tackled real issues in such a smooth way. The author courageously redefines social boundaries by tackling real issues such as; gendery identity and sexuality. As someone who is active in the LGBTQ community I admire the way she approached these topics. I wish there were more authors who can uniquely incorporate these themes into fantasy stories. I enjoyed the plot very much. There was a never moment where I felt bored. Who I admired most in this story is the heroic character Rhodri who deals with his issues with resilience. I'd definitely read this book a second and third time. I'd also recommend this book to family and friends.
