Once again Chambers draws us in to Kiva’s life in Madina Basin, the hidden Sahra’ home deep in the Miralaja wasteland. Kiva is settling in as a Windwalker and about to start a female sect to mirror the male-only one. But when she is viciously attacked on her way home by members of the Order of the Red Sons, who appear to want to return the basin to a time before females being members of the formerly male-only sects, a warning is issued: she must either leave the basin or those close to her will be in danger.
I enjoyed this book very much. We learned more of the Sahra’ people’s past, and of ancient threats to their existence. The characters are all well developed – as is the world – and it is a pleasure to read such a well-written story. This is truly a fascinating world Chambers has created, and I love being able to return to it.
