Prologue: Washed Away
Blood and rain dripped from the wagon onto the cobbled street of the busy market district of Kerjeel. A crowd made up of neighbors and other bystanders flanked two young girls in mourning. Jamine was crying.
Meg was too numb to cry as she stared at the sheet-draped shapes laying in the back of the wagon. Mr. Horak, their landlord, was telling the whole story to one of the city guards.
Never heard of this author before, but I am glad I bought the book. My only gripe is the first few pages/chapters seemed a bit disjointed. After moving on from the “mundane” world the story gets it’s legs under it and really starts rolling. There are some loose ends that I am looking forward to finding out about in the next book. I was a bit shocked that it ended the way it did, but I can certainly say it makes me want the next book. Excellent job, looking forward to your next installment.
Francis is a literary mastermind. His ability to engage young readers and still leave additional substance for adult readers is Rowling-esque. The juxtaposition of the sisters’ personalities drives the tale all on its own, and leaves you begging for more. Excellent first entry by Francis.
