Summary of the Book:
In this feminist fantasy series, the ability to do magic has given women control over their own bodies. But as the patriarchy starts to fall, they must now learn to rule as women, not men.
Alys may be the acknowledged queen of Women’s Well—the fledgling colony where women hold equal status with men—but she cares little for politics in the wake of an appalling personal tragedy. It is grief that rules her now. But the world continues to turn.
In a distant realm unused to female rulers, Ellin struggles to maintain control. Meanwhile, the king of the island nation of Khalpar recruits an abbess whom he thinks holds the key to reversing the spell that Alys’s mother gave her life to create. And back in Women’s Well, Alys’s own half-brother is determined to bring her to heel. Unless these women can all come together and embrace the true nature of female power, everything they have struggled to achieve may be at risk.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I read the first book in this series and it was good. I love the way the story is told and women wanting control over their own lives. This story is empowering and get my energy. I enjoy the three main women in this story all trying to do what they can for women. There is magic in this world that gives them the strength to take control over themselves. I love the world this series takes place in.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
