Synopsis

In a world where any act of magic could open a portal to hell, the Order insures that no wizard will live to summon devils, and will kill as many innocent people as they must to prevent that greater horror. After witnessing a horrendous slaughter, the village girl Heloise opposes the Order, and risks bringing their wrath down on herself, her family, and her village.
Review
So when Robin Hobb puts a blurb on the cover I know I’ll be hooked! The second I saw this I just knew I had to get my hands on a copy of it. This short novel had me hooked from page one! This book does not let up….. From the beginning you get to know all these characters and then BOOM all the hell happens to them. The world building was done well in a short span without being too informative or without enough detail. This story to me was very character driven. Heloise is my new favorite character! I absolutely loved reading her. She always manages to work through any difficulty and keeps fighting. I am now a big fan of Myke Cole and am on to read book two as I write this!
