After the Paper Magician Trilogy, and the somewhat weird 'Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet, this is yet another Charlie N Holmberg book that I enjoyed. There's not a lot of action, but it still captivated me.
Poor Smitha is cursed, and since that curse of her threatens her environment, she soon finds herself an outcast, hunted by the peasants of villages she gets too close to.
However, there is one people who are willing to take her in, because her curse can actually help them.
At first, Smitha isn't a very likable character, but she learns a lot in the course of a few years, and she undergoes some changes that change her life yet again.
The narrator did a good job once again, and the book was enjoyable.
