I didn t like this quite as much as I liked the first book in the set That s mostly to do with the fact that the chosen one aspect plays a much bigger role in this book and I m not a fan of that trope.Yolen does acknowledge that Jenna s destiny relies as much on what the society expects from her as it does on anything to do with Jenna herself The people s belief in the prophecies surrounding Jenna s birth are reallyimportant than whether those prophecies are inherently true and tha I didn t like this quite as much as I liked the fi

Mythology mixed with research and then the actual events a wonderful, insightful way to present this story of war, loss, and recovery.
