Rating I liked it but wouldn’t read it again 3 StarsInterestingly this seuel to Dragonfly seems to be aimed at a younger audience – I would’ve thought it would be the other way around There aren’t really any major spoilers if you happen to read the books in the wrong order – although people and events from the first story are mentioned in this book it’s set about 18 years later in another country with new charactersAlthough it’s a perfectly well written book it’s just not complex enough for my tastes It reads like a bit of a moralistic right vs wrong instant love piece of fluff Usually I love fluff but this was too unrealistic to me given its many potentially heavy themes Perhaps it would be a good book for early teens to initiate them into stories that have moral values and to highlight injustice in the world without going into the nitty gritty depressing detail of what those situations would really be likeThe story seemed to lack any overall threat of danger or evil; there were smaller evils incidental to the story as it progressed but nothing overall Similarly the plot seemed to veer off in new directions and leave the old behind changing the rules which made it seem a bit choppy The secondary characters didn’t interest me very much at all and only seemed to be there because they had to be; the Master got next to no view time view spoilereven though it’s HIS country that’s falling to pieces Sure they eventually re elected him to the throne but in the meantime he didn’t make a fuss or any claims or even try to be in charge or say how things should go hide spoiler

The Glass SwallowLs to a strange new country Her trip becomes a nightmare when bandits attack and she is abandoned in a society on the edge of disaster To survive she must discover new strengths in herself and seek out the other people that this society has scorned including a young. While I liked The Glass Swallow ok it did have its flaws It was not nearly as good as its companion novel Dragonfly I was hoping for of the adventure that was found in that story One thing I had a problem with was the part in the book where the main character decides that a murdering bandit was just forced into the life he leads In her mind he had no choice because he was thrown out of the city and had no other means to provide for himself So she walks into his camp with a gift for him asking if he will come and lead an army of men to protect the city First I cannot agree with this type of thinking There is always a choice whether or not to become a murderer There were plenty of other people who didn't go around murdering who were faced with the same hardships In reality a person’s character isn't just built by the hardships and trials they face it's also revealed And yes sometimes people make the wrong choices when faced with them But the fact that this guy was murdering people goes way beyond redeemable Second I hardly think that bringing a gift to a murdering bandit is going to make him change his ways I thought that was really laughable and naive Thus a part of this book was rendered completely ridiculous to me The other thing that I had issues with is that it fell to a 16 year old girl to save a whole country No one else had any brains I liked everything else about the book though I liked the messages about everyone being worth something and about working together to overcome obstacles I also liked once again seeing Taoshira and Ramil from Dragonfly even if only briefly
