"But be warned, young Nona: a book is as dangerous as any journey you might take. The person who closes the back cover may not be the one that opened the front one." - Sister Kettle
Now we talk about the story. Well it was, as we say in a Facebook group I am in, "It was GDAF"
The story starts some years after the first book, and like in The Vagrant there is a baby at the start of the book. but this time we see it born into the cruel world. It is spurned by its mother and taken in by someone who will care for the poor Kid.
But I have to mention the real hero of the book. Trevor Pell the priest that discovers he has magical talent. He saves Ethan's life 4 or 5 times and he has a cool name to boot.
OK this review will be shorter than most. No that doesn't mean I should be done now, shut up Bob!
