As usual, Shinn delivers a fascinating story. Wen is a powerful and captivating protagonist, and her intricately and believably plotted story is absolutely wonderful. Fans of the Twelve Houses series will gladly immerse themselves in this story.

Rider Wen, despairing of her place in Gillengaria after the war and after her perceived failure to protect her king, is in the land of Fortunalt, controlled by one of the formerly rebellious houses of her nation. Committed to helping those in need as penance for her failure, Wen doesn't get close to anyone.

Then she helps a girl who has been abducted by one of her suitors. Upon
their arrival at Karryn's home, Wen discovers that her rescuee is the heir to the estate known as Fortune -- one of those responsible for the king's death. (Ace, Nov., 416 pp., $24.95)
