In the final volume of the Glasswright saga, Rani Trader confronts her past and begins to regret the sacrifices she has
had to make in her quest to become a Glasswright Master. Escaping the invading armies, she flees to Sarmonia, where
she begins to deal with her past faults in political dealings, with men and with the Fellowship of Jair. Now she must search within herself for the courage to make her own future and defy those who would use her for their own ends.

Character development is strong as Rani continues to struggle with her past. As with the previous novels, this has a gritty sense of realism that belies the fan-tasy setting and imperfect characters who strive to rectify their mistakes. Rani's growing awareness of her own destiny
and the difficult choices she faces resonate and evoke sympathy for this strong heroine. Definitely not a stand-alone, this tale relies heavily on previous events and their consequences. As such, it provides a satisfactory closure on Rani's adventures. (Jun., 352 pp., $6.99)
