This was such a fun read. I really liked seeing Numeir's history. It was a bit slow at first , and that actually kept me from finishing it the first few times I started. Now that I've actually finished it, I'm curious to see how it continues in the next book when it's out.

Tamora Pierce's writing is so comforting and her characters so relatable and lovable. I enjoyed this prequel book and the diverse characters introduced in it. It is a bit slow paced though, perhaps because it is a prequel I am champing for the dramatic stuff that I know has to happen!

the dramatic irony! the foreshadowing! so far casting the events of the immortals series in a much deeper light; excited for more.

Numair has always been one of my favorite characters, so I really enjoyed reading about his past. I also really enjoyed learning more about the school and how it operates. I really look forward to the next installment to see how things turn between him and Ozorne.

I always love Pierce's style of writing- the beginning of this book I was having trouble with the pacing, but once I learned to vibe with the main character it flowed easily

 I've been waiting over a decade for this book, and it didn't disappoint! Little Arram is completely recognizable as the precursor to the intelligent, focused, and charming adult that we first met in "The Immortals Quartet." Both those of us already familiar with him and new readers will immediately pick up on three important themes: Arram's exploration of his magic, his friendships with Ozorne and Varice, and Arram's connection to the larger socio-political connection to Carthak, particularly to its practice of slavery, which Arram abhors. The book's end left me VERY MUCH looking forward to the continuation of Arram's story.
