The third in an interesting series about magic rulers tyrannically ruling Britain and the burgeoning revolutionary resistance set on unseating them.
The book shows points from both magic users and non-magic characters, and the suffering they’re put through. In this series, non magic-users have to complete a period of servitude to the magic users. It’s basically state sanctioned slavery. Forces from within the non-magic users (and within the nobility as well) seek to abolish the slave days–and possibly return to the non-magic rule they lost generations ago.
It’s a nifty trilogy–the characters are compelling, the world is thoroughly built, and it keeps you turning pages. I really liked the trilogy.
