About the Book

 

“Sir Roland has invited us to visit for the Autumn Feast.”

 

“Do we have to go, Papa? I couldn’t feast with the most crooked politician in all of Briznom.”

 

As the daughter of a Briznomian vassal lord, Vannie Cumberland has spent her childhood immersed in the world of politics. Relations between Briznom and the neighboring country of Calhortz are strained due to the tyrannical rule of the strytes. A proposed alliance could calm relations between the two countries, but would come at the cost of Briznom’s freedom.

 

When her father’s political archenemy invites them to the Autumn Feast, Vannie uncovers an evil scheme endangering the life of someone close to her. Personal enmity comes to a dangerous head as Vannie struggles to expose the corruption and stop the alliance. Time is running out.

 

Events are becoming too big for her to handle. Will Sir Roland’s son help or will things finally spiral out of control?

My Review_Five Stars

My Review:

 

Espionage! This, by far, is my favorite of Morgan’s books.

 

Back in November, I read this as a beta reader-slash-editor, and I really enjoyed the story.

 

As opposed to occurring over several months, it occurs over a period of about a week, so events are more detail-specific – something I really enjoy. It kept you in the moment, in Vannie’s adorable head, without dragging on because of too much description.

 

The characters were great. I loved Vannie and her two little sisters, Kate and Mandie (and the fact that I share a name with Mandie of course was a plus).

And Kyle. Kyle was so sweet. As for Kermit, well, not so much, and you’ll see why. The rest of the characters were well-done, though with the length of the book – about one hundred pages – only so much can be said, and understandably so. It’s a novella!

 

I enjoyed the plot a lot. I can’t say too much for fear of giving it away, but basically, it’s very scheme-y and action-y and dastardly. You’ll just have to read it to find out more!

 

I should probably mention that this is a companion to the Time Captives series, by the same author, and is not a standalone book. While it’s definitely a plus to have at least read Creighton Hill, you don’t need to memorize every detail – just know the basic events, the good guys and bad guys, and be familiar with the world.

 

I especially would have enjoyed this book as a late elementary and early middle school kid – it’s a fun, action-packed, colorful summer read, and you won’t be disappointed!
