My Synopsis: Rain has always been a slave. She lived with and worked for the kind Lord Peachtree, but Lord Peachtree has had a bad peach harvest for the past several years, and then gambled away what little he had left. After selling off his extra land, equipment and animals, he is left with no choice but to start selling his slaves – and the latest to be sold is Rain. Taken away by the weasely and dishonest Snevil, she starts to despair after days that no one will buy her. However, late one day, a drunken Lord comes along, buys every slave that Snevil had, and then frees them. Rain, along with the boy Coal, decides to stay with Lord Seranfyll, despite the rumors that persist in naming him a devil and magic user. While Seranfyll is a mage, he is also kind and takes in the children, naming them his siblings. Rain’s adventures are just beginning.
My Thoughts: This is a charming book, full of fun and magic – as well as danger and adventure – and is one I highly recommend for anyone, from the age where they can read this up through anyone of any age. It is a delightful read and I highly recommend it.
