    1. The second installment of Kritzer's Dead Rivers Trilogy shares many of its predecessor's enjoyable features -- thrilling adventures, narrow escapes, calculated risk-taking, swashbuckling battles -- while expanding on the fantasy elements of shamanism and sorcery. Kritzer continues to centre femaleness in her worldbuilding; while Freedom's Gate introduced us to the homosocial sisterhoods of the desert bandit tribes, Freedom's Apprentice explores the competing factions of all-female sorceresses st [...]

    2. ‘Freedom’s Apprentice’ (Bantam Spectra, $6.99, 356 pages) is also a nicely written tale with an interesting setup: When Penelope was pining for Odysseus around 1200 BCE, she wove herself into a meditative state that allowed her to capture djinn, or genies, and make them do her bidding. This sorcery (limited to women) naturally changed the shape of the ancient world, though Alexander the Great did still come along and do some serious conquering.‘Freedom’s Apprentice’ kicks in around 2 [...]

    3. I enjoyed the first volume more, but this was still a solid, enjoyable read that fits perfectly as the second "act" in a trilogy. Having cut ties with her former employer and the rebel group she was investigating for him (voluntarily and involuntarily, respectively), Lauria sets herself a goal of freeing a handful of slaves who she'd originally dragged back to slavery when she was still in Kyron's employ. The variety of challenges presented by the situations of each slave she wishes to free kept [...]

    4. I wasn't expecting to already be finished, but it was really good enough. It was really interesting. Tamar and Lauria are wonderful and Kritzer makes their adventures believable. But they never get away too easily. When she pulls the rug out from under her characters, she REALLY send them crashing down, which is great because then I get to read about how they get out of it. I'm not sure whether I truly believe their luck and accomplishments or if I'm just refusing to disbelieve because of how qu [...]

    5. I picked this up for $0.75 at a book sale, not because I was at all interested, but because I went to school with the author. :) Sorry Naomi, I misjudged the book by its cover! This was a quick, fun read. It's apparently the middle book of a trilogy, but I didn't have any problem picking the story up midstream. All around enjoyable fantasy book in a fun world of magic.
