Rating: 4/5 Stars
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
I started this book with a pang in my heart because I knew that my favorite half-Nadir, half-Drenai, Tenaka Khan was dead. His son was now the Khan of the Nadir and his daughter, Tanaki, exiled. Having conquered the Drenai, the Nadir were now the ruling nation in power.
This story brought to my mind the image of a snowball rolling down a hill, gathering mass and momentum until at the bottom it’s the size of a mountain, headed on a collision course. How the search for one common woman led to a grander scheme.
QFLH was filled with unlikely heroes who had a lot of personal demons to face and complicated events, appearing fragmented but were instead all part of a bigger picture. There was adventure and magic and mayhem. Unthinkable atrocities and heartbreak.
And Tenaka Khan, decent and noble as always, even in death.
