Razo--short, funny and not a great soldier--is sure it's out of pity that his captain asks him to join an elite mission--escorting the ambassador into Tira, Bayern's great enemy.
But when the Bayern arrive in the strange southern country, it’s Razo who discovers the first dead body. He’s the only Bayern able to befriend both the high and low born, people who can provide information about the ever-increasing murders. And he’s the one who must embrace his own talents in order to get the Bayern soldiers home again, alive.
OH MY GOSH! Is it possible this series could get any better?! I just Love Razo! What a spunky cool kid! This story is brimming with adventure and intrigue, mixed with some romance! What's not to like?!
This next installment takes place in Tiran. Yes that's right, the land whom the Bayern were in a war with in the last book. They are there to establish peace. This is Razo's story, and he is a spy for Bayern!
All of our favorite characters are still here: Isi, Geric, Finn, and Enna! Shannon Hale keeps getting better and better!! I think Razo is my favorite boy. He is such a cutie, and the girls love him in this book!
"I'm Razo, a member of Bayern's Own,' he said, stopping himself from adding "Loafing is just a hobby of mine."
Bayern's Own? But you're a child.'
Razo looked up to the sky. 'I'm not a child, I'm just short."
