Character development is strong as Rani continues to struggle with her past. As with the previous novels, this has a gritty sense of realism that belies the fantasy setting and imperfect characters who strive to rectify their mistakes. Rani’s growing awareness of her own destiny and the difficult choices she faces resonate and evoke sympathy for this strong heroine.
