I really enjoyed this book, however, I would have liked to have read more about Micah’s homecoming. How he finally meets his father after over a decade of being held hostage, how he copes with the knowledge he’s Eli’s master and whether he recuperates from being mute for so long. As it is, I felt the book was incomplete. I’m hoping there will be a sequel so we can find out all about Micah’s new life in Alekia and if he has been able to settle in nicely. Nevertheless, I still recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a good, dark, short story about a broken boy and how he finally returns home.
