My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Oops! I forgot to write a bit about this episode when I read it!
Well, it was fun, as always!
This is the one where we get a little bit familiar with a new character… a sexxxy Asian (I mean, from “Chartil”) swordsman, who seems to think that dueling for pay, on others’ behalf, as the Riverside custom is, is terribly uncouth – but is too polite to say so. Readers, meanwhile, get to sit in on a duel…
And in a memorable scene, Micah naively insists on going down to a Riverside tavern to gamble, as no one in her relatively safe University neighborhood will put odds on her losing, anymore….
