Jane is at Miss Preston's school to learn how to defend and protect in the hope she will be hired by an elite family. What she gets is the lessons but is then sent west to protect a town. The secrets she learns cause her to seek her freedom.
I liked Jane. She is kick-ass and determined. She knows what is what and is not willing to pretend that those is power care about her or those of her class. She is also smart. She has the skills to save herself and the empathy to save her friends if possible.
I had a hard time putting this book down. I hope the sequel comes soon. I want to know if Jane makes it. Loved this book!
