A brother and sister play at being heroes, and the game changes their lives.
This is a novella. It stands alone but is set about 12 years after Street Fox and several generations after The King's Sword.

The start of the book somehow reminded me of Peter Pan, captured by the pirates. That feeling was reinforced as the first chapter continued but gradually dropped away as I was enveloped in a medieval world of peasant and noble. Although part of a series, this novella stands well on its own and is complete unto itself. I had the pleasure of enjoying the audio version which kept me enthralled. It was rather like listening to a storyteller sharing tales of long ago. The narration is not perfect but the narrator's vocal range brought the characters to life. My first reaction upon finishing was to reach for another story set in this world.
I really enjoyed this entertaining audiobook. You soon became attached to the "heroes." A brother and sister team who rescue people from bandits as part of a game. This game leads them into trouble but it also paves the way to their future. Even though it is fairly short, there is a lot of enjoyable story packed in there. It has action, suspense, humour, romance and some great characters. The narration took a little bit to grow on me but in the end I thought he fit the story and characters well. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation.
while not a long story it certainly got my interest. it is about how one fearless girl and her brother met a Lord's son and their different encounters as they grow up. I'm really interested in her brother and what happens as he works for a general's son. no sexual content and some violence are in the story.
