As Tamar searches for Lauria both in reality and in the dreamlike realm known as the borderland, Lauria must trust the magic within to fulfill a wish both desired and feared: freedom for all. But learning to harness magic will come at a greater price than she ever imagined. For a bit, just briefly, it looked like Lauria and Tamar might shift from a sworn-sister relationship to a more romantic relationship. Though her narration is void of eroticism that I could identify , the novel ends with a declaration of love that opens the door to many possibilities in the sequel. When her identity was discovered, she was cast out by both sides. Every single twist fit neatly and believably into the story.

Freedom's Apprentice by Naomi Kritzer

freedom s apprentice kritzer naomi

Desperate for a spell-chain to free a mine slave, Lauria turns to her enemies—the Sisterhood of Weavers—and apprentices herself to a sorceress. When confronted with this rare specimen, I have always had to choose: either this pairing will be platonic or it will be sexual, and whatever it is, the paucity of female love on the page and on-screen will leave me craving more of both and leaving me to pin all my demands on this one representation. With Freedom's Gate, acclaimed author Naomi Kritzer introduced a dangerous world of magic and intrigue. I'm not sure whether I truly believe their luck and accomplishments or if I'm just refusing to disbelieve because of how qu I wasn't expecting to already be finished, but it was really good enough. Striking from the blighted wastelands, her army of reformers has grown in number—adding liberated slaves to its ranks.

Kritzer's writing seems to take the innate femininity of magic itself for granted, which I find interesting mostly for the matter-of-fact style in which it is executed. Once the trusted aide to powerful military commander Kyros, freeborn Lauria hunted down his escaped slaves. From there, she will stage an escape and continue on in her guise as a runaway. In fact, a huge collection of djinni were put to work rerouting two major Central Asian rivers, the Syr Darya and the Amu Darya, which altered geography and history. Now she continues the story of Lauria, a bold young woman who has turned against a way of life she once believed in. In the previous book, young military aide Lauria, who tracked escaped slaves and spied for Kyros a commander of the conquering alliance of Greek military forces and sorceresses , secretly switched her allegiance to the feared Alashi rebels, but was cast out by the steppe tribes when her previous loyalties were revealed.

I have read your story collection, Cat Pictures, Please! While certain elements of this sequel were so thoroughly enjoyable that I wished I could wrap them in a bow and gift them to my younger self such as the synasthetic art of constructing beaded spellchains and telepathic communication via a spiritual dreamland , Apprentice did not quite live up to the pleasure I took in Lauria's adventures with the bandits in Gate. Sorceresses can control djinni, though it eventually costs them their sanity, and the djinni can do things like fly and build canals.

She now lives in Minneapolis with her family. As Tamar searches for Lauria both in reality and in the dreamlike realm known as the borderland, Lauria must trust the magic within to fulfill a wish both desired and feared: freedom for all…. The Weavers — sorcereresses who gain power by enslaving djinni — almost inevitably suffer from bipolar syndrome, which gets worse the more djinni they bind. That said, I can't help but feel that much of the novel's ambiguity regarding this central relationship is deliberate: on numerous occasions, Lauria is interrogated as to whether she and Tamar are lovers, but Lauria refuses to answer the question, either to her interrogator or to the reader. Now she continues the story of Lauria, a bold young woman who has turned against a way of life she once believed in. With Freedom's Gate, acclaimed author Naomi Kritzer introduced a dangerous world of magic and intrigue.
