Publisher's Summary

Cynthia has always hidden from her father's hexes behind her older sister. When her family gains independence unheard of for women, she's relieved that her days of harsh punishments are over. But as her seventeenth birthday approaches - the typical age to be sold to a new master - death threats endanger her sisters. She now faces two options: run or meet society's expectations.
For once, Cynthia isn't going to let her older sister shield her from the problem. She's going to prove to herself, her sisters, and society that her family isn't a threat to their traditions. She willingly chooses to be purchased by a new master. A bold step that takes her somewhere she never thought she would go and to a man she might possibly fall in love with. With his help, she may just find a way to save her sisters while discovering how to stand up for herself. If she lives long enough.

Good story but couldn't listen to the narrator

I read the first book and liked it so when I saw that I could get the 2nd on audible I was excited. I should have previewed it first. All of the characters sounded the same and I found her voice to be grating. The story is good and I like the concept but I think I will just read the books instead of listen.

Revealing new secrets

Any additional comments?

Second book in the Mine series.

The author returns us to a world where women are considered property and, supposedly, their only value is their ability to produce magically endowed male children. This time the protagonist is a sister of the previous book's protagonist. We get to watch as she directly challenges some of the most firmly held beliefs of her society.

I especially liked how the protagonist's personality differs from how her sister perceived her in the previous book. Part of this is due to the secrets she kept from her sister.
