Mit diesem Konflikt hat Christopher das ganze Buch über zu kämpfen, was der Geschichte an Authentizität verleiht. Christopher repeatedly says the priests who ran the orphanage were strict and beat him often, he also says that the other boys teased him often about the harsh conditions of an apprenticeship to an apothecary, causing him to be afraid when he passes the tests and is eligible to be apprenticed to an apothecary. Man merkt dem Autor an, dass er ausführlich recherchiert hat, denn ich habe mich wirklich in die Zeit versetzt gefühlt. Christopher ist eigentlich zufrieden mit seinem Leben.
A masterful page-turner brimming with secrets, traps, friendship, intrigue, pigeons, potions, loyalty, and explosions. The ending is dynamic and rewarding, with just the right blend of the fantastical and realistic. There's a cult slowly picking off the masters in the guild, so Christopher's master leaves him a series of clues and codes to track down the killers. In his stunning debut novel, Kevin Sands brings readers on a heart-stopping adventure rich with suspense, mystery, and unforgettable characters. Overall This book punched me in the face with feels.
