A Brief Summary: After a tragic fire that killed that destroyed her childhood, Rae is taken to live with her aunt and uncle. Her parents history was left buried only to be unearthed when Rae is invited to attend Guilder, a prestigious boarding school that until this year was males only. Now she has to live down a legacy that she didn't even know that she had.
I really liked this story. You have a girl who has no idea of her history, but everyone else does. She's judged and feared because of her father. Now on the verge of getting her tatu (her power) she's treated as sort of an experiment.
The tatus themselves were really neat. Some are extraordinarily useful, whereas others are kind of so-so. When Rae discovers hers she decides to help everyone realize how special each tatu truly is.
I also liked the relationship dynamics in this story. None of them are forced so everything flows really well and feels very natural.
This was a part of the Arcane Forest Anthology that has the first books of several amazing series. If you're a fantasy lover I highly recommend checking it out.
