Explores "a world in which cataclysmic events have left the Autarchy of Aygrima--the one land blessed with magical resources--cut off from its former trading partners across the waters, not knowing if any of those distant peoples still live. Yet under the rule of the Autarch, Aygrima survives. And thanks to the creation of the Masks and the vigilance of the Autarch's Watchers, no one can threaten the security of the empire"--Dust jacket flap.

DNF. I wasn't even halfway through the book when it struck me how rather passive the protagonist was. It made some degree of sense, as new situations were washing over her rapidly without much time to adapt, strategize, and... that's the issue. Events happened to her, but she wasn't quite present due to the trauma bearing down like a bludgeon. She she didn't seem engaged in her own life. A checked-out character isn't a captivating, compelling one. Also, much ado about physical appearance. Again, contextually sensical, but tiresome nonetheless (although this might appeal to teen readers who recognize something of their daily concerns there). Life is too short for unsatisfying books.
