drey's thoughts:
I picked up Steelflower for my nook because it was on sale, and I'm enjoying Lilith Saintcrow's Jill Kismet series.

Anyway. Steelflower tells the story of Kaia Steelflower, who was shunned at five, ran away at sixteen, and has built up quite the reputation for herself. Then one day she picks the pocket of a red-haired barbarian, and life as she knows it starts going downhill from there. Of course, "downhill" is all a matter of perspective...

Eventually finding herself saddled with the barbarian, a prince who happens to be her twinned soul, an eight-year-old thief, and a minstrel, among others, she travels to find an old acquaintance who just happens to be readying for civil war, and wants her by his side. But is everything on the up and up?

I like Kaia's companions, I like their banter, and I really like how she deals with changing realities. Even if it is pretty predictable--main character has issues, main character gathers followers, main character and followers go on an adventure and find some bad guys--let's just say I want more, shall we? Unfortunately, the next book isn't out yet. :-(
