Teen Review– The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal

 

[Cover]

The Kingdom of Little Wounds was about two girls, Ava Bingen and Midi Sorte. The setting is the city of Skyggehavn, in Scandinavia, in 1572. Midi is a slave, working in the nursery, and is mute. Ava is from a lensmaker’s family and is working as a seamstress in the castle. The corrupted Lord Nicolas attempts to get both Ava and Midi to work for him, while planning to throw the queen off her throne.

I loved this book. The characters’ problems were my own, and the vivid descriptions made me feel like I was there, too… sometimes not a good thing in this book. I didn’t like the fact that there were a lot of explicit scenes, and that Lord Nicolas was so manipulative. King Christian was also blinded by love and failed to see the flaws in Lord Nicolas.

One thing I really liked about this book was that it gave me an understanding of what slaves and servants lived like.
