This fantasy was very intriguing to me. The lords were a bit of a mystery at first, it was unknown what creatures they truly are since they are able to take different forms. Also unknown is the full extent of their powers and if they just had special abilities or if they were truly evil. Through the eyes of one slave, the lords true nature is discovered. Since none of the characters had names throughout most of the story, I did have a little bit of a hard time keeping track of everyone. I was very grateful when the slaves began to name themselves as well as find a different title for themselves. This was one of my favorite parts of the story; after many of the slaves escape they have to figure out how to live on their own, figure out leadership and community without the rule of the lords. However, when the groups were on the run from the lords, the story did move a little slowly. Things picked back up again near the end and the true form of the lords are revealed.
