Editorial Review – Sieging Manganela

 

Title: Sieging Manganela

Author: Charon Dunn

Genre: YA Science Fiction

Sieging Manganela is a prequel in terms of chronology, but it can easily be read by itself.

They’re supposed to be enemies, but he helps her get an injured friend out of danger and away from the war. Still, he’s loyal to his side. He reports back on what happened and helps lay a trap for anyone else who might come out of the city—and then attacks one of Zeffany’s fellow citizens when he was all-too-ready to press unwanted attentions on her.
