Blurb (from Goodreads):
Omibus of Episodes 1-4.
Gabriella Hansforth has been a servant her entire life, paying off a debt she doesn't want, all so her twin sister can receive the education that she herself begged her parents for. Her sister didn’t want to learn the way she did.
After her parents die from a plague, her Nobleman master ships her off to the same school her sister resides at so that she can pay off her family’s debt working there. As one of the lowest servants, she doubts her life will become anything she wants it to be, but at least she has Amon, one of the higher servants, to dream about. A part of her hopes he feels the same way.
Nevertheless, her desire to learn still calls out to her even though she is forbidden to ever receive an education. Her parents made that choice for her. What will happen when she tries to impersonate a student, an act punishable by death without trial?
Set in the world of Gates.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
This was an interesting fantasy story, set on a planet near Earth.
I liked the characters in this book, although Gabriella took some unnecessary risks, and Koi was quite rude and entitled at times.
The storyline in this was about Gabriella, and her life as a servant. Her sister was being taught at the school, and Gabriella was working to pay off her family’s debts. Gabriella had aspirations to be able to read herself though, even if she knew that was never going to happen.
The ending to this was a little disappointing as the book just seemed to stop with little tied up at all.
