    A Pleasant SurpriseFull disclosure I received a free electronic copy of this book for review through Library Thing's Member Giveaways programFilled with runic metals from the Time Before the Rune Yard the center of Kyria's existence so tantalizingly close yet still beyond her reach is a place of mystery Peril Taboos and dark magic When she was just ten years old a man died in the yard; Kyria watched the other workers carry his lifeless body out on an improvised stretcher When she was sixteen Kyria burrowed under the fence separating the Yard from the ramshackle house occupied by her family; once inside she had a near death experience of her own All her life she's felt a strong connection to the Rune Yard Sometimes Kyria can even hear it whispering to her Yet until that fateful night when the metals came crashing down on her Kyria's parents forbid her from working in the Yard or even entering it After that brush with death Kyria's father decided it would be best to train the headstrong young girl to run the Yard since it was clear that she'd find her way in anyway Kryia and her family father Frawn and mother Santha are treated like pariahs for their work with these artifacts of a society long since collapsed But this doesn't stop scavengers from bringing them runic metals for trade or customers paying the Rune Yard laborers to handle sheets of ancient metal as needed Nor does it deter the so called tax collectors from sueezing them of their profits For protection they say The Rune Yard is a dangerous place But not uite as dangerous as the world outsideOne awful day the bandits ride in from Groandel to raise the Rune Yard's taxes An argument escalates uickly among the armed men and Frawn is murdered in a shootout Kyria manages to escape to the safety of the Yard which even the bandits dare not enter but her mother is kidnapped in Kyria's place Kyria makes a promise to her dead father as she labors and then mourns over his shallow graveI will find the banditsThey will payI will find their leaderHe will sufferI will find my motherI will free herWith no small amount of help from a rune mind named Haylem he lives under the Yard yo Kyria travels to Groandel where she takes on a local scourge known as the Hex and Star A delightful blend of science fiction and fantasy The Girl from the Rune Yard is a fun if sometimes harrowing story about a spunky young heroine who uite reminds me of Lyra Silvertongue from Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials; best series ever Brave but foolhardy Kyria is a curious girl with a hungry mind The only way to stop her from endangering herself in the Rune Yard Frawn realizes is to allow her inside Maybe you should teach me if you want me to stop being ignorant she scolds Frawn after nearly dying in the Yard And yet It didn't seem like Kyria's voice matured all that much between the ages of ten and seventeen I had trouble distinguishing teenage Kyria from child Kyria and thus often found myself picturing her as a precocious twelve year old throughout most of the story Then again Kyria has led a rather isolated life so perhaps her naivety is easily explained by her upbringingThe only thing I didn't much care for is Mikken a security guard who accosts Kyria upon her entrance into the city attempts to monopolize her time and then upon hearing her sad tale won't take no for an answer when she declines his help He disappears from the story rather abruptly when Kryia knocks him out with her rune blaster but I've a sneaking suspicion that we'll see of him in later installations I think Mikken is meant to be a well meaning likable guy but he feels like such a uintessential Nice Guy that he immediately made my stomach turn When a lady's on a mission of vengeance the last thing she wants to do is fend off your romantic overtures mkay?Anyway the material is pretty tame; rape is hinted at as a possibility but never comes to pass Despite the seemingly grave nature of Kyria's business she only murders one person this ain't no Kill Bill and she and Haylem spend time discussing the ethics of revenge killings than shedding blood At just 139 pages The Girl from the Rune Yard is a shortish read that moves along at a steady clip Plus there's a pretty excellent cliffhanger that will leave you wanting
