Overview

Twins Kestrel and Bowman risked their lives to restore the key to the wind singer. Now, five years later, the people of Aramanth are finally free of the Morah, the evil power that controlled them for generations. But with the new kindness has come weakness, and Aramanth lies undefended -- unable to resist an attack by soldiers from a distant land. The city is burned to the ground, and its people driven off as slaves. During the invasion, the twins are separated for the first time in their lives. Bowman becomes a slave of the Mastery, a city where the rulers live in luxury and beauty. Kestrel escapes, then sets off to avenge the enslavement of her family. As the twins embark on their parallel adventures, their mother's prophetic dreams reveal their dangerous fate. Bowman's mind power and Kestrel's fierce spirit are soon joined again to fight for the freedom of their people. As they plan to destroy the Mastery, however, they must also face again the evil Morah.

The book The Slaves of the Mastery is a very exciting and gripping novel. The story takes place manly in the Mastery and on the road. After five years of peace, Marius Ortiz destroys the city of Aramanth. Ortiz takes all of the survivors as captives, but Kess Hath. The slaves are marched to the Mastery. Once at work in the Mastery, bowman, Kess's sister, discovers that everybody except for the Master are slaves. After Kess faints following Bowman, she faints and saved by the Johilda. Sisi, a who is a princess, soon becomes friends with Kess. Sisi is going to marry Ortiz, and Kess and Bowman are both accompanying the bride and groom. Ortiz falls in love with Kess at the weedding, and Sisi with Bowman. The marriage is at the Mastery, however the Johilda and Bowman destroy the Mastery, freeing everybody. Ira Hath, a prophet, says that they must return to their homeland. Most people don't go to the unknown homeland, but a pack of people do. The story continues in Firesong. I really enjoyed this book. I think that Bowman's character was fantastically written. Sisi was also stuck up, which I enjoyed. Finally, I think the setting was a good place for an adventurous novel. There are also some negatives to this book. I thought that there should be more Mumpo. Pinpin, Kess's sister, was not mentioned much, which I did not like. This book is in 3rd person point of view. The author describes events well, except for the fighting of the manaxa. The author is repetive in words such as said. I would recommend this book, as it is exciting and hooking. I wouldn't recommend this book to people to have not read The Wind Singer, because it would be too confusing. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a short read, because it was so hooking that I read in one day! Some similar novels are The Wind Singer, Firesong, and the Conch Bearer. I would recommend these books because The Wind Singer an Firesong are the prequel and sequel of Slaves of the Mastery. The Conch Bearer is about a man who has a conch and makes a journey while returning it. These are all great books.

This book is such a wonderful example of the importance of freedom, friendship, and adventure. It took me but 4 hours to read!! This book is about the twins, Kestrel and Bowman Hath, a few years after the Windsinger's voice was returned. The city is prospering, but unaware of the vile Mastery, were EVERYONE is a slave. This book has so many twists and turns, and the ending is a complete introduction to Firesong. I reccomend that anyone who wants a touch of adventure, suspense, and romance, should read this book 'and the rest of the series'.

This book was extremely good but I did one very stupid thing I started the book right before I went on a week long trip with my friends and family. BLEH!!!! But the trip was well worth it even though I nearly died without being able to read. So on the near 12 hour ride home I finished Slaves of the Mastery.

This book is filled with action, excitement, and passion! The story moves in such a way that I couldn't put it down. The Hath twins learn more about their destiny and their people's destiny as the life they once knew is destroyed! Nicholson does a wonderful job of creating characters with depth and feeling!

I was looking for a book to read, and happened to come across this one. It is a super good book about slaves that are forced into slavery, because Ortiz comes and burns there home, Aramanth. The Hath family, the main family, has uniqueness in them which helps them escape Mastery, the name of the city. I couldn't put it down, because I couldn't wait to know what happened next. This is now my favorite book. I read this book before the first one, and understood it all. I look forward to reading the first book.

This book was as good if not better than the first! I was so excited when I found out that it was finally out. I had been waiting for it for a number of months after reading the first book, but after searching long and hard found out that the writer didn't come out with the second book yet. So the other day I was in borders and I was looking around for a good book, when I came across Slaves of the Mastery. Finishing it in two days, it had proved once again to be one of the best books I've read. Since Nicholson has written so many movies, his books play out like movies, giving the same riveting detail the audience needs. And being a writer of the screen plays of Gladiator, and the First Knight, Nicholson wirtes the most thrilling scene when describing the manaxa, a gladiator type scene. Me being an action fantic, took this book, and listed it in my top favorites. Go Nicholson. If you ever are considering turning this into a movie, I look just like Krestel... or at least in my opinion!

This book was absolutly Amazing! I picked it up and could not put it down. The suspense and creativity of Nicholson has reached an all time high. If you love fantasy, this book is for you. Though you won't understand a word of it unless you read part 1. Watch out, J.K. Rowling!

There's nothing better than a good fantasy, and if you're looking for part two to one of the most amazing worlds in the genre, 'Slaves of the Mastery' is for you! I recently ordered this book from the UK, unable to wait until its release in the U.S. Ready for a sneak-peak? Armamanth has become a kinder place to live in. But after all the powerful city has gained, it begins to lose as well. It becomes weaker, more vulnerable. An attack on the city by the powerful Mastery leaves Armamanth burned to the ground - literaly. The entire Hath family is taken as slaves, including all that have survived the attack -except for Bowman's sister, Kestrel. She vows to desrtoy the man who did this, and isn't letting go of her vengence. In an unexpected twist of fate, this story of hope, suspencse, and a little bit of romance, takes the most surprising twist. You'll never guess if Kestrel ever makes it to the Mastery and frees her family, or if she finally destroys Ortiz, the man that ruined the great city of Armamanth. Worth your buy? You HAVE to read The Wing Singer first. You won't understand the second book if you don't. 'Slaves of the Mastery' also travels a bit slower than the previous book, so don't expect an edge-of-your seat read. But I thought the fortune in pounds I paid for shipping was defiantly worth an early look. Why? The continuing devolpent of Kestrel and Bowman becomes more and more intricate as they steadily grow further apart from the strong connection they once held. What happened to Armamanth under its new rule? Wondering how the Wind Singer held out after five years? Read 'Slaves of the Mastery'. It's certianly one of a great triliogy of novels.
