The Trickster (A Tale of Rinland) is a fantastic coming-of-age novel by Dorothy A. Winsor. After her mother passed away, Dilly was a pickpocket on the streets and later became an attendant to Lady Elenia. Dilly learned about a plot that smugglers were hatching, involving the use of ale that was drugged. She decided to put an end to it. Fitch was an elf and had the power to influence people's emotions and thoughts to accomplish his goals. Fitch’s family was assisting the captain who was inciting a coup. Fitch wanted to help the people in Lac’s Holding and solve a mystery surrounding a loved one. When Dilly and Fitch first met, they realized that they both wanted to do what was right, even if it meant hurting the people they had come to consider as family.
The Trickster (A Tale of Rinland) is a captivating novel that takes place in a world of magic and medieval fantasy. It was fast-paced and packed with action. Dorothy A. Winsor created a world of magic, romance, and politics. The events were descriptive and easy to visualize. It was a page-turner, and I could not put it down. The characters were relatable and of them, my favorites were Dilly and Fitch. They had complicated backstories that constantly influenced the way that they tackled the challenges they faced. They trusted each other and what they believed to be just. They acted on their beliefs, even when it hurt their friends and family. The story is narrated excellently with fantastic role-players. It exceeded my expectations by far.
