Friday Memes: Silver on the Road by Laura Anne Gilman

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Beginning:
Izzy leaned against the railing and watched the sun rise over the far end of town. Flood wasn't much to look at, she'd admit.
Friday 56:
"Watch what I do," Gabriel said then, and kneed his horse into a gentle trot, leaving her behind. She kneed her own mare into a faster walk, careful to stay well behind him, the mule still bringing up the rear, more cautious than its cousins or their riders.
This week I am reading Silver on the Road by Laura Anne Gilman. Here is the description from Amazon:
A heroic fantasy by an award-winning author about a young woman who is trained in the art of the sinister hand of magic, but at what price?

Isobel, upon her sixteenth birthday, makes the choice to work for the devil in his territory west of the Mississippi. But this is not the devil you know. This is a being who deals fairly with immense—but not unlimited—power, who offers opportunities to people who want to make a deal, and they always get what they deserve. But his land is a wild west that needs a human touch, and that’s where Izzy comes in. Inadvertently trained by him to see the clues in and manipulations of human desire, Izzy is raised to be his left hand and travel circuit through the territory. As we all know, where there is magic there is chaos…and death.
