Book Description

The Empire is vast, ancient, cultured, powerful--and in deadly peril, from enemies without and within. The luxury-loving court ignores all signs of danger, consumed by corruption and treachery.

Exiled to a deserted border outpost, swordnoble Ronne tes Arhi is powerless to intervene. While her food supplies dwindle, she waits for the end -- until she finds a dying barbarian warrior, outcast from his people. Thinking it will never be discovered, Ronne gives him shelter. But then the man's mortal injuries miraculously heal....

With the aid of the barbarian, Erith, Ronne discovers the Empire was betrayed -- and its enemies have awoken a malevolent magic long absent from the world. Ronne, Erith, and the few remaining loyal soldiers of the Empire will need all their battle-tested skills -- and trust in their own new-found magic -- to fight the evil and keep their people free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book December 19, 2011
By Volpot
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a really good book.

It tells the story of an exiled barbarian (think Native American -type) who, contrary to law and custom, has his life saved by an enigmatic woman warrior from an advanced civilization (think feudal Japan or medieval China with both male and female warriors). The two then embark on a near-hopeless mission to save her homeland and civilization from destruction by a demon-inspired civil war.

I enjoyed everything about this book.

The world the author has built is unique and very compelling. The clashes of culture, from the opening scenes where the barbarian and woman warrior can barely communicate due to their differing world views, to the constraints placed on both when they return to the warrior's homeland are just one of many aspects of the book I enjoyed. Equally interesting is the development throughout the book of the back-stories of these cultures, the "magic" system (such as exists), and the unfolding of the history of the world that predates the cultures of the present era and that is influencing the conflict that now has arisen.

The book moves at a brisk pace throughout; no dull moments here. Yet it does so in a way that is logical and unrushed and not at the expense of character development. While this is not a strictly military-focused fantasy novel, the descriptions of combat, both by individuals and massed armies are well presented.

Speaking of character development, in my opinion it is likewise excellent. The two primary characters are fleshed out nicely. We understand their motivations. Neither of the primary characters is infallible. Neither is a Mary Sue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action and intrique in just the right doses December 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sabrina Chase had a great debut with The Last Mage Guardian and has shown with this book that it was no fluke. She has created a believable world with characters that a reader can care about. Her action sequences move at a quick pace but are as well-crafted as her character portraits. With two books under her belt she has moved solidly into the must-read category.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocking good fantasy! December 13, 2011
By B Way
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fine adventure, where the main characters have strength and honor, with enough battles and magic to satisfy my need for sword and sorcery. I hope the characters appear again, as I see the potential for more epic battles and adventures. Oh, and I really want a snowtiger of my own!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another page-turner from Ms. Chase December 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love and duty spar within the larger arena of good and evil.

With her second excellent work, Ms. Chase has earned a spot on my list of "must-buy" authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, recommended fully! December 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading "The Last Mage Guardian," I had no problems ordering this book for Kindle as soon as it appeared. I am currently on chapter 11, and it is a rollicking great read so far. Get it, read it, share it. This author deserves our support. Can't wait for her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read January 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was well written and the story kept me involved to the very end. I appreciate that it was not part of a series. It has an ending all it's own. I don't like reviews that give away the story line, but I do purchase books according to stars given and reviews in general. So yes, I recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner by Sabrina Chase January 25, 2014
By GWf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read her sci-fi trilogy, and two fantasy novels; they were all excellent, with some neat, unique elements. This one is no exception. It revolves around two people from different cultures, and its cool how the author shows their different mind sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Human Wave Fantasy
This is great Human Wave fantasy. As a general rule I prefer science fiction to fantasy, and most fantasy I read is by authors who also write SF that I have read and liked. Read more
