Book Description

As the Jaegal Empire moves to war against the city-state of Apsia, an unknown player begins to manipulate events, and long-hidden secrets come to light that threaten not only the outcome of the war, but also the fabric of reality itself.

Erlandr, the sorcerer who longs to die and cannot, searches for the truth of his past while being guarded by his once friend Adence. The priestess Irwa seeks to conceal her past as she draws closer and closer to the man she has been sent to assassinate. Joaquim, son of a ruined merchant, is driven to smuggling--and worse--to shore up the family fortune. And Dag, once a killer for hire, has been drawn out of retirement for one last job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stimulating Read June 24, 2011
By Kayde
Format:Kindle Edition
The best part about this book was that it jumped right into the story line. You don't have to endure any chapters where nothing happens; you are thrown right into the chaos. The author is wonderfully descriptive without bogging the story down by going off on tangents about the characters surroundings. There is a perfect balance of explanation and action although this is one book that could have definitely benefited from a dictionary at the end! The author weaves in his own world of sorcery, using his own made-up terminology, which can be quite confusing. You are not handed an explanation, you must slowly unravel the true story as you read, challenging the reader just as the characters in the book are challenged to discover the truth of what is happening in their world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! June 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've ended up reading this book twice so far... It's a great fantasy novel with complex characters, an intricate world, and many unexpected twists. The reader is definitely drawn into the story. One of the best things about the book is the author dumps directly into the world, no easy introduction, and you slowly unravel all of the complexities. While this book is standalone, the world itself is ripe for expansion in sequels or related novels.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious August 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I finally finished reading this book, after taking several breaks by reading other short stories. I have read a lot of fantasy, and that is just not a good sign. Yes, you are thrown into the action right away, but the characters are so flat that there is nothing to keep you interested in reading the book. I didn't find myself interested in any one character until over halfway through. The plot is very convoluted and at the end you still don't feel like you have any satisfactory answers for the motivations behind all of the characters' actions. The writing, while not good, is not bad. There were a few missing words and a few extraneous words here or there, but not enough to be totally distracting. The magic structure seems pretty good, but there's not enough groundwork laid for you to fully grasp the rules of magic in this world, so you don't know if the author is consistent or not. At the end, there are still a number of dangling plot lines, but I'm just not interested enough to want to find out what happens in a sequel. I can count the number of books I haven't finished on one hand - and I have 10 bookcases in my home, plus my IPad. I forced myself to finish this one and, now that I'm done, I wonder why I bothered

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Worth Reading For Free September 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As the title indicates, I "purchased" the Kindle version for free. I've read several free books since I got my Kindle, and this was definitely the best of the fiction bunch. It isn't perfect, but I found it more engaging and less predictable than most. The characters made me want to discover their fate, and I thought the magic system was interesting. I will definitely consider reading a sequel, should one exist.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay but tough to follow December 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There was a lot going on in this story, with several mini plots and moe than one protagonist. Overall, central idea of the story was good.
