I'm very glad to have discovered this series and this author. I've also found her books The Smoke-Scented Girland The God-Touched Man, plus The Summoned Mage (Convergence Book 1)/Convergence series quite enjoyable.
As I just noted, Abounding Might is book three in the series. It works much better in order, but also has the distinction of also allowing for a reader to get it out of order. Fair warning, the world of The Extraordinaries is considered to be already introduced and understood by this point.
So, this is Lady Daphne's story. It begins on a solemn low note for her. For all her powerful ability and her drive to be the best and have amazing adventures, she has a flaw. Well, two, but who's counting. Her physical handicap of fainting at the sight of blood gets an officer killed and has her, tail tucked between her legs, ignominiously packed off to India away from the battlefront to serve the Governor-General's wife.
Daphne isn't down for long and finds adventure and intrigue in an unexpected place. She wanted to wallow a bit, but her natural personality takes over and has her making a friend in a fellow female magic user, Bess, who is a 'Speaker' (she can broadcast thoughts into other minds and exchange thoughts with fellow Speakers). Daphne's own magic as an Extraordinaire Bounder (one who can travel between two points with just a thought or with effort carry others with her) gets her assigned to the attractive Captain Fletcher's unit along with her more mundane duties.
With Fletcher, who has a rather sensitive magic that allows him to know a person's emotions, she gets some of her own back. She is conflicted between shunning the attraction between them out of fear that she will lose out on future adventure or seeing love as its own adventure. But, the romance is often secondary to the conflicts around them. I enjoyed the suspense plot of figuring out who was fomenting the rebellion in the Indian province and how to stop them. Daphne, like the other heroines before her in the series, has some great action scenes and is a hero in her own right rescuing the men included.
The blends of history, romance, fantasy elements and even mystery make this a riveting story for action, but also has lovely depth and development for the heroine as she comes into her own. I can highly recommend the series even as I settle back to anticipate the next book's release.
