Ageless peers beyond the mortal horizon, opening the door to comprehension of that which has been called magic or myth. An orphaned girl with the potential to unravel the greater meaning of existence is manipulated, tortured, abused, and forced to kill. Worst of all, she's coerced into formulating the means of reducing the entire human race to a state of abject slavery, a bondage as inescapable as one's own biological processes. It's possible for a runaway to defeat chains, flee pursuing hounds, and disappear into the places unfit for civilization. It's impossible to elude the inexorable death of a body turned against itself.
The girl finds a way to free herself, with the help of fellow warriors who have already realized their potential and can help her nurture her own power. This band of Ageless, immortals who exist unseen in the mists at the fringes of reality, must find the means to defeat the One World League and their misanthropic drive to dominate all of mankind for their own benefit. Otherwise, life with freedom of thought and self-determination will cease to exist. They have the power and the determination, but will it be enough?
Ageless blends existential horror, fatalistic humor, cutting-edge science, and a compelling conflict that moves with urgent grace. And in these times of over-reaching government and cronyism, something more - a warning. Read it and you will know.
I can't recommend this book highly enough.
The story follows the course of heroine Jihanna's coming into power as a tech mage, something that has never been encountered before and something that happened as a result of unspeakable torture. In escaping from her tormentor, Jihanna joins up with a group of independent warriors, already the masters of their own powers, and now she must evade the clutches of an evil government. She must find a way to fight back, for if she does not, the world will end.
This is a book I can see myself re-reading many times, possibly until it falls apart, as there is so much that is wonderful between the pages. I can't wait for the next installment.
