These characters actually seem to breathe
November 16, 2011
While the intrigue encompasses all of them, the
character you become rivetted to is definitely Klast. Men admire him,
women fall in love with him. He has his own version of morality. He is a
spy who will do what is required of him, but he dislikes killing, and
must believe it necessary. He has a gentle and loving inner core, well
hidden, and a talent for almost disappearing in plain sight when he
needs to observe a situation or guard his Lord. I finished the last page
knowing I wanted to read the second book in the trilogy.
From the Back Cover
Back From Chaos back cover blurb:
Klast, loner, assassin and spy, has no idea that his destiny
is linked to the maid he is sent to rescue. But even before he can fulfill it he
must wrestle with his own demons, and help Lord Gaelen unmask a traitor. Failure
will upset the Balance that Earth, goddess, needs to provide good harvests,
health and peace.
Earth has shown Liethis,
true seer, that unless Klast completes his missions, more catastrophes, like
the Red Fever that ravages the population, will follow. Time is short.
