The two Sorcerer Adepts, "adept" being my word to describe their status, are left a bit more ambiguous, but shouldn't Sorcerers retain their mystery? It takes time to discover whether Zhravig is sarcastic and unbending just because he can be or because there's a greater need for it, but Asmode's avarice does shine through so you know he's a villain from the first, with the depth of his villainy left to be discovered as you read on.
The workings of Hertha's Temple are defined by the characters within, the high priestess, Mother Sophya most prominent among them; and the squabbling and jockeying for position among Vhulf and the other Heirs-in-flesh to the Danaan, the land's ruler, figure nicely into the mix, as well.
Michaele Jordan also excels in the voices of her novels. In Mirror Maze, she spoke as a writer in Victorian England. In Blade Light, she speaks as the writer of a fantasy quest. She's able to do both very well. As for her dialogue, you could close your eyes as someone read it in a monotone and know which character is speaking. The dialogue and the action serve as the main vehicles for carrying the story forward, which is as it should be.
I wish that Amazon would give us a rating range with gradations between the digits. I was forced to give this book a 4, when I'd give it a 4.9 only because the one thing I found missing in the book was a clear, focused theme. Why were we being told this story? The good news is that it does finally become clear, and everything up until that point is a fun, fast read, so if you're into fantasy novels with interesting characters, I'd recommend Blade Light!
