THIS IS NOT THAT BOOK. Be forewarned. THiS IS MUCH, MUCH BETTER. Evie Manieri has created an imaginative, complex and deep new world filled with three-dimensional characters who have magical powers, mysterious and noble pasts and ancestry, but at the same time have character flaws that threaten and sometimes utterly destroy the execution of their noble intentions. Any one of the main characters could be the Hero; it is fascinating to watch how many are defeated by their own flaws -- just like real people. It takes incredible insight into human nature to develop characters and relationships this complex yet so internally consistent. I found myself hoping against hope not only for the Shadari to win their freedom, but for each of these characters to rise above themselves. Some do, which is gratifying. But there are enough wild cards (Dramash, the Mongrel) to wonder just how it will go in the next book. I personally can’t wait to find out.
Thanks, Evie Manieri, for writing a book for people who want, every once in a while, to read a fantasy book with real characters. And by the way, I loved the battles. ☺

The setting was interesting and different, but not fully explored, the characters well fleshed out yet somehow left me a little cold, the plot possessing promise but feeling like it rather kept well within itself. The idea of the imperial swords was the crux of why everyone was there, yet barely used let alone any fun had with it. The book was set in a city-state overshadowed by a huge temple-fortress, yet only a handful of people mattered in the city and the Norlanders garrison - an interesting race that again felt under-explored - was reduced to a squabbling family with one or two additions. The magic was rather under-used, and despite contact between the cold and warm races burning skin right from the start, it wasn't clear how sex worked under those circumstance! And with all squabbling and lies, I just didn't care a lot about the characters which, given the plot was a bit too small and plain for what I wanted, meant it fell a bit flat.
Looking up all that sounds like I hated it, and I didn't at all, it just didn't quite work for me.
Anyway great book, highly recommended!!
