The whole idea that someone can rewrite your will to suit their needs is terrifying. In the last Minister Knights novel,
the protagonist Sarah's little sister, Amana, had her will destroyed so that she could become an undead sorcerer's
Amana is not the first being to have been controlled by this undead sorcerer. The Undead sorcerer, Manola, was
revealed to be controlling the merchant who sold souls in the first novel. Manola's specialty is to not only steal souls, but
to take people's wills away from them. The character whose eyes we investigate Veloris with was actually first
a lover of the accomplished Minister Knight soldier ZyKeiah. The woman's name was Akub, but now she is referred to
as Akub the Devourer because of the evil acts she committed while under Manola's control.
Now she is certain she needs to save Queen Zoe. Since her freedom from Manola, she has recieved many prophetic
visions. How will she save Queen Zoe from Manola? Well, she figures if she steals Zoe's soul first, she can save the entire
kingdom. What could possibly go wrong with this plan?
The once idolized community of Veloris is put under the scrutiny of a stranger, who sees Queen Zoe's oracle
explain that "perhaps the Goddess wants your family to step down from ruling". Manola is not only after Queen Zoe: she
intends to start a civil war. A civil war can only be possible if there are enough people dissatisfied with how the place is
goverened to wish to fight one.
And Manola isn't quite done with Amana, either...
This novel has greater depth about Veloris and much richer character developent. I am a sucker for deeper
character development. I deeply enjoyed getting to know Akub, a woman who feels the burning shame of being
a monster against her own will and separated from her true love forever. I adored getting to know ZyKeiah.
If you liked the first novel in the series, you will adore this one! Buy it to read as soon as you can.
This tale is gorgeous. Kurtz's characters are interesting, fully realized people whose conflicting motivations and loyalties give a phenomenal tension to the story of love, betrayal, redemption, and family. The interaction between Akub and the minister knight Zykieah was engaging, and Kurtz's descriptive prose is breathtaking.
I'm looking forward to reading more of Kurtz's Minister Knights!
