"A tale of loyalty, treachery, and love.... The author’s large readership as well as lovers of epic fantasy should enjoy this stand-alone prequel." — Library Journal, Starred Review
"Rawn weaves a rich tapestry of war, magic, and relationships in this historical fantasy prequel to 1996's The Golden Key.... Rawn at her best remains a mesmerizing writer." — Publishers Weekly
"Superb.... This book is a prequel to The Golden Key (1996) yet stands on its own merits and will delight anyone who enjoys reading about chivalry, the Middle East, and a genetic mutation that allows some to harness magic in ways that are carefully guarded." — Booklist
"Melanie Rawn is an amazingly talented writer who is capable of some of the most direct and clearest fantasy writing I've had the pleasure of reading in quite some time." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer

For those who love Melanie Rawn this book is not a let down. For those who adored The Golden like me this book is a must. Sometimes there are portents alluding to the future for those who have read ahead and sometimes there are just similarities that tickle the pleasure nerve :)
the story is complex, but that is what rawn is known for. this is essentially three stories in one. i had not read The Golden Key previously, and had no difficulty following the story. it is satisfiying in and of itself; no cliff hanger ending. it does seem to allude to The Golden Key, and i am now eager to read that, once it comes out on kindle.
there is humor, drama, tragedy, magic, love, sacrifice, and grand hubris. the characters are well developed, with flaws and strengths. the story is highly entertaining. i definitely recommend this!
