Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

Opening a new series, the author is preaching the gospel of the genre. There are loving touches of the
classics evident in the narrative’s every layer, from the political intrigue of Frank Herbert’s Dune to
the vigorously structured culture in Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern. The overarching theme
of the positive No. 7 versus the negative No. 9 lends Cannon’s world a cosmic drumbeat that the
characters dance to—and though it seems cloying at first, readers should grow to appreciate it as
essential to the author’s vast arrangement. After intensive (and successful) worldbuilding, Cannon
switches into thriller gear, and magical forensics factor in, as in the line “The energies from the duel
still whispered discord. Fierce energies had been flung across the room and had eventually slain his
father....Burned tapestries and melted stone showed how fierce the fight had been.” Characters possess
the vibrancy to add to, rather than vanish within, a complex plot. Melin, concerned about Briana, loses
his patience and asks the cool Sillik, “So are you bedding her or not?” And while a fantasy thriller
filled with secret sects of killers among the healers would be fabulous, Cannon doesn’t settle for that.
Sillik leaves Illicia to hunt for the king’s assassin, offering readers a broader scope. In the morally
dank city of Colum, for example, the prince meets Renee, a charismatic, though guarded, woman
battling injustice. Her appearance adds emotional depth to the finale while the epilogue is a triumph of
detailed maneuvering that should entice audiences back for the sequel.

A joyously embellished and tightly guided epic fantasy thriller.

Opening a new series, the author is preaching the gospel of the genre. There are loving touches of the classics evident in the narrative's every layer, from the political intrigue of Frank Herbert's Dune to the vigorously structured culture in Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern. The overarching theme of the positive No. 7 versus the negative No. 9 lends Cannon's world a cosmic drumbeat that the characters dance to--and though it seems cloying at first, readers should grow to appreciate it as essential to the author's vast arrangement. After intensive (and successful) worldbuilding, Cannon switches into thriller gear, and magical forensics factor in, as in the line "The energies from the duel still whispered discord. Fierce energies had been flung across the room and had eventually slain his father.... Burned tapestries and melted stone showed how fierce the fight had been." Characters possess the vibrancy to add to, rather than vanish within, a complex plot. Melin, concerned about Briana, loses his patience and asks the cool Sillik, "So are you bedding her or not?"
