The book is written in third person narrative following Maegwin and Rovann. Maegwin is the last priestess after an attack on her temple, leaving all her sisters dead. Maegwin is out for revenge. Her mind is in conflict between good and evil (mercy and revenge.) Rovann, the First Mage, takes Maegwin to the capital whereupon they learn and gain proof of the evil mage that threatens the land. Rovann is not your pure hero and suffers guilt of his own. Trust is very thin between these two characters. As you can tell, the characters were well developed and multi-dimensional.
The plot is fast paced, going from one adventure to another. Jumping realms and trying to stop and fight evil mages and their supporters are all part of the story. The plot kept my interest and moved at a nice pace. Two things that I found lacking in the plot were:
One, the idea behind the rebels and king's supporters was not fully explained in this book. I almost forgot about it until it was mentioned later in the story.
Two, the ending was abrupt for me. It seemed like an end of a chapter rather than the book. I didn't feel that the main problems were resolved for this book, and it was left off at part of the climax. I understand it is the first book in a series, but each book should have its own resolution while leaving room for the next story.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. I would have given it 4 stars if it wasn't for the abrupt ending. Hence, I would rate it at a 3.5 stars out of 5. If you like fantasy adventure and complex characters, you might want to try this book out.
This is exactly the kind of fantasy novel I love--strong but mysterious characters who must work together in the toughest of circumstances. Can goodness and the Elements overcome the power of Chaos? Maegwin de Romily (Sho-La Priestess) and Rovann de Lacey (his majesty's First Mage) both have hidden pasts and mixed motivations and abilities. They find themselves fighting against Lord Cedric Hounsey and his army and the mysteriously powerful dark mage the Songmaker to protect the king, rescue the kidnapped prince, and exact revenge for the destruction of the sisterhood of Sho-La. Immerse yourself in a tale of angels, principalities, and powers as the battle rages to tear the barrier between death and life.
