I'm not good at writing reviews so I don't normally write them but I just had to on this one. The story was slow at first but the next thing I knew, I was so engrossed in the story I was looking for book #2 and was very disappointed when I didn't find it. When is book #2 coming out?

As a reader of high/ epic fantasy my expectations were high and yet I was pleasantly surprised by how beautifully complex and well thought out this storyline & plot was. Unknown author Dawn Peers creates a mesmerizing magical world like no other, with detailed histories of varying races and accounts of ages past make it incredibly credible. Entrenched within the storyline are age-old conflicts between races and vengeful thoughts on actions past, which hold much sway in regards to the direction that the storyline takes. `In the dying eyes of night' is the first installment within a planned series; `Graces of faded angels' whose compelling complexity is sure to maintain one's interest throughout and take your breath away.

Amid the fast-paced action and shocking drama is a cast of intriguing characters whose anxieties and triumphs, trials and tribulations capture your interest instantly. Once the plot takes hold it is extremely difficult to let go, as I lost myself within a dazzling world that is so vivid and `real' that I felt a part of it. This is a novel that is exceptionally well constructed and thought out, with the multiple POV's (points of view) seamlessly interconnecting so that you can loose yourself deeply within the tale. Many of the characters showed that one's strength comes from love, like for example with Idirin; whose broken heart and love for his daughter is touching. With a strong heroic main protagonist (Arroryn) alongside other feisty characters, I felt relaxed in the knowledge that I was reading something assured and fervent.

With great rulers fighting for supremacy and wronged thief's seeking atonement. Greedy and corrupted emissaries seeking solemnity, and a great nation and race of people putting right those wrongs that were put upon them ~ this is a mighty tale of magnificence.

The world building was subtle and spanned over the length of the book so it wasn't overwhelming. It tells a story of the Vaian, a long-living race pitted against humans. Not every Vaian is as cruel as the tales say, and the storyline conveys of how one person can overcome great odds to achieve the impossible.

Idirin is perhaps the most interesting character aside from Threneidir. His daughter Arroryn is a head strong woman brought up in thieves guild. She has to be cunning to survive the streets and she makes her mark several times over.

Threneidir is a heck of a bad guy. He was true to being the snake in the grass, even though at first I wondered if it were just rumors that gave the Vaian their reputation. I really enjoyed watching him unfold in the court and his influence on those around him.

The political intrigue surrounding the story could be a bit daunting at times, and stuttered the pacing for me. I did like the relationship between the princes and how it comes to a head and they have to make some big choices about each other and their futures. I also found the relationships within the thieves guild to be fun and entertaining. The camaraderie between the people in the guild was unwavering and was deeply felt whenever they were clustered in a group.

CONCLUSION

The pacing somethings drug on when it came to the chess game of court politics, but the guild was a great group to get to know. The characters were developed over time and it was neat to find out what else we could find out about them as the story progressed.

This is a difficult book to judge. It has a lot of promise and intrigue, it's more of a “set the stage” book than the intro to the world--the kind of story I expect from a prequel. It's a "look-back to see where our characters came from and what they did before", written as if we already knew who to root for and why the rules of the world are the way they are.
As the opening book for a series, it's lacking in that "hook" to draw us in. From the beginning, there's no primary character or point of view. The narrative bounces between a king who behaves like a spoiled child, his son who rebels with classic teenage drama, Threnedir the villain, Arroryn the thief, and her father Idirin. Prepare for VERY long paragraphs of narrative, broken up by far less dialogue than you might like.
The only character we really get to know well is the villain Threnedir, who is so blatantly “evil” and selfish he's almost a comic book villain. Threnedir seems to have no motive other than greed, envy, and a blind lust for power. It is stated several times that he wants to kill certain people to prevent them from threatening his power base. However, it is never explained why those peoples existence threaten him or how their deaths might help him.
This book needs to define its characters motivations, magic rules, and political system. Too much is left unsaid and undefined. The basic story and plot are good, the world is intriguing, and the story has lots of potential--just needs to be tightened up!
