The Nightblade series follows the namesake, who regularly goes by the name Loren of the family Nelda. Who is the best. She's so wonderfully rounded, a balance of clever and naive, and the series watches her learn more and become more purposed in her actions. At first she's just sorta flailing about and her best moments are when she's pressed for quick decisions. The world is deep, and you get to experience just how far it reaches as Loren learns about it herself. There's a good mix of action with sneaking about, so no one would get too bored with any part of the story. The fifth book, Weremage, is the weakest entry in the series, but even that one is still pretty dang good.
Plus there's a lil' representation for everyone. It's awesome.
The magic seems like it'll be good but so far it's not defined at all. Wizards are apparently outlawed but there is at least one 'mystic' which appears to be highly regarded. Not sure if the next book(s) will define the magic system more (I hope so as I personally enjoy well defined magic systems rather than just 'they wave their hands and it works')
ok amount of action, some of which happens kind of around the main pov character rather than to her, or with her.
Good enough book that i'll pick up the next one to see how it goes.
The quest begins quickly and progresses through various obstacles slowly enough for the reader to follow them and quickly enough to keep the reader engaged and wanting more. I am eagerly awaiting reading more in this world. The author has me completely invested in learning what happens next to all five of the characters that we will continue to see in the continuation of Loren's story.
She meets a man on the run. Actually, he's being chased by the kings men, and he is a wizard. Xain promised to take her with him, if she helped him get away, then once on the road he abandoned her. She has no luck, save for the dagger she stole from her parents house.
She is picked up by a caravan, chased by the kings men and almost killed by a shapeshifter. Can things get any worse?? Of course. This is a different story than I usually read, however, it is interesting. The verse used is different, the characters strange, but enjoyable. I think I will continue to read the next book.
Read on my friends.
