Release Date: 08/11/13
The Empire has declared war on the small, were-ruled kingdom of Aydori, capturing five women of the Mage-Pack, including the wife of the were Pack-leader. With the Pack off defending the border, it falls to Mirian Maylin and Tomas Hagen - she a low-level mage, he younger brother to the Pack-leader - to save them.
I'm a reader who loves a good fantasy story, they take you on a journey that not only delivers a solid kickass story but also gives the reader a tale that whilst appearing relatively straight forward has some wonderfully solid twists that go to show that what is originally perceived as a straight line, is often a long and complex road.
Here in this book by renowned UF author Tanya Huff is a story that brings out the spirit of man with the fantastical elements, whilst present, secondary to the characters development. Its well written, the prose sharp and when added to characters that you really want to spend time with gives the reader a magical outing. Add to this some great dialogue and all round I was a more than happy reader.
