This was an Awesome book. First in a series, and I intend to read the rest of them. I believe theres 3 more.
The characters are great, you want to find out whats going to happen to them. It has Everything and a lot more, adventure, romance, and magic. I really can't wait to read the rest.
I just loved this book and the entire series!! The characters just come alive for me with each page and chapter.. and they get even more in depth with each book in the series!
from the back cover...
To the city of Nexis, where Magefolk in their whitewalled towers rule eneasily over a restive race of Mortals, a young girl comes to learn the magic arts. Aurian, a quicksilver swordswoman, has inherited Earth-magic from her mother and FIre magic from her father. Unawakened within her lie far greater powers, coveted by the Archmage Miathan, who intends to possess her. But Aurian bravely flouts the Mages Code and takes a mortal lover.
Maddened by rage and jealousy, the corrupt Archmage schemes to destroy her, unleashing cataclysmic forces from a lost age. Aurian is the only Mage strong enough to oppose Miathan, but to do so she must take up foridden weapons of long lost magic, at grave peril of her own destruction...or the annihilation of her very world..
Excellent fantasy: sword and sorcery from a fine author.
This is book 1 in the series. I have all four books listed--or did at the time of this listing.
