Ranira, an innkeeper's servant in the repressive city of Drinn, has feared magic ever since her parents were burned as witches. But she must use her innate spellcasting talents to assist a healer and two mercenaries in their struggle against the dark priests of Chaldon.

This novel was a quick, somewhat enjoyable read marred by slow plotting, an abrupt ending and inconsistent rules of magic. What the characters could achieve through spellcasting changed according to their needs; they never faced perils magic could not eventually get them out of.

I liked it, as with all of Wrede's books. Just wish she'd write more.

A quick light read much in line with many magic fantasy books. Well fleshed characters. Enjoyable.
