First book in a new series by Anne Bishop. Not as dark as the Black Jewels trilogy, but still good. New world, villians not quiet as twisted as in her other books, sort of an Spanish Inquisition type of situation.
This book, with its mix of Hitler-like villain & Greek mythology (well, actually technically Roman because of the names...) is still an entertaining re-read - especially since I remember so little of this trilogy. This first tale does have a satisfying conclusion unlike many first parts of trilogies.
