When Laedron Telpist’s sorcery training is interrupted by a knock on the door, what once seemed a proper profession must now be hidden. In a world where priests and mages vie for the limitless power of the elements and a new Grand Vicar has sworn death to all sorcerers, Laedron is tossed into a nightmare which would see his destruction at every turn.
From the home shores in western Sorbia, through the Cael’Brilland heartlands, and even across the seas to the great city of Azura, Laedron finds himself embracing old friends, consorting with unlikely allies, and confronting potent enemies. As he struggles to train himself in spellcraft, Laedron must face that he lives in a time when the utterance of a simple spell could be the signature on his death warrant.
I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to other people.
There are some things that I would love to change. I would have liked to see more of Lae’s Ma and sister in the book. I am sure that they both show up in the other books, but I would have loved to have seen more of them in this one.
The slaying of Madam Ismerelda. There was so much that she could have given in the book. Of course, her being killed in front of Lae set the tone for the rest of the book, and it made Lae into the person/mage he was.
