I think that this book was positively captivating it had action, mystery. After a few a few chapters of the book I was sucked in. It has perfect descriptions that arenít to heavy on the deatails. This show mages of High Magick wand magick with not much more than personal energy, Wild Magic with Mageprices and heavy personal costs, And even the cultivating Demon Magic that uses blood and pain for the price. All and all I loved this book and I would recommend it to anyone.

I'm a fairly recent Mercedes Lackey fan, I look for her books everytime I go bookshopping. This book, however, struck me as harder to enjoy than others. The plot is thick, which is good, and kept me guessing for most of the book (her ability to plot twist is fantastic).

Well, I must say that it was a pleasant relief and surprise to find a book that was a fast and enjoyable read - the kind where it was a genuine pleasure to move through the pages. Too often these days I find writers of modern "epic" fantasy are bogged down in detail and back-story that it becomes a drudging experience just to turn the pages. Reading should not be work!
