Absolutely awesome story!!! I loved every page and I can hardly wait until the next book in the series, Her Knights Quest, is out! I haven't read a lot of fantasy, though I'm beginning to, and this story kept my attention all the way through keeping me up way too late to get to the end. I love Alexis Morgan's writing style and have loved all her paranormal romance books. I'm so happy she's branched off and decided to add fantasy.

The Damned are warriors who can be called to fight a cause that the Gods who have imprisoned these men see worthy and will allow them to be called forth. Each warrior also has the aide of an avatar, an animal that resides on their shield. The warriors are damned to spend eternity, or however long the gods will it, beneath a river and once they are released to roam the earth, they have only 3 months in which to complete whatever quest they've been called upon to do. In all the times they've been called before, they were always called by men and they did their job and returned to the river to be judged. This time, they are called by a woman, Merewen... a woman with special powers... and they soon find that the challenge they are facing is no simple matter of just taking back Merewen's family keep from her evil uncle, Fagan. Even though they must eventually defeat Fagan, there is much darker magic at work and they hope they don't run out of time before the dark magic takes over all of Agathia.

I love every one of the Damned! Gideon, the Captain, is really the main focus in this first book, but Alexis shows us that all the other Damned are affected by the people of this land. I can't wait to learn more about each warrior, especially, Kane, the dark. And Alexis didn't disappoint with the balance between action and love interests. Alexis writes some of the most beautiful love scenes EVER! Whether it's just a kiss, the first teasing touches of foreplay or a quick moment of passion hidden away in a clearing, each is full of romantic tension and love.

    Morgan's "My Lady Mage" is an entertaining, though very light weight, fantasy romance. The characters are interesting, and I love the bantering between the Damned. However, Morgan's worldbuilding is negligable; this is a very generic fantasy world, with nothing to distinguish it from most of the other fantasy worlds out there. I will probably stick around for the next book in the series, but, if it cannot hold my interest, I will not bother with the rest.

    “My Lady Mage” by, Alexis Morgan “My lady mag

    “My Lady Mage” by, Alexis Morgan

    “My lady mage” is a wonderful example of romance mixed with fantasy. Merewen is a young lady who by rights should be ruling over her keep and her people in the land of Agathia. She was born with a magic that connects her to the finest horses in the land. By using this magic she ensures that her home and people are able to live and make money. However, when her father dies, her uncle Fagan comes to the keep and takes control of Merewen and her people. Fagan is a cruel and wicked man who cares only for himself and power.
    After being abused by both her uncle and his men Merewen and her people have become desperate. Merewen finds an ancient spell to summon the five warriors of the river and decides to call on them for help. The gods hear her plea and because of the pureness of her heart they grant her request. (Enter the warriors)
    Gideon- Captain of the warriors, he is strong and honorable.
    Kane-Touched by dark magic, he is dedicated to the other warriors but he has a dangerous side.
    Murdoch-Haunted by his past, he is a good fighter and defender of those who are weak.
    Duncan-Like the other warriors he is a good fighter but his real love is books and learning.
    Averel-He is the youngest and most lighthearted of the group.
    “My lady mage” is first and foremost a lovely romance between Merewen and Gideon but it’s packed with so much more. The author paints a beautifully wild midieval style world for the readers to explore and enjoy. This story also has enough darkness and mystery woven through it to captivate everyone. I loved the warriors in this book, they were fierce and chivalrous, and I can’t wait to read the rest of their stories. For me, the brightest parts of this story were Merewen and Alina (Fagan’s wife). These two women weren’t your typical waifish girls; they were smart and determined to survive the darkness that surrounded them.
    I have so much more that I would like to say but I don’t want to give everything away. I own all of Alexis Morgan’s books and “My lady mage” is a great addition to my collection. This is the start of the warriors of the mist series and I can’t wait to read the rest. The second installment will be out in March 2013 and it will be called “Her knight’s quest”.
