    Enjoyed more than I thought I would.

    The world created in this book is very interesting, and the writer still left a lot of mystery for the next book. I would like to find out more about this Overmind and what it' s powers and limits are. I also liked the mix of magic and technology...a hint of steampunk.

    I aslo liked the characters. I especially liked that not all of them were likable and good. They made mistakes, made really bad decisions' and were naive or selfish. Too many times fantasy book try to make everyone upstanding. I like the books with greys. Will continue this series for sure.

    A coming of age fantasy

    On the Veiled Isles, the eighteen year old daughter of affluent Faerlonnis Overlord the Magnifico Aureste Belandor, Jianna travels to the home of her fiancé Magnifico Tribarri. However, she never completes her journey; highwaymen capture the spoiled Jianna and take her to a rebel stronghold.

    Jianna quickly realizes she is prisoner to her Aunt Magnifico Onarto. Estranged from her brother the family patriarch, Onarto plans to use her niece to help her take control of the Berlandor fortune and to keep Aureste under her thumb. Though the teen hears horrible tales accusing her father of atrocities, she rejects them as she believes he is a kind person. Meanwhile only rebel sympathizer Falaste Rione the physician is nice to her. As she begins to see her privileged lifestyle though the eyes of the lower classes, Jianna reconsiders what she knows about life on the increasingly treacherous Veiled Isles.

    The key to the complex coming of age fantasy is the intricate society that is becoming unglued with one of the cornerstones (magic) beginning to fail. Jianna emulates the changes that are occurring to the veiled isles as open rebellion has begun. With a strong cast including the fully developed Brandon world, sub-genre readers will enjoy visiting the Veiled Isles.

    Unexpected and New

    I recently won the ARC of The Traitor's Daughter. The book is about a magical world with several races that aren't terribly set. The story follows four different people for the most part. It is somewhat like a Greek tragedy, where almost all things could be solved if only the characters had more information or arrived sooner. The characters are more believable than most, in that they all have faults. No one in this story is perfect, and that's what makes it great for me. I can easily tell that this tale will encompass all three books in the trilogy, as many questions were left unanswered. I am eagerly awaiting the next book, "The Ruined City."
