Overview

Fire Sorceress Draedreia Ashes is the most powerful person in all of the Twelve Kingdoms, but even she must bow to the wishes of the gods. When the Goddess Brigid summons Drae to serve her on the Other Side, Drae reluctantly leaves her home in Yoshan to travel through the Kingdoms giving humanitarian aid to those who need it so she can prove her worthiness to serve the Blessed Brigid. On her journey, she meets the runaway Prince Nori. Together they follow a crazed king on his mission to Ereshkigal where he seeks to waken the evil Goddess, the Morrigana, from her thousand year sleep. When Drae accidentally ends up releasing the Morrigana, she finds herself in a race against time to stop the Morrigana from destroying the Twelve Kingdoms, all before she, herself, succumbs to the final paralysis of the Sorceress's Sickness and must take the sleeping draught to wake up on the Other Side.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Robinson puts an intriguing twist on a low-tech fantasy world, presenting five types of magic that are in some ways indistinguishable from science. Draedreia Ashes is a rare and powerful fire sorceress who has been summoned to carry out an errand for the goddess Brigid and then die ceremoniously to serve her in the afterlife. Drae puts off the errand until her family and friends ostracize her and the struggle against the goddess's wishes makes her acutely ill. When she is accidentally cured, Drae must face her feelings for her family and her faith, which she never quite manages to do convincingly. Robinson's use of modern English alongside flowery fantasy prose is often jarring, and a cliffhanger ending provides an intriguing twist and plenty of suspense but little closure. (Feb.)
