Overview

"The difference between a Power and a God is mostly procedural. You worship a God. With a Power, you negotiate.”— Black Kath's Tally Book

When Marta’s sorceress mother dies suddenly, it is the young and almost completely unprepared Marta who must assume the debt her mother owed to the Power called Amaet. The debt is bond service, and can only be repaid by a magician powerful enough to perform a Great Work. With her mother’s own magical servants in revolt and opportunistic enemies coveting what little power she has, matters go from bad to worse. Armed only with her knowledge of the First Law and her mother’s tally book, Marta would count herself lucky to survive, never mind contend face to face with a Power. Yet contend she must, and with one last parting gift from her mother and her own hidden strengths, she just might do what her mother could not. Provided, of course, she can stay alive.

Set five hundred years after the events in The Long Look, Black Kath’s Daughter is the story of a different sort of magician in search of her own destiny, and the kind of life her mother never had.

    Highly Recommend This Book

    Richard Parks is a writer whose skills are high indeed, and in this story set later in the world of his novel THE LONG LOOK, he has once again amazed me as a reader. There are twists and turns, and just enough humor to keep you wanting more. Get this book for your Nook. You won't be sorry.
