Overview

In a world shrouded by soot and smoke, young Makarria has literally been forbidden to dream…

Legend has foretold the demise of Emperor Thedric Guderian at the hands of a sorceress with royal blood, and the Emperor has made it his legacy to stamp out all magic from the Sargothian Empire in favor of primitive coal fired smelters and steam powered machines. When Guderian’s minions discover a Dreamwielder on a seaside farmstead, a chain of events forces Guderian’s new threat—the young Makarria—to flee from her home and embark upon an epic journey where her path intertwines with that of Princess Taera, her headstrong brother, Prince Caile, and the northman Siegbjorn, who captains a night-flying airship.

Dogging their every step is the part-wolf, part-raven sorcerer, Wulfram, and Emperor Guderian, himself, a man who has the ability to stint magic and a vision to create a world where the laws of nature are beholden to men and machines. Only by learning to control the power she wields can Makarria save her newfound companions and stop the Emperor from irreversibly exterminating both the magic in humans and their bond with nature.

    A solid and entertaining read

    After reading the description, I had to read this book. Happily, it didn't disappoint. The book was well written and entertaining the whole way through. The ending was very cleverly written - even though you can guess the result you probably won't guess the method. I expect there will be more in this series and I will definitely continue reading.

    Excellent Series

    A battle between a government built on the concept of the superiority of iron machines and where the use of magic is against the law and dealt with viciously. The only thing standing in the way of the Emperor being able to eliminate all magic users from the world is a very young "Dreamwielder". A Dreamwielder needs only be able to transform into a dreamlike state and anything she can envision happens. Impossible to defeat, it would seem, except the one person she must defeat is magically protected from any kind of magic. A formidably enemy by himself, however added to his arsenal are two of the strongest Sorcery users in the world and an army of thousands. The Sorcery Users of course will be eliminated at end of their usefulness.
    You won't be able to predict what happens along the way, and even though you may be sure that "all ends well" you are never quite "that" sure.

    A good story, especially for young teens?

    It was a good book. It seemed there could have been more detail, as it seemed to jump through events at times. There perhaps could have been a little more to the ending too. It was nice though to read a book and not have it be a series or trilogy. Too many are that way and you don't realize it until you get to the end of the first book. This book leaves the possibility there but provided an ending. Enjoyed.
