Overview

Winner of the Compton Crook Award for Best First Novel

Young shepherdess Faia Rissedote, drawn home from the fields by the haunted certainty that something is wrong, discovers her world utterly destroyed, and in the process unleashes depths of magic within herself not even she suspected.

Dragged by strangers into a life she detests in a city where she doesn't belong, she reveals lies of history, monsters disguised as allies, and a secret the grand city that claims her has foolishly hidden-a secret that will destroy it and its inhabitants if Faia and her few tenuous allies cannot reverse the deadly threat wild magic has set free.

Meet the Author

Holly Lisle has been writing novels professionally since 1991, when she sold Fire in the Mist to Baen Books. The novel went on to win the Compton Crook Award for Best First Novel in 1993, sold remarkably well, and stayed in print for about ten years, giving Holly a seriously skewed view of the ease of publishing...

...Which publishing promptly clobbered out of her with later books. In spite of which, she has, at the time of this writing, sold 32 novels commercially, and is both re-releasing many of her novels via self-publishing, and self-publishing her newest novels.

Look for the re-release of Cadence Drake: Hunting the Corrigan's Blood, to kick off the long-delayed but finally in-progress ten-book Cadence Drake series.

Lisle also wrote and has been teaching two of the most challenging fiction-writing courses in existence: How To Think Sideways: Career Survival School for Writers, and How To Revise Your Novel: Get the Book You WANT From the One You WROTE.

She maintains and is active on her own website, where she talks with fans about life, writing, cats with hands, and much more.

Another fabulous Holly Lisle book. I devoured the entire series and was amazed by the level of detail given to each culture and to each type of magic. I highly recommend this book and its 2 sequels.

Faia a shepherdess must overcome the loss of all those she held dear and start on a new adventure to learn how to control the immense power she can summon. Faia feels like the underdog so I couldn't help but root for her as she starts in a magic school were things go from ok to apocolyptic in a very short time of her being there. Felt like a slow start to the story but as it progressed the pace really sped up - interesting twist for the ending.

The plot is actually about a girl, Faia, who finds herself in a mage school for females after discovering her own powerful magical abilities. A series of grisly murders points to the saje school for males and soon becomes the target for an all-out war.

This book was highly enjoyable. Sure, I have read it twice. It's really good, and I think everyone should read it. If anyone thinks otherwise of the book, well, then keep it to yourself.
