Overview

Lorth of Ostarin is an assassin trained by a wizard unknown to his kind. He is paid very well to employ both the primeval darkness of a hunter and the ordered light of a mage, an uneasy combination he does not question until he returns home after a long assignment and trips into a turbid river of war, politics and the violation of all he holds dear. Lawless and adept, he picks no sides and takes no prisoners. When his wolfish ways get him imprisoned for crimes he did not commit, he discovers the deeper source of his ability and falls in love with a priestess who frees him to his fate. But the rift in his heart widens under the forces of love, loyalty and the occupation of his realm by a warlord who honors neither hunters nor wizards. To reclaim his homeland, Lorth must bow his head to death itself, a sacrifice that will transform him into the most powerful hunter the land has ever known.

    Owlhearts Shadows~ 3

    "Owlkit, Step foward!" Nervously, he stepped foward. His brief kithood had sped by faster than a frightened squirrel. "From this day on until you recieve your warrior name, you will be known as Owlpaw. Emberstreak will be your mentor." The cheers shook the lat autumn air, the rusty air tainted by their breath. The breeze appeared to be joining the choru as it wistled thugh the branches. Emberstreak, the deputy, stepped foward, touching her slighly old nose to his. "We hould get to training right away." She meowed. "Follow." And she dashed away, and Owlpaw heard her top when she remembered his blindness. She came over to his side and guided him there, his fur snagging on a few brambles. Eventually, his paws scraped smooth sand, tickling his sensitive pads. "Now. Our blindness doesnt mean your useless. Use your other senses- hear your enemy, smell your enemy, feel your enemy. Now, jump at me." Owlpaw gaped, then crouched. He sprung foward clumsily, smacking his paw onto a stone. He yipped and limped back. Emerstreak sighed. "Your doubting yourself. Lets just go onto hunting." Hunting! This should be much easier. "Now, show me a hunting crouch." Owlpaw dropped down, lowering his head and flipping his ears back. His tail swished. "Hold your tail still! The prey will hear it." She meowed, waiting until he got it perfectly. "Great. Now go catch some prey." He padded quietly off, doubt pricking inside of him. The trail of a musky-scented mouse hit his nose. He could feel its heartbeat- feel it as if it were his own, smell it a if it were his own. The mouse was directly in from of him. He snaked foward, his white face lowered, his tan body blending perfectly with the light brown shades of the dead foliage carpeting the ground; but of course, owlpaw didnt know. He was blind after all. Suddenly, he sprung; fast as lightning.

    Great Fantasy with Magic

    Lorth is a hunter, but not the kind you would generally think of. Instead of hunting animals, he hunts men. He is a hired assassin, trained to adhere to the rede (the assassin’s code). Returning to his homeland, he finds the land in a state of turmoil. There is a vast, well-developed world within these pages. There are different kingdoms and a rich history for each of them. There is plenty of description on each page, allowing me to picture the landscapes and events as they pass. The start to this story is a bit slow, but it does not disappoint. The first few chapters contain long descriptions as well as very long sentences. I wasn’t sure what was going on for the first couple of chapters, but finally the action drew me in. There is plenty of excitement, and it held my attention well until the end. Lorth is an interesting character. I was given lots of glimpses inside his head, which allowed me to see just what was going on. He sticks to his own code, and he never seems to waver. His responses to certain events are believable and stay true to his character without becoming predictable. There is an abundance of magic throughout the story. As a magic fan, I appreciate that. It took a while for me to figure out who certain groups were and whether they possessed magical abilities, but that is probably only due to there being quite a bit to learn about this fantasy world. There is no information dump, and you learn more about the world as you follow Lorth’s journey. I can’t go without mentioning the animals of this story, and Lorth’s special affinity for cats. I enjoyed his ability to communicate with them, and that he finds help among his animal companions. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
