Overview

Two worlds in two universes are on the brink of destruction. Both will burn. Connecting them and their shared fate is a linked past, a magical thread of light and a tear in the fabric of space. Separating them is a great barrier of Chaos and it threatens to invade and extinguish all life. Is there anyone out there able to prevent eternal darkness?

Valaris is threatened by the dara-witch, Infinity and beyond Ardosia the Darak Or Margus watches for the perfect opportunity to annihilate a world and its people. Both will use Chaos as a weapon of ultimate manipulation.

When Taranis of the Guardians is summoned to witness what will happen to Valaris should Ardosia fail and is forced to endure the Chaos barrier, he understands the Guardians need a sorcerer of extraordinary power to step forth.

Rayne of the Mantle meanwhile travels to Farinwood to find the magician Aven to confirm rumours of Infinity’s presence on Valaris. He isn’t prepared for what he discovers. Changeling children bent on murder, a secret Society of Sorcerers, the mysterious waif Averroes…and the Maghdim Medaillon, the magical coin that creates a thread of light between two realms.

There is a darkness coming.

Book 1 of the Lore of Arcana.

    I think the reason why this book is so brilliant is because despite being fantasy this is a thriller. Davidson just knows how to suck you in to care about the main characters, (and there's a certain side of your psyche who would just love to meet these people face to face because they're the new fantasy supermodels of the next millennium). The races she's *invented* are naturally glorious. They sound beautiful to behold and I envy her imagination and how amazing she made the planet and immortals of Valaris and the surrounds (other dimensions and planets, such as Ardosia) sound.

    This book climbs from page one (and you don't even realize it). The tension mounts from the first chapter and doesn't stop climbing. I have never ever read such convincing writing that I felt a part of the action in the middle of a death storm on the high seas (while written in the third person - brilliant!) - I was glued to my nook reading this book (and I'm not a fan of fantasy). Davidson makes you feel the desperation, the heat, the loss, the frustration. I'm enthralled with this planet, with the sentient beings and the evil evil evil Or Darak who completely annihilates Ardosia in a matter of hours. Davidson is a brilliant author who manages to give you familiarity in every *fantasy* setting. The common denominators with our own existence makes this realm immediately familiar and accessible. You relate to the world and the people. There are still the party animals who like to come out at night and get drunk and gamble and flirt the night away. There's a place which reminds of Ibetha and Mykonos. There's a place which reminds us of cloudy moist Britain. And there's desert and everything else in between. This place is familiar - but not.

    At the same time Davidson simultaneously taps into profound (and I do truly mean phenomenally profound) concepts and lays bare human potential and motivation. She takes the complicated, strips it down for you, and re-presents it to you as something you a) recognize and b) understand now that it's been made simple for you. These are amazing truths and observations which she's woven into the story and it's this level of the writing which truly blows me away (and has made me a fan forever).

    From an *I don't really like fantasy* reader, I rate this book 25 out of 10. Yes, it really is that good. This is more than a story, it's genius writing, and Davidson's book I'll treasure and read again and again, because she uses vocabulary with such ease that I don't think she repeats a word more than once. Her grasp on the English language is glorious. Yet not once is it stilted or difficult to read. It just flows, faster and faster and faster until you're swept up, gripped, breathless, and desperate to read on to get to the resolution. It's a truly superb read.

    "Emerald. Your mother died giving birth to you. You should respect that your still alive. I know how you feel but that doesn't mean you have to stand away from me. Your mother visited my dreams last night. She told me to keep all of her pups together and take you in as my pups. If you don't want me to be your mother then you have your father. The other pups are happy to have me as there mother. Besides,if you had no mother at all your father doesn't know what to do if his she-pup has a problem. Think about it." I watch the other pups thinking about emerald.
