The Hymage of Aaria rules an entire continent as its tyrant. For a millennia, the Eikos caste has been subject to him and to the Synths, who consume the powerful hyma drug in order to awaken their ether and work magic.
Toven Aimis is a poor Eikos boy who passes a test and is taken to be trained as one of the Hymage's Synths. At the University where he is schooled, Toven begins to understand that his ether is quite different than that of the others around him, for he is able to do things with magic that should be impossible.
He finds himself at the center of a thousand-year-old conspiracy, though what his part is in that plot, he does not yet know. What he does know, however, is that he is no mere Synth. A thousand years ago, the true mages died out, but all evidence points to Toven possessing their superhuman ability to manipulate the physical world.
The question now is whether Toven can use his power to right the many wrongs of the Hymage and bring equality and justice to the Aarian Dominion, or whether he will simply become the next in a long line of tyrants. Because power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Fantasy is not normally my first choice, but this series caught my imagination and interest from the beginning. It is very well written, has many fascinating characters and the story gripped my attention and held me enthralled until the last page with a very surprising and moving ending. I would recommend this book to all readers even if you are not normally drawn to fantasy. It is fast paced and full of action.
Picked up as future read.
