Overview

Tyrant Moon tells the story of a dying mage who must help a barbarian warrior in her quest to save her people. Thraxis is an Athraskani wizard who created a magic jewel that would gift any mage with enormous power. A rogue wizard stole the jewel, using it to cast a death curse on Thraxis before fleeing to hide among the barbarian tribes. The Arrow that Flies the Farthest is the Champion of her clan-its most skilled warrior, whose ritual combats with other Champions were meant to prevent war among the clans. But war is unleashed nevertheless when her ambitious chieftain joins forces with the rogue Athraskani. Arrow's only hope of stopping the war seems to lie with Thraxis, who alone knows how to destroy the jewel he created. But can a pacifist wizard and a woman born to kill find the common ground needed to work together...before time runs out for them both?

Arrow that Flies the Farthest was the Champion of her barbarian clan, the Red Feathers. She had been trained for the task since the age of five. At fifteen she killed her first Champion. Duty and honor bound, she did as her chief, Blood on the Wind, bade her to do. In greed, he challenged each clan and had Arrow defeat their Champion in combat for their land. But when a sorcerer named Balthazar joined the Red Feather clan, they became unstoppable! Balthazar had an amulet that trapped the souls of enemies and fed his magic. Using it, he made Arrow into a berserker. Speed made her a blur to others. Her strength multiplied and her senses sharpened. When Blood forced her to kill the king of all the clans, along with women and children, she rebelled. ................... Thraxis was an Athraskani (wizard). He was the best ever born. When Balthazar stole an amulet and left the order, he also left a death trap behind for Thraxis. Thraxis managed to stay alive, but could not stop the spell. It was slowly killing him. It took all his magic to keep the spell slow. Even so, he had only months to live. ..................... Arrow asked the Black Council for help in defeating Balthazar. Since Thraxis was useless to them, they sent him. On the way to meet the rebels who felt as Arrow did, Thraxis searched out another Athraskani named Viabold for aide. Many secrets were revealed to each other in their travels. Only they had a chance to stop Blood and Balthazar. ................. ***** W-O-W! Here is an awesome story! I tried to keep the vital things out and reveal only what I had to in the synopsis. You will NOT be disappointed in this book! Danger, many battles, betrayal, love, and villains that seem invincible! Highly recommended reading here! *****

I picked up "Tyrant Moon" after seeing Corvidae on a panel at a fantasy convention. I was surprised st just how much I enjoyed the story. :) Thraxis and Arrow are terrific characters. While Thraxis starts out as whiny and almost unlikeable, he changes and matures over the course of the tale. Viabold is a riot, while Blathasar (the villain) is actually a bit sympathetic. Plus, I really like how Corvidae structures the narrative. The chapters flip-flop between the main story of Arrow and Thraxis fighting Balthasar, and the "prequel" in which Arrow sets out on her quest to find help against Balthasar; the two narratives fold together neatly, with the book ending in the same place it began. Highly recommended to fans of epic fantasy, or those looking for a story with a strong female protagonist. -- lyradora
