Overview

The Bone Doll's Twin by Lynn Flewelling

Sometimes the price of destiny is higher than anyone imagined....

Dark Magic, Hidden Destiny

For three centuries a divine prophecy and a line of warrior queens protected Skala. But the people grew complacent and Erius, a usurper king, claimed his young half sister’s throne.

Now plague and drought stalk the land, war with Skala’s ancient rival Plenimar drains the country’s lifeblood, and to be born female into the royal line has become a death sentence as the king fights to ensure the succession of his only heir, a son. For King Erius the greatest threat comes from his own line — and from Illior’s faithful, who spread the Oracle’s words to a doubting populace.

As noblewomen young and old perish mysteriously, the king’s nephew — his sister’s only child — grows toward manhood. But unbeknownst to the king or the boy, strange, haunted Tobin is the princess’s daughter, given male form by a dark magic to protect her until she can claim her rightful destiny.

Only Tobin’s noble father, two wizards of Illior, and an outlawed forest witch know the truth. Only they can protect young Tobin from a king’s wrath, a mother’s madness, and the terrifying rage of her brother’s demon spirit, determined to avenge his brutal murder....

I gave up reading fantasy awhile ago; it was becoming predictable and juvenile. Then I discovered this book and my faith in the genre was restored. I bought the next book in the series before finishing this one and that is not something I usually do. I won't give the story away but I will say that if you like adventure, magic, sword fighting, and an author who doesn't write like her audience has the intelligence of a mothball-you know, all the things that make up the best sort of fantasy-then you will like this.

This story isn't very traditional fantasy, but it combines some traditional elements to make something completely different and new. This book is a little creepier than the other two, but completely worth the read.
