I very much enjoyed her storyline. However, I found her style of writing very difficult to follow. Sometimes, I was just lost for a while. I had no idea what she meant. However, I kept on reading and then I would find the storyline had returned. The fact that I didn't understand everything didn't appear to affect my understanding of the story. Apparently the confusing stuff wasn't relevant to the story. So why did she put all the fluff in? I found this book more of a chore to read than a relaxation. If I can remember, I won't be buying anymore of her books. I read for relaxation and entertainment. This book was only half of that requirement.

This was one of the best and most creative books I've read in the fantasy genre. I have to admit that the first book in this duet took some work to get through the first half of it because there's a lot to set up. However, the second half of the first book and this whole book were worth the setup. Well done!

Beautiful world building, stunning prose, intriguing magic system (in both worlds), satisfyingly twisty plot and exceptionally well drawn, deep characters round out this remarkable conclusion to the Lighthouse series. I highly recommend both Flesh and Spirit and this novel to all fantasy readers. I suggest they be read together, as one large volume.

Valen the sorcerer does not want the role he finds himself in as he fears for the realms of the mortals and the Danae the beleaguered mage is convinced a new evil era is coming to both spheres. Adding to his discomfort and uncertainty is his feeling that he is the midpoint foci of a dangerous pair of villains pulling at him. He knows he must choose to ally with Osriel the bastard prince of Evanore or priestess Sila Diaglou both believe that the end is now. His selection between the lesser of two evils even if he chooses the right one still could prove too late as doom appears the most likely outcome for humanity and or the Danae regardless of what he does. --- This sequel to FLESH AND SPIRIT is an entertaining character study as much of the fantasy saga is an introspective of Valen seeking to save the worlds while also redeeming himself for his past transgressions. Readers who prefer fast-paced action should look elsewhere. However, those in the audience who enjoy a doubting hero struggling to be a champion while hesitating at every step he takes will appreciate Carol Berg¿s intriguing BREATH AND BONE. --- Harriet Klausner
