Part 1 of Jill Williamson's Epic Fantasy Series The Kinsman Chronicles

The god of the soil is furious. Volcanic eruptions, sinkholes, earthquakes--everything points to his unhappiness. At least this is what the people of Armania in the Five Realms believe.

Amid the unsettling state of the world around them, the princes of Armania live their lives focused more on who will claim the throne after their sickly father, King Echad, dies. That is until Prince Wilek's concubine turns up dead--beside her, a bloodied message that seems to have come from the mother realms.

Darkness Reigns is collected together with parts 2 and 3 in King's Folly.

While the table of contents as well as an opening dictionary of characters appears to present a complex if not confusing world, the author skillfully introduces the world she has created. The story has multiple plots some of which are open and the remainder veiled. It is an interesting read and sound introduction as a series opener. I look forward to the second book in the series. My nook software had a few issues with the ^ used in some words and substituted boxes in its place. There doesn't seem to be too many spelling errors.

Not my cup of tea, but I am sure there are some who will enjoy it. I had a hard time with trying to keep up with all the people with unusual names. Did not finish it.

A very good book! I am already loving some of the characters in this first book of the series. Miele is probably my favorite, but I also like Kal, Trevn, Wilek, and Charlon too! It takes a little bit to get used to the world, who's who, etc., but hang in there-it's worth it! ;) Once you get into this book you are not going to want to put it down!! Then at the end, you are going to want to read the next one! Be prepared!! :)
