Shattered by the first Gods War, the world of Avolir teeters on the brink of ruin. Civilizations isolate themselves in a desperate attempt to protect their holdings from the
evils which still haunt their world while dark forces rise up in the east to destroy what little remains. Now a great doom has arisen in the eastern wastes that will threaten all of Avolir.
For years Isabella von Kruger has lived in this isloation only to be forced into the reality of the world around her. When her husband Vaclav is drawn into the conflict to the east, she is pulled into a journey that will test the very
fabric of her morality and put into question everything she has been raised to believe. It will be up to her and her unlikely band of companions to awaken from the devastating dark age of Avolir and to bring light back to their ravaged world.

A fresh fantasy tale, I honestly haven't ready anything like it. It's one part tudors, two parts high fantasy. Their is politics, magic, exploration, and drama all wraped into this story. The only problem with the book is that I wanted more. More character depth (not that the characters were shallow I just wanted to know and learn more about them). Honestly the book was a wonderful page turner I just felt that it ended to quickly and have since debated reading it again while I wate for the second book in the series. The book does have elements of your traditional high fantasy book but honestly it's a fresh take on it and steps away from the Tolken-esque feel that plauges so many fantasy books these days. In general if you're interested in trying something new I'd say give it a shot. The author does a great job of painting and weaving a wonderful setting filled with characters you will grow to love and care about throughout the story. It's just a shame that this first book wen't by so quick.
This saga has it all...compelling characters that live inside your head, wickedly funny dialogue, nerve racking situations which keep you turning the page, and a story that is at once new and eternal. This book was time and money well spent!
