Heralded by a red comet, the Mordant is Reborn. A thousand years of evil hidden beneath a young man's face, the Mordant returns in the guise of his oldest enemy. Keen to regain his full powers, he weaves his way north, sowing a trail of death and deceit. Kath and her companions leave the monastery, chasing an elusive shadow across the kingdoms of Erdhe, but the dark divide has already begun. Allies are set against allies, tearing the kingdoms asunder. A rebellion rises in Lanverness, threatening the queen's life as well as her crown. Trapped within her own castle, the Spider Queen must out-wit the traitors led by her own blood, or surrender her kingdom to Darkness. Across the border, the Lord Raven builds a religion into a fanatical bonfire. A fiery frenzy grips Coronth, fanning the powers of the Flame Priest into a raging threat. The eternal battle of Light and Dark is joined, but few mortals understand the rules.

About the Author

Karen L Azinger has always loved fantasy fiction, and always hoped that someday she could give back to the genre a little of the joy that reading has always given her. Eight years ago on a hike in the Columbia River Gorge she realized she had enough original ideas to finally write an epic fantasy. She started writing and never stopped. The Steel Queen is her first book, born from that hike in the gorge. Before writing, Karen spent over twenty years as an international business strategist, eventually becoming a vice-president for one of the world's largest natural resource companies. She's worked on developing the first gem-quality diamond mine in Canada's arctic, on coal seam gas power projects in Australia, and on petroleum projects around the world. Having lived in Australia for eight years she considers it to be her second home. She's also lived in Canada and spent a lot of time in the Canadian arctic. She lives with her husband in Portland Oregon, in a house perched on the edge of the forest. The first four books of The Silk & Steel Saga have already been written and she is hard at work on the fifth and final book.

The Flaming Priest did not let me down. I was very excited to get my hands on this book after the Steel Queen. Karen moved straight into more conspiracies and powerful characters. She has an amazing ability to drag the reader into her world. This book was full of action and movement. Karen has a wonderful fluidity as she transitions between one character to the next. It was very hard to put the book down when I had to. I loved this book and who her characters have turned into or are turning into as you grow to know them even better.  I have enjoyed reading Kath and understanding her as she transitions from young adult to woman. Linadra is a truly amazing character. I have become even more attached to her after this book and am starving to see how her mind and strategies work for the Skeleton King. Duncan has to be one of my favorite male characters in the books. Amazing wit and strength his character is taken to a new level in this book. Karen definitely had me sitting on the edge of my seat with her page turning events. Amazing!

Ok.. The Gnome has been in a HEAVY reading mode this last month reading such LONG Sagas as the Song of Fire of Ice (by G R R Martin) and some good Summer Reading fiction like David Baldacci's: The Collectors. In between all this I managed to Fit in some time to read the SECOND installment of Karen Azingers Silk and Steel Saga: The Flame Priest... This is not just the Second book in the saga but also her second book ever and the improvement is amazing... Now to be fair part of my "knock" on the first book was simply that I wanted more and MORE is what she delivers. The Characterization is really starting to tighten up and some of where this seems to be going is very interesting indeed... Once again the use of GOLDS (a monetary standard) as a character is very well handled and explores an issue in much fantasy fiction that gets ignored alot (unfairly in my opinion) that of just HOW did all these heros PAY for thier heroics. The bad guys pay in... well to say the least some unwholesome ways (and the battle between both the Sides of Darkness to OUT Gain the Favor of the Lord of Darkness is VERY gripping) but the good guys need to live by some rules of economy and Karen handles it well making for the well realized land of Erdhe... (on a side note I also recieved her book of Short Stories that include some tantalizing looks into the HISTORY of Erdhe... but that is another review LOL)
