This is one of the longer Mithgar stories, and one of the better ones. This book goes back into the past, to one of the older ages of Mithgar when faeries and mages still were found. A pysk and a mage seek out a terrible evil that once again threatens to make a connection between MIthgar and the dark god that was banned from the world. This book, in a good way, fills in a lot of background for the later Mithgar stories, while expanding the world quite a bit.

I am normally a fan of McKiernan, but this book left me heavily disappointed. I owned this book for many years before finally reading it after a fellow English major recommended as one of McKiernan's best. I spent a month trudging through this very dense, extremely dull book and I can say that it is one of the worst books that I have ever read. It is so slow paced that it usually put me to sleep after only a few pages. Maybe I was hoping for more action, but for whatever reason this book was not very appealing to me. I think that this is a worthy book for those interested in philosophy and lively discussion between characters, but I would not recommend it to anyone expecting those very same characters to get out and actually do anything. They spent most of the book sitting around and talking, often enjoying tea while doing so.

As with all of McKiernan's books, he weaves a fantastic tale of adventure, magic,love, and even philosophy. A great escape that will make you want to read the rest of the Mithgar books.

Mr.McKiernan makes it easy for ones imagination to capture the story and all the details. I feel as though I have lived thru the story along with the characters. This is why he gets 5 stars from me. This is the way the early 'Wheel of Time' editions were for me. Now they seem bogged with too much wordage and introspection on the part of the characters. Back to Mr.McKiernan, This is the third novel I have read by him and I must say that he has a particular talent at ending the life of a character. When one dies it really seems traumatic. I have tried to analyze how he accomplishes this so well and consistently. The only thing I have come up with is that the relationships he gives his characters really make it hard to see one die. He doesnt just eliminate the most expendible character but often the least expendible and most cherished character dies. Its really traumatic (hehe).
