"I can command storms, summon fire and unmake stone," Balfruss growled. "It's dangerous to meddle with things you don't understand."
Balfruss is a battlemage, sworn to fight and die for a country that fears and despises his kind.
Vargus is a common soldier - while mages shoot lightning from the walls of the city, he's down in the front lines getting blood on his blade.
Talandra is a princess and spymaster, but the war may force her to risk everything and make the greatest sacrifice of all.
Magic and mayhem collide in this explosive epic fantasy from a major new talent.

It's Good But Why Should I Care.....
Matt Addis's performance is what made this book enjoyable.
Yes.... If they like Game of Thrones.....
That should say it all
There are a lot of moments that made really feel apart of the world. Anytime Vargus talked about brotherhood I felt like I was there apart of something bigger
My problem with this book is how much of a downer it ends on. If your a fan of game of thrones this will be right up your ally.
This is suppose to be the first part of a trilogy but having read the description of the next and knowing I will be dealing with new characters with new issues I just don't know why I should care.
The books greatest weakness is the fair number of segments that could have been cutout. They makes the book feel longer than it is and more than once I checked to see how much time was left. Sadly most of the are Talandra POV so at first I thought I just didn't like Talandra herself.
I really don't know what to make of this book but again I say if you like game of thrones and want something like that but with more magic then this would be a good choice.
