Publisher's Summary

Moira Illeniel was the name she lived by, but her true heritage was more complicated than that. From birth she was the secretly adopted daughter of the most powerful wizard in the world, but few knew that her true birthright came from the Centyr lineage. Traveling to Dunbar to discover the fate of her vanished father, Moira must face the darker aspects of her power. Forced to fight a foe unlike anything seen before in Lothion, she will learn the reason for the warnings her mother's shade gave her - why certain abilities should never be used and some lines never crossed - for some doors, once opened, might never be closed again.

The twisting of Moira

A very good continuation of the Mageborn saga. While much of the first half of the story revolves around the three young adult scions of the royal families and the older hunter/tracker in search of Mordecai, in one sense, it's more about the transitioning of the young adults from their sheltered and naive youth to that of clear-headed and cold awareness of the world around them. This is most profoundly thrust upon Moira as she finds herself becoming aware of heretofore unknown powers. Powers so horrible that, when exercised, strips her innocence and makes her so wrought with guilt that her personality borders on psychopathy.

There are several grievous moments where, in the aftermath, the protagonists are left second guessing their decisions to the point of being debilitating. While not clearly outlined, the author subtly touches on the concept of fate, destiny or self-determination and while he provides no clear answers, he does burnish the sharp edges of the consequences.

While there are a few weak areas in the story such as the dragons where they mostly play the role of transportation, with sometimes breaking/burning things, the hunter/tracker's Asperger Syndrome being over used, &c but, even so, the book was enjoyable, made the more so by the excellent talents of the narrator.

One of my all time favorite books.

I have been listening to these stories from the bitter start. I find myself itching for more when I came to the end of one book. Wishing that I didn't have to wait for the next book to either be set out on paperback. Or to be listened to from Audible.

Too much battle

Continuing from the previous book this 2nd part starts well. However, they are too many battles and the author describes every detail and it was boring for me. I had to skip many times to continue with the story. It's a big difference from the 1st one regarding the story line. I was quite disappointed because I like the narrator.

Although I have to say at the end in the prologue it looks interesting again so maybe he 3rd part will be good again.
