Some say that in the city of Orlyn, godhood is on sale to the highest bidder. Thousands flock to the city each year, hoping for a chance at immortality.
Lydia Hastings is a knowledge sorcerer, capable of extracting information from anything she touches. When she travels to Orlyn to validate the claims of the local faith, she discovers a conspiracy that could lead to a war between the world's three greatest powers. At the focal point is a prisoner who bears a striking resemblance to the long-missing leader of the pantheon she worships.
Rescuing the prisoner would require risking her carefully cultivated cover - but his execution could mean the end of everything Lydia holds dear.

A promising and enjoyable fantasy start
Too much too fast.
Yes I would. This book was a lot of world building and setting. And the world is very interesting if not all throw at you all at once.
The world it's set in is by far the most interesting.
This book throws a ton of names, places, and overall exposition at you right out of the gate and it never really feels like it lets up. The world is interesting and I liked the characters but there was so much to keep straight that I tended to lose track. I still enjoyed the book but i'm hoping the second will focus more on characters since the world was mostly build in this book.
