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
Definitely a keeper
I immediately was swept into this book right from the beginning. The world and character development were nicely done. I like the idea of the use of magic causing a physical cost to the user. The action scenes were incredibly engaging. Nick Podehl is as masterful as ever. I had a hard time putting this one down. Moving on to the second book and I already can't wait for the third.
