Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a great worldwide civilization, the end of a golden age. New civilizations have fought their way up from the ancient destruction and chaos, knowing little of the lost world that preceded them or the details of its fall. Corus today is a world of contending countries, of humans, but also of strange animals and supernatural creatures. It is a place of magical powers and of a few people who are talented enough to use them. Alusius, the hero of the story, is one.

Same formula, different characters
I've tried other books by the author and they're pretty much the same as this one. Perhaps different location and character names but it's the same story line. In this book it's not even well executed.
It's not a coherent telling of a story. The book is written more like a journal. there's 125 chapters of very short length that detail a short period of time and sometimes these chapters aren't really connected (especially in the first part of the story).
The narrator tried to give each character a distinct voice but most of them ended up sounding similar. The women sounded like men most of the time.
The main one. With the way the book is written the main character really isn't a character, he's a plot device. There are some interesting characters who could really shine but they stay in the background.
If you've read any of the author's other books you have read this one. The main character in this book follows in the footsteps of all of the author's other main characters. The places and names might be different but the plot's pretty much the same. The only difference between the author's other works and this latest book is that there's less verbosity... which detracts fromt he story even more.
