Book 1 of 2. Wishing for 3!

Fabulous narration. Top notch! As for the story, this is book one of two, a short fantasy series with wizards, elemental gods, specially gifted "Travelers" and some romance. I really bonded with the characters introduced in this book. They became real to me across the two books. Wish Briggs would write another book, making a trilogy of it. I want to see more of Seraph, Tier, Jes, Hennea, Lehr, Rinnie, Emperor Phoran the 26/27th, and his two loyal guards. I even loved the big black dog and the old war horse.

Heartwarming, engrossing, and fairly novel. Some grim scenes. Some black magic. Some bardic storytelling, song, and campfire camaraderie, to balance the darker bits.

My only gripe is that sometimes the author goes on too long, trying to explain how her magic works, what the "orders" are, who the gods are, etc. But that happens more in book 2 than in this book.
