Publisher's Summary

Once Chime had been the most promising mage in the land, feted and celebrated for her potential and future role in the kingdom. Then Iris, her young competitor, made a stunning leap in skill and turned Chime's world upside down. Now no longer the most powerful, no longer promised to a prince - and still unable to harness her magic properly - Chime was set adrift. As was the new king's cousin - and former heir - Lord Muller. Yet when the neighboring kingdom threatened war, Muller and Chime were tasked with uncovering the plot. Both were flawed, yet unwilling to accept a lesser destiny than they had once known. Could this quest be the opportunity for redemption - or would it lead them to their deaths?
Award-winner Catherine Asaro, author of The Skolian Empire, creates her first full-length fantasy novel in a world rich with magic and power. Fans who caught a glimpse of the kingdom of Aronsdale in "Moonglow" from the Charmed Destinies collection are delighted with the result!

Magic of geometry

Among fantasy books in which people are born endowed with magical talent, this book takes a different angle. (Ha, get it? Angle.) Geometric objects are the key to unlocking magic in this world, and I liked the story enough to read the next book in the series.

This Might be Great But.......

I just can get past the Narrator. She takes a lot away from the story, some of her pronounciation really annoys me. So I won t finish this book or the rest of the series. She would be better reading childrens stories. Sorry.
