Publisher's Summary

Mykella, the eldest daughter of the Lord-Protector of Lanachrona, discovers that someone is diverting significant sums of money from her father's treasury. Soon, a series of fatal and near fatal accidents occur with members of her family and trusted retainers. Then there are attempts to remove Mykella and her sisters from the capital by marrying them off.
While Mykella develops a solid idea of who stands behind it all, each of her attempts at a solution is used to discredit her. But Mykella is also discovering her talent for magic.

Modesitt fails to produce

In this resurrection of the Corean Chronicles, Modesitt should have left well enough alone.
Right from its onset, one is wondering how events are occurring, or even why. How is it that Mykella "knows" something is wrong with the accounting books? Where did the Soarer come from that had all died out? And even its final ending makes you ask the question "Why didn't she do this earlier before all of the deaths occurred"? Mykella's whole demeanor throughout the book is disheartening, showing little or no "guts" to make a hard decision, or to take a stand for her beliefs. Instead she hides her failure by a "dear me, no one will listen to me so why bother" altitude. Sadly, it appears that Modesitt has already brought Mykella back, and I for one, will pass on it.
