Publisher's Summary

In the Raverran Empire, magic is scarce, and those born with power are strictly controlled - taken as children and conscripted into the Falcon Army.
Zaira has lived her life on the streets to avoid this fate, hiding her mage-mark and thieving to survive. But hers is a rare and dangerous magic, one that threatens the entire empire.
Lady Amalia Cornaro was never meant to be a Falconer. Heiress and scholar, she was born into a treacherous world of political machinations.
But fate has bound the heir and the mage. And as war looms on the horizon, a single spark could turn their city into a pyre.
The Tethered Mage is the first novel in a spellbinding new fantasy series.

A different type of Mage tale.

I really enjoyed this Audio book because it was a different take on magic and how to control magic. In this tale, the Mage has an habbit of loosing control of their magic and destroying whole cities and multiple lives. To control the Mage, they can be tethered much like someone would tether a hawk or falcon. This is done with a magical tether that is placed around the wrist of the Mage. The story gets interesting when the daughter of a very high ranking noble tethers a very dangerous fire mage to save the city from burning to the ground.
A very well written and narrated story. Solid 4 stars!
