it was amazing
bookshelves: have-read

This is by far the best series I have ever read. From the start I was a little mixed about the idea of mixing Sci-Fi with my fantasy -although they are my two favorite genre’s and Sci-Fi usually has fantasy mixed in I prefer it to be a one way street.

By the time Damian was in town and the Hunter was introduced I was completely convinced this lady has skills. I enjoyed everything from the basic background elements and the implied and actual politics, down to the actual physics of the magic. In the end she explains why the magic works the way it does and again splits off on a road that I would have discouraged, but with such plausibility it comes out very well. I would suggest these books to any one who enjoys fantasy literature.

She follows this up by actually bringing the books to an end, something fantasy authors have forgotten how to do. All three of these books are five stars.
