I was thrust into a world of magic, mortals, gods and those who serve both man and gods.
Reading this was like taking in the various concepts of mortality, alliances and more so free will...and I love a book that has a lead heroine.

Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
