A fascinating story taking place in a world that feels remarkably, and bleakly, original. This story successfully mingles medieval themes such as religious zealotry, sexual promiscuity, lordship and peasantry, with the bleak, post-apocalyptic patterns of mystery, desolation and despair.

Almost all of the main characters are equipped with their own backstories and struggle to come to terms with the reality of their world and the rapidity of the plot's proceedings, which seemingly guide

The Adepts and Overseers have constantly been butting heads since the beginning of time. With brutal attacks happening over the city, leaving many injured and two Council members dead -- they work to challenge themselves to uncover the truths that are weaved into their lives in the web of myths.

The Dominion is rattled by violence affecting its outer villages. Members of the council have been murdered and age old distrust between the Academy and the Temple have perpetuated conspiracy theories.

I really enjoyed this book, read it in a weekend. Almost every chapter ends with some sort of bang, and the ending even more so (I really want to know what happens next). I liked the multiple perspectives, it felt like a puzzle slowly coming together as we get bits and pieces, and hints, about the world and its inhabitants. Granted, it took a few chapters to really get immersed, but once I did, the prose flowed well and I felt like I was in the Dominion. Pleasantly surprising find.

What a fun read! Really enjoyed the story line and the character development. It’s very well written. Loved some passages so much, I re-read them just to better savor the literary sophistication. Dialogues are fun and well-paced. Also made me LOL quite a few times. Finally a new series to be excited about. Highly recommended.
