This tale was quite intriguing. It's been a while since I've read a medieval-like high fantasy novel. I also liked the idea of Arasemis being a warrior-scholar. Usually, a character is designed to be one or the other. I found all the characters to be intriguing and I loved that it jumped from one character to another. I prefer to be able to capture the story from multiple perspectives, so I love being able to follow different characters!

I write the Earthpillar novels and half-tales with flavors of fantasy, historical fiction, adventure, and steampunk. My debut novel, Lords of Deception, is the core of a nonlinear matrix of books that allow readers to wander and explore an epic alternative Earth that blends new continents and peoples, political intrigue, fictional materials, and customized medieval and early modern technologies.
