The story starts just a few months after the events of The Fire Mages, but it’s a stand-alone book, with a completely different location and a new set of characters; you don’t need to have read either The Plains of Kallanash or The Fire Mages first. However, if you have read one or both of the other books, you can have fun spotting some familiar references in the story!
I’m really excited about this tale, because the two main characters are quite unusual. Fen is a forty-year-old woman with an interesting past and some strange habits. And yes, that glowing ball she’s holding on the cover is a bit special. What’s that all about? Mal is the relentlessly flirting mage guard who fixes his sights on her. And there’s a strange tower, and a disappearing mage, and plenty of trouble afoot for our heroes, with magic at the heart of things. I hope you like it!
You can read the first four chapters here.
A fragile peace. A clash of magic. A woman with secrets.
The war between Bennamore and the coastal region was over almost before it began. But the uniquely powerful mage who forged the alliance is dead, and the coastal folk are restless. Now the victors are bringing their spellcraft to the Port Holdings, unaware that the locals have their own less conspicuous magical ability.
Fen’s new job with the mages of Bennamore seems pleasant enough, but their powers threaten to expose her shady little habits. And then she can’t shake off the attentions of the flirtatious and uneducated guard, Mal. Nothing, it seems, will deter him.
The mysterious disappearance of a mage uncovers a dragon’s nest of deceit. Mal needs Fen’s help to figure it out, but she has divided loyalties and her past drags everyone into the middle of a violent conspiracy. Yet she may be the only one who can stand between the two countries, and stop them plunging back into a war which, this time, would destroy all of them.
