Publisher: Angry Robot
Publishing Date: June 2016
Publishers Description: Five refugees from a plague-stricken island cross the continent searching for answers. Instead they find Psander, a wizard whose fortress is invisible to the gods, and who is willing to sacrifice anything – and anyone – to keep the knowledge of the wizards safe.
Review: Wow, this was crazy good especially when you consider that this is the authors first novel.
The world building is spectacular and the movement spans different territories while entertaining specific quests along the way. The character development is really well done. Each character has named chapters that give their unique perspective on the traveling entourage and their own internalizations. Add in some wizards, Elfs, a dragon and a few angry Gods and the recipe for great entertainment is complete. I sure hope I get to read more about Narky, Criton, Bandu, Phaedra and Hunter. GET THIS!
