"The tale is the kind of accomplished fanatsy--featuring sound chrarcterizations, superior world-building, and more than competent prose--that has won Tarr a large audience."--Booklist
"With elegant prose, Tarr beautifully conveys splendid real settings, realistic politics, convincing cultural details--and cultural clashes. Even when they wield awesome magic energies or manage empires, her appealing characters remain captivatingly human. This is a sweeping saga, spiced with exciting, unexpected plot twists."--Publishers Weekly

The plot concerns a youth who's the scion of a sun god. He comes to accept his inheritance of his grandfather's kingdom, but first he has to defeat his uncle. The boy has mind control powers and is a quick swordsman, so he kicks butt through most of the book. However, halfway through the book we find out he's only 15 years old! Suspension of disbelief is shattered at that point.
Save your money. This isn't worth reading.
