In this splendid fantasy about two warriors, a princess, and a demonic plot, the last is against Princess Anja of Sessalie, whom Commander Taskin thinks has been kidnapped. Captain Mykkael thinks there is more to it than that, but because of his race and mercenary background, he isn't readily believed until civil war threatens to break out in Sessalie. Meanwhile, Princess Anja has fled far away, and Mykkael has to flee for his own life, overtake her, enlist help for her, and finally lead her to safety through the monster-haunted terrain of Hell's Chasm. Once a marriage is arranged into a family of potent sorcerers, Anja can see about saving her realm and family, while Mykkael takes vengeance on the demons who, many years ago, drove him from his homeland and love. Wurts is skillful as ever at world-building and pacing, and her background as an artist shows in the kind of intensely visual writing that makes one wish more fantasy were written by artists.

This book is a great read from beginning to end. The characters are people you like and admire. The magic is fun but the action and adventure really take the lead. Read morePublished on March 21 2004 by max

I had high hopes for this novel. Hopes that it would leave off the epic fantasy/quest trail and break new ground in the genre. But, alas, it was not to be. Read morePublished on March 14 2004 by V. A. Raj
