“Doesn’t she know you can’t do real magic alone?”
Freshly graduated from the Voleno Academy, Faylanna Derrion is trying to find her solitary place in a world where she and her fellow Magicia are expected to find their magical partner as soon as possible. When her mentor and his partner are taken by a terrible darkness before her eyes, her flight to find help brings Tavis into her life.
Can she learn to see him as more than a simple farmer or will she accede to her father’s demands to return to her family’s home, following a path others have laid out for her? Can she choose her own course, after a lifetime of refusing to bind herself to anyone?
My Rating: ★★★★ (4 out of 5)
This is the first book in the Mirrors of Bershan trilogy. A story about the feisty Faylanna and her life after leaving the Voleno academy for Magicia. As the first book in a trilogy, I found it a very satisfying story.
The immediate plot in the book is dealt with though you can feel the wider story starting to develop. Enough intriguing parts left open for the next two books in the series.
The world created is very well drawn and the characters come to life on the page. I thought it was well written and well edited and a credit to a self-published work. The more self-published books that are presented like this will help the cause enormously.
I’m not usually a reader of the fantasy genre, but I enjoyed this visit and will make sure it’s not the last fantasy book I read. So much so, I have already downloaded the second book in the trilogy, Possession.
Says enough me thinks 🙂
