By Mercedes Lackey
Alberich is a Karsite that has been “Chosen” by Kantor. But, Alberich is a grown man (soldier) who spent most of his adult life chasing and killing brigands. Until the sunpriest tries to burn him for witch powers, Alberich is quite happy defending his homeland and people.
He has to make a new life with his enemies.
Lackey has great skill in creating characters and worlds. I was definitely pleased with this book. I read through the night. I felt that I knew Alberich and the heir (Selaney) quite well by the end of the book. The defense and fighting seemed well researched.
I give this book 5 stars.
