Reviews

Praise for series: "Lackey has written another intensely wrought, finely detailed story of heroic victims struggling to do the best with their fate. Vanyel's magical strengths are countered by his very human insecurities." --VOYA "Lackey's characterization, plotting, and wit are all of a high order. A real page-turner for any fantasy collection." --Booklist "Emotionally tense and full of drama and magic." --Locus "In Vanyel, [Lackey] has created her most empathetic male character to date, making our emotions run high as he meets his fate. And best of all, the very last plot twist is one of haunting beauty that will touch your heart." --RT Reviews "In this trilogy, Lackey reaches an intensity she had only begun to achieve.... The story of Vanyel is darker than her earlier books, and the pace is unrelenting." --American Fantasy Magazine
