Publisher Comments:

The comfortable world of Martris Drayke, second son of King Bricen of Margolan, is shattered when his older half-brother, Jared, and Jared¿s dark mage, Foor Arontala, kill the king and seize the throne. Tris is the only surviving member of the royal family aside from Jared the traitor. Tris flees with three friends: Soterius, captain of the guard; Carroway, the court¿s master bard; and Harrtuck, a member of the royal guard. Tris harbors a deep secret. In a land where spirits walk openly and influence the affairs of the living, he suspects he may be the mage heir to the power of his grandmother, Bava K¿aa, once the greatest sorceress of her age. Such magic would make Tris a Summoner, the rarest of magic gifts, capable of arbitrating between the living and the dead.

Synopsis:

An engrossing tale of loss and revenge, of life and afterlife--and the thin line between them--this novel begins an epic new series, marking the debut of a stunning new talent in the fantasy firmament. Original.

This book was given to me as a gift, signed by the author. It sat on the shelf for a while originally because I was thrown a bit by the titles. (wasn't sure if I was into reading something too dark or morbid.) It's not as dark as one might imagine. It's a personal choice, read the first chapter to get a feel for her style. I picked it up and was surprised and pleased by the setup of the characters, and the progress which Gail moves the story along. Things happens quickly enough without being redundant or rushed, the characters are developed and are dedicated to a few individuals, not too many. Plus, not so many minute details, which can dull a good story. A nice read. Looking forward to the rest of the series now.

I love Gail's style of writing.
From the very beginning the book flows along nicely.
Never really a dull moment.
Doesn't go into unnecessary detail like a lot of fantasy novels do.
I can't wait to get a copy of the next book in the series
