"War. Magic. A lover's betrayal. A dark secret lies beneath them all."

Great premise but a failure to deliver on well developed characters and a storyline that fell back onto child antics too often left a bitter taste in my mouth on this one.
It's never easy saying goodbye to such engaging characters, but I was left with a satisfying conclusion and the fulfillment of many character arcs so I'm happy.

Overall a slow read with some confusing plotlines which is saved by some good character building and the promise of the larger story forming for our two main characters.
A slow start to the series with minimal character development, I'm nevertheless giving this one three rockets because it does build a good foundation for the remainder of the series.
