The Citadel of Wizards was under siege. Deep in the Vaults beneath the walled city, gates into inhuman realities were opening and closing without warning. Monsters emerged from other dimensions; and ancient, malign magics came to life under the influence of cosmic chaos.
Someone was tampering with the Void.
The Council of Wizards blamed Antryg Windrose, the rebel mage who had fled their justice to find haven in the City of Angels. Across dimensions, they reached out to bring him back... Antryg refused the wizards' summons. But when Joanna was kidnapped, Antryg followed the woman he loved back across the Void. Trapped in the Citadel between the vengeful mages who once had been his friends and the unspeakable horrors in the Vaults below, Antryg launched a desperate bid to rescue Joanna - while all about him, the very fabric of the universe unraveled...

Fantasy, sci-fi, Motorcycles, and my granddaughter. And I am a rail road engineer.
I would, but only if I couldn't find anything better. The book was okay, and the main character was fairly humorous. This is a book to listen to while you are passing the time. It was well written and I was not disappointed, but it did not reach out and grab me either. On a scale of 1 to 10 this book was a very solid five.
She very much got into the spirit of the book. I absolutely love the way she portrayed the main wizard character. All of her characters were well done to be sure, but I really like the way she did Windrose.
It was. And while the book did not achieve greatness, it was entertaining. I listened to it on my commute to and from work.
The book itself was chock-full of very serious characters revolving around a very serious plot. The subplots were very good as well. However, the main character, a sorcerer named Windrose was done with humor and irreverence. He was an excellent foil to an otherwise very serious story. He is very interesting character that I would like to see more of. Though the ending was quite predictable, the book still kept me entertained on my long commute to and from work. It's not Lord of the rings, and he is not Gandalf. But still an enjoyable read.
