Dust and Light: Sanctuary, Book 1 | [Carol Berg]

Dust and Light: Sanctuary, Book 1

How much must one pay for an hour of youthful folly? The Pureblood Registry accused Lucian de Remeni-Masson of "unseemly involvement with ordinaries", which meant only that he spoke with a young woman not of his own kind, allowed her to see his face unmasked, worked a bit of magic for her.... After that one mistake, Lucian’s grandsire excised half his magic and savage Harrowers massacred his family.

Publisher's Summary

National best-selling author Carol Berg returns to the world of her award-winning Flesh and Spirit and Breath and Bone with an all-new tale of magic, mystery, and corruption....

How much must one pay for an hour of youthful folly? The Pureblood Registry accused Lucian de Remeni-Masson of "unseemly involvement with ordinaries", which meant only that he spoke with a young woman not of his own kind, allowed her to see his face unmasked, worked a bit of magic for her....

After that one mistake, Lucian’s grandsire excised half his magic and savage Harrowers massacred his family. Now the Registry has contracted his art to a common coroner. His extraordinary gift for portraiture is restricted to dead ordinaries - beggars or starvelings hauled from the streets.

But sketching the truth of dead men’s souls brings unforeseen consequences. Sensations not his own. Truths he cannot possibly know and dares not believe. The coroner calls him a cheat and says he is trying to weasel out of a humiliating contract. The Registry will call him mad - and mad sorcerers are very dangerous....

    "Bring on Book 2!"

    A fantastic start to a new trilogy! The plot is dynamic and new. The characters are a little... I'm not sure what the right description is. Wooden? Superficial? Both these words are too intense. It's only a vague sense of incompleteness that dogs them.Perhaps not fully realised is the best description of them. Good is good, bad is bad and evil is evil. They aren't particularly complex characters.

    Quick synopsis: this is a world with a rigid caste structure. The main character finds himself an outcast with no clue of why. It becomes clear that there is a cabal that is willing to kill to ensure that the caste structure remains intact. Throw in civil war and murder and the resulting plot is exciting.

    It ended on a fantastic cliffhanger - you'll be waiting for book 2 with bated breath!
