Mordecai has discovered his heritage and must take up the mantle of a lord of the realm, while figuring out what it really means to be a mage of the line of Illeniel. He is beset on both sides by allies and enemies trying to control or destroy his future. Gods and kings both seek to manipulate him for their own ends, and no matter what he chooses his loved ones will suffer. Will he risk destroying his love with a bond that might be her death, or face the madness that comes to wizards who embrace power without restraint?

I enjoyed the first book in this series very much. I thought it was fun and original. This book is pretty good too, don't get me wrong. It seems to me though that as the story goes along it starts borrowing more and more from the Wheel of Time series. Male mages that have to be bounded or go insane? I think I've heard that one already. Othe than that, and they say that immitation is the highest form of flattery, it is a pretty good book. I just picked up the third one and am curious enough about it to get started. If you're loing for something not too heavy with some pretty decent humor scattered throughout, check it out.
