Theirs is a world of opposites. The privileged live in sky manors held aloft by a secretive magic known only as the Mysteries. Below, the earthbound poor are forced into factory work to maintain the engine of commerce. Only the wealthy can afford to learn the Mysteries, and they use their knowledge to further lock their hold on society. Cettie Pratt is a waif doomed to the world below, until an admiral attempts to adopt her. But in her new home in the clouds, not everyone treats her as one of the family.

Wheeler is such a great author. I enjoyed this book as much as I did reading the Kingfountain and Muirwood series. Wheeler is a master at character development and story. Reading his books often make me feel like I am on a roller coaster or other worldly adventure. Wherler is a true writer with an amazing gift. So grateful that he shares his gift with us.

I fully enjoyed the entire book. Well worth the time and cost. It's like reading three books in one.

He's waited centuries to find and kill the female prophesied as the only human empowered to destroy him. However, dispatching the king's assassin, Blade, to Rafel's Keep, ends in treason. For Blade arrives not with a weapon but rather a warning for the woman he's known and loved since he was a child.

Has a solid storyline and good foundation for first book in the series. There were moments in the book where I felt it was lacking some depth and needed more realistic character building, but overall an enjoyable read. I look forward to reading the next installment. Hoping the storyline and characters will continue to develop.
