Sharon Shinn is the master of slow-burn, clean romantic subplots. My favorite thing about them is that they are always mature, and the characters usually act quite reasonably. This book is a high fantasy quest, with a big helping of intrigue where the southern lords are plotting treason against the king. High fantasy quests are hard to make interesting because they can be meandering as the people questing go from town to town and it can be difficult in between episodes of dramatic things to pay attention. This book suffers a bit from that, but I can fully say that I don't have a lot of patience as a reader and quest fantasy is not my favorite sub-genre so I don't count that as a strike against this book. If you like quest fantasy you probably won't mind it. What saved it for me was that all of the characters were interesting, and I wanted to know more about them. I became terribly invested in each of the characters' relationships with each other. This book is also setup for mysteries and conflicts that will hopefully be revealed in the next books, so I will definitely be reading them.… (lisätietoja)

The city of Corcannon was built by a god of the same name who used a piece of technology that nobody understands anymore. Seismic forces will destroy the city unless it is renewed with the blood of one of Corcannons descendants. Of course there is only one of those left.
The plot is more complicated than this and follows 4 different characters as they play different roles in saving Corcannon. A happy ending makes for a fun story.

Quick Word: Only one story was worthwhile, another was alright and two were... unpleasant... to read. (Did't even get through the last two.)

Quick Word: Only enjoyed two of the stories, but the first was especially original. I also took pleasure from the story by Sharon Shinn, which, as always, has beautiful characterization and imagery.
