I really liked this book, maybe I was overdue for a tortured hero story but even if I hadn’t been, Mel’s character is great. While much of the kingdom feels that Cobalt is evil, Mel learns that he’s only troubled by his own inner demons and the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that stand before him.

The Misted Cliffs
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Well paced, the story thankfully stands alone – I picked it up at a used book sale without knowing that it was the second in a series. The move from regions where magic is appreciated to a region where it’s feared and misunderstood was interesting.

One of the things I like about Catherine Asaro’s book is the way she can introduce characters who appear to be black and white unpleasant at the least and evil at the most, and then reveal more and more about them until we begin to understand them and maybe even like them. Cobalt leads armies to war and conquers two countries, resulting in the needless deaths of tje soldiers, ciffs no reason whatsoever except to win the good opinion of his father and grandfather.
Each book is somewhat formulaic, but enjoyable, and I always find myself interested in the lives of the characters. First-time readers will have a bit of catching up to do, particularly when learning to understand the unique shape-and-color hierarchy used to describe magic, but the history lesson woven into the first few chapters of the novel is more than lciffs to serve as an introduction cliffss Aronsdale.

I’m not sure that someone who has suffered that much abuse during his life would turn out as well as he did, but I liked exploring his relationships with his family and with Mel. A tried and true formula of a haunted hero and a warm-hearted heroine, combined with the magic of a kingdom you’ll want to visit again and again, make this book a true winner.
