This book chronicles a period in the life of Shade, a Vraad semi-immortal spellcaster. Shade is a case study of fantasy schizophrenia, he can not decide if he is good or evil.
The cast of characters and their colorful natures provides a rich setting for this tale. I enjoyed the Bedlam family although they were aptly named. Dysfunctional doesn’t begin to describe this well intentioned group of spellcasters.
The plot was complicated and involved and the action was non-stop. The wealth of characters and their dynamic nature made it difficult to identify the combatants and their allegiances.
This was a good fantasy, action and questing adventure.
I recommend the book.
