Experience the fantasy and adventure of #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Brigg's first published novel--the thrilling start of the Sianim series...

After an upbringing of proper behavior and oppressive expectations, Aralorn fled her noble birthright for a life of adventure as a mercenary spy. But her latest mission involves more peril than she ever imagined.

Agents of Sianim have asked her to gather intelligence on the increasingly popular and powerful sorcerer Geoffrey ae'Magi. Soon Aralorn comes to see past the man's striking charisma--and into a soul as corrupt and black as endless night. And few have the will to resist the sinister might of Geoffrey and his minions.

So Aralorn, aided by her enigmatic companion, Wolf, join the growing rebellion against the ae'Magi. But in a war against an enemy armed with the powers of illusion, how do you know who the true enemy is--or where he will strike next?

I enjoyed delving into this world, into this story. In her foreword, she says that she "fixed" the intro, and then left most of the story alone. Leaving me to think, wow, how trite and predictable is this thing going to be? Not at all. It's a really interesting world, with really engaging characters.

For a "first book" it's fantastic... although compared with Briggs' later work, it's not as good, it is still a fun read with characters I loved!
