Curse Of The Mistwraith: Wars of Light and Shadow Book One (The Wars of Light & Shadow)

Curse Of The Mistwraith: Wars of Light and Shadow Book One (The Wars of Light & Shadow) - Janny Wurts April 2015: After the powerful ending of Stormed Fortress, the way the story threads converge, I was so satisfied that I had to start Initiate's Trial, a short story set on the world of Athera centuries earlier than Mistwraith's opening, and some names and facts sounded familiar, it was more immediate to gain reading momentum and go past the first pages where the massive context-shaping leaves the reader a little disoriented, but soon follows the first unveiling of Arithon's demeanor and Lysaer's resolve as the Sorcerers give insight of the princes duty to Athera's plight.

I'm very glad I've discovered this fantasy gem of deepest complexity and stylistic brilliance, featuring unforgettable adult protagonists, a well-rounded cast of characters and a compelling, thought-provoking tale that engaged me at every level, and had me run to grab the following book, [b:The Ships of Merior|1040474|The Ships of Merior (Wars of Light & Shadow, #2; Arc 2 - The Ships of Merior, #1)|Janny Wurts|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328835514s/1040474.jpg|1589732].
