I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, M.K. Wiseman for the eCopy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

The Kithseeker Cover

France, 1680 A.D.

Liara’s defense of the Wizard Nagarath has rendered Anisthe incantate—bereft of all magick—but even this has failed to guarantee Liara’s safety. The death of the war mage would seal Liara’s own fate, and so the wizard and his bookminder must keep him in their sites and yet as far away from themselves as possible.

With nothing but a storybook and a hunch, Anisthe has set off on a journey across Europe, aided by his half-fey manservant, in search of a legendary mirror that contains the most powerful magick ever known. Although the stuff of fairytales, the merest possibility of its truth embarks Nagarath and Liara on a race to discover the mirror before it falls into the hands of Nagarath’s lifelong foe. Both know should he lay claim to that power, Liara would be at the mercy of her father-in-magick and his lust for power, and not even Nagarath could save her.

Thus, the pair find themselves at the court of the Sun King, a world hostile to magick users, hopelessly surrounded by agents whose sole purpose is destroy them. Uncertain whom is friend or foe, with Anisthe nipping at their heels, they must unearth the mirror before its evil is released, or worse, lays claim to Liara’s magick as well and brings doom upon them all.

My Review

Read the first book and then read this one… I was curious to know what would happen in the story of these characters, where would book two would go, and I was excited to continue the adventure.

Magic, fantasy and the touch of historical fiction to it. We are following Liara, Nagarath and Anisthe in a journey through Europe, France nonetheless.

My interest in the characters has not stopped, I found them compelling. It did help that we could read their thoughts thanks to the various POVs. Each one of them had a voice and I could connect with them and understand what was going on, even with the changes of perspectives.

I liked that we had more action and movement in this book, compared to the previous on. It was exciting to read the main characters going through the journey and interacting with others. It felt dynamic in a different way.

Overall, I loved that we keep knowing more the characters and the world. And I loved the mix of historical elements and fantasy, since they are two genres I love, it was good to see them combined.
