Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380781271, Mass Market Paperback)Mage Heart's narrator is a young woman taught magery in a patriarchal culture which (of course) doesn't permit women to be mages. Routley's fantasy-Renaissance-and-magery plot questions our expectations of romance and fantasy stereotypes, and her portrayals of Dorian and the people around her---friend and foe alike---have more depth than many established writers'. The center of the story is Dorian's inner struggle to reconcile her experiences and her training, and the unified resolution of the action and Dorian's conflicts is satisfying. Like all first novels, this standalone has rough spots, but they're forgivable in such a good story.
