In a single torturous chapter, young nobleman Tradain liMarchborg loses his family, wealth and freedom. He is sentenced to a lifetime in a hellish prison. By chance, he escapes after growing up in the prison, and devotes the remainder of his life to revenge. This was a gripping book, but Tradain’s methods of vengeance are ridiculously intricate and convoluted. ( )

The first half of the book moved along nicely, if slowly. Then the end just sort of went 'thud' and lay there like a dead fish. ( )

A fun little story, showing the personal toll that revenge takes. It is set in a world where religious orthodoxy condemns rich landowners, so the church-state can acquire the lands in retribution.

Book description
Magic is entirely forbidden in Upper Hetzia, a town scarred by the Sortilegious Wars. Those who are suspected of practicing magic are executed in the infamous White Tribunal. Tradain liMarchborg lost his father to the White Tribunal, and now seeks vengeance. He pawns his soul to conjure powers that will allow him to avenge his father's death and returns to the capital city of Lis Folaze. There, Tradain falls in love with Glennian liTarngrav, who has a different agenda. Their union could redeem a nation or cost them their lives.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553575813, Mass Market Paperback)

In a land pockmarked with the grim relics of a long-ago war live a people consumed by the fear of magic. Those suspected of sorcery die at the hands of the infamous White Tribunal. And death and terror will reign until a young man pawns his soul for the temporary power to destroy his murdered father's false accusers.

Now, disguised as a foreigner and with his time measured by the sands of a magical hourglass, Tradain liMarchborg enters the capital city of Lis Folaze, stronghold of the White Tribunal's power. Here his path will cross that of the beautiful Glennian liTarngrav, whose own mission will lock them together in a vortex of love, revenge, death, and enchantment that could save a land...or thrust them both--as Tradain's hourglass sands run out--into eternal torment.
