I love Ginn Hale's writing but this isn't her best book. While both Elezar and Skellan are interesting characters, the plot is slow and draggy and doesn't get better until two other familiar characters appear. The improvement is dramatic, but then the book ends. Hoping for better with book two. ( )

Comparing to the first two books, Elezar's tale is a weak one. If you remember, he is Javier's best friend, who along with Atreau is forced to flee from an enraged widow after Atreau messes uo with her husband in a truly spectacular manner. While Atreau pretends to be Fedeles, Elezar is his varlet, and as such is free to conduct discreet sensitive missions for his Prince. Along the way he meets a ragtag street witch, Skellan, and the pair of them do well saving each others lives and saving the city from an awakened demon. The problem is that it's all. so. slow.... Plus Elezar as a Cadeleonian doesn't really go through the same struggles to accept his own love for other men the way Javier had to with Kiram. I don't know... It was muddled until the very end, where it redeemed itself slightly.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Five years after abandoning the Sagrada Acedemy, Elezar Grunito has become infamous in the sanctified circles of noble dueling rings for his brutal temper and lethal blade. Men and women of all ranks gather to cheer and jeer, none of them knowing Elezar's true purpose. But a violent death outside the ring marks Elezar as a wanted man and sends him into hiding in the far northern wilds of Labara. There, creatures of myth and witchcraft--long since driven from Cadeleon--lurk in dark woods and prowl the winding streets. Soldiers and priests alike fear the return of witch-queens and even demons. Elezar soon learns that magic takes many forms, some too alluring to resist, others too terrible to endure. But just as he begins to find his place in this strange new country, the past he left behind along with his school days returns to challenge him once again.… (more)
