let this be a lesson to the fantasy writer: if you want to kill all fun in your book and leave readers wondering why they're still reading for about 250 pages, then you need to create a character with limitless potential who is physically superior to all other characters and then have that character get injured to the point where he pretty much can't do anything. oh yeah, then just kill him off because it's not like the reader in invested in his story anymore anyway.

that's not fair. i felt betrayed.

that being said, this was actually a great book. i wouldn't have this kind of reaction if it weren't. ( )

I think this is the only Rensai book that I have read. I found it good, but sluggish in spots, and I sometimes had trouble following the story. My husband likes them, though. ( )

Epigraph
In an age of Change
When Chaos shatters Odin's ward
And the Cardinal Wizards forsake their vows
A Renshai shall come forward.

Hero of the Great War
He will hold legend and destiny in his had
And wield them like a sword.
Too late shall he be known unto you:

The Golden Prince of Demons.

                             ---Crypts of Kor N'rual
Dedication
For Janny Wurts
who helped make the dream a reality,
and for
The Thomas Jefferson Medical Class of 1985
who waited so patiently,
each believing in his own way.
First words
The Eastern Wizard, Shadimar, did not know how long he had sat with his elbows propped on the table in the Cardinal Wizards' Meeting Room and his bony chin cupped into his slender, wrinkled palms; but his hands had gone numb and long since ceased to register the cottony cascade of his beard between his fingers.
PROLOGUE

Ten-year-old Rache Kallmirsson leapt and kicked and spun, his sword slicing arcs through the deepening dusk.
CHAPTER 1

The Southern  Wizard, Carcophan, strode through the rough-hewn corridors of the castle in the Eastern royal city of Stalmize.
