Follow a renegade sorcerer off the edge of the map, in a thrilling adventure perfect for fans of Scott Lynch, Brandon Sanderson and Sebastien de Castell . . . Soldier, sorcerer and exiled nobleman Raythe Vyre has run out of places to hide. When the all-conquering Bolgravian Empire invaded, Raythe grabbed his daughter Zar and after taking part in a disastrous rebellion, they washed up on the edge of the continent. Now he's found a chance of redemption for himself and the precociously talented Zar: a map showing a hitherto unknown place that's rich in istariol, the rare mineral that fuels sorcery. Mining it will need people, but luckily there are plenty of outcasts, ne'er-do-wells and loners desperate enough to brave haunted roads through the ruins of an ancient, long-dead civilisation, to seek wealth and freedom. But the Bolgravian Empire is not about to let anyone defy it - and even out here, at the edge of the map, implacable imperial agent Toran Zorne has caught Raythe's scent. The hunt is on . . .… (more)

Having just returned to reading Steven Brust's "Vlad Taltos" series, I was in the mood for a fantasy with a comparable vibe, and the blurb on this book, which suggested an involved caper, seemed like a viable option. So, that said, I did enjoy this work well enough to look at the follow-on works. Having subjected his rag-tag gang of dissidents and refugees to an exhausting road trip, while dogged by the forces of the evil empire (...aren't they always), David Hair has his characters run into...but that would be telling! As I said, I'm looking forward to seeing how this scenario plays out, even though I think Hair undercuts himself by having too many characters. ( )
