Blurb: Master fire mage Alegan Ilsace heads to the Fire Stars, great volcanic islands in the Vensalin Ocean, to harness the untamed power of Toa. He needs the power to snatch his family from death. But all of his dreams lie in shambles when he fails and pays for his impertinence in blood.
Catli, Koan of his village and speaker for Toa, finds a stranger injured on the mountainside and drags him home. As Alegan’s past comes to light, Catli is drawn in by his bright, though understated, nature. Catli would rather spend his days doing his duties to the village and learning about the intriguing mage he rescued, but then a usurper strikes.
One way or the other, Catli’s days are full of Alegan. Whether they continue on Toa or have to make their way out in the world depends upon the strength of Catli’s power.
Review: Alegan, lost in the grief of his dead family for four years, attempts a dangerous thing by asking a god to resurrect his family. He pays a price for the asking. Catli nurses him back to health as the pull between them grows stronger. Another fire mage challenges him for his title and loses.
Although this was an interesting story I felt bored with it at times. The descriptions of the village were quaint and peaceful. Calti seemed nice and caring for his people. I was glad Alegan found someone to ease his pain and move forward in his life. This book does connect with other two but only at the end.
