Darkborn, Book 3
Synopsis: Magic dies with the mage, or so the Darkborn believe. That’s why Lady Telmaine Hearne has been condemned to death for sorcery. She’s escaped but is now bound with her mageborn allies for the Borders and war. Meanwhile, her husband, Balthasar, has learned of his family connection to the Shadowborn-and is fighting for survival and sanity as magic turns him against everything he holds dear.
The story is centered on a war between two clans. The persons we follow have all heard rumorsabout their allies, and these one aren’t really good. Each character will believethat their relatives are dead, changing the future events. I was quite surprised, while some people refuse to believe the death oftheir peers, others accept it with ease without trying to question theveracity.
I can’t, however, provide a real review of this volume as I didn’t understand the plot. But I liked the basic idea and the change of perspective. I may need to try the first books to really know what is happening. Yet I enjoyed the characters of Ishmael and Balthazar and I’m curious to learn more about them.
