Patricia Briggs~~ 4 1/2 and 5 Star Reviews
Shape-shifting mercenary Aralorn returns home to find her father, the Lyon of Lambshold, not dead as believed by all, but in a sort of deep coma induced by some sort of dark magic. With her companion Wolf by her side, she finds out that the Magi are using her father as a conduit to destroy her and Wolf.
While she is used to a life of battle and adventure, she finds herself not only in the most difficult battle of her life with the stakes being not only her life, but the lives of Wolf and her father.
Briggs has again created a rich and vibrant magical world in which her unique characters thrive. This is a story that Briggs wrote several years ago, before she enjoyed her current success. It is proof that we, as readers, embraced the correct author. I hope she continues and creates an ongoing series with these characters. This reviewer will be first in line.
