Multi-volume author, Pauline M. Ross introduces us to the second book in the Brightmoon series, “Fire Mages”:
Kyra has always been drawn to the magic of spellpages. She’s determined to leave her small village far behind and become a scribe, wielding the power of magic through her pen. But a simple favour for her sister goes disastrously awry, destroying Kyra's dreams in an instant.
What went wrong? Devastated, she accepts an offer to find out from a stranger, who sees growing power within Kyra, potentially stronger than spellpages. While she struggles to understand her magic, she’s surrounded by the greed and ambition of the court, uncertain who to trust. The answers may lie within the glowing walls of the Imperial City, but its magic is strong and the unwary vanish without trace on its streets. Kyra will have to learn fast to survive.
The author has created a world of magic that is effortless to believe. Her writing is smooth, the action and dialogue are well balanced. There are hints that technology may be involved, and the romance seems very natural. Kyra is a young woman who has a plan; she is simple and forceful, determined to see the fulfillment of her desires.
The book is well written, the pacing and structure is excellent. The twists and turns of the plot kept me on the edge of my chair! This is such an enjoyable book, I am glad there is more to the series and you will be glad also!
One caution, the author is from Scotland and uses a few words in ways most Americans will not be accustomed to.
This book gets 5 stars!
