"When a witch is born, a doppelganger is created. For the witch to master her powers, the twin mush be killed. But what happens when the doppelganger survives?"Miryo now needs to find and kill her doppelganger, Mirage. Only when she finds her she cant do it they make an agreement that they'll try and find a way for the both of them to live.
"So how about this? We promise not to kill each other. Instead, we look for other answers, other ways out of this they may have ignored or missed" She paused, biting her lip as she watched the other woman's reaction. "And if it looks like time is running out, we'll reconsider."Mirage and Eclipse still need to find out why a high rank witch was killed along the way they all find out that the reason she was killed is a common link to finding out how to save the life of the doppelganger.
There was action within the first three pages. There was witty dialog ten pages in. Theres adventure, magic, political struggle, challenges and conflicts the characters must face. I'm finding myself rereading some parts so that I can give you a better review other than just telling you what its about and that I enjoyed. However at the same time I don't want to put very many spoilers in here for those who haven't read it. I love the ending and if I tell you it'll spoil it if you haven't read it. It doesn't necessarily end with a cliffhanger but it can definitely be taken into the next book. And though Mirage and Eclipse are like brother and sister, I think I could see Miryo have a liking for Eclipse and though they are the same person I wonder if anything happens in the sequel.
Its got strong characters, both main and supporting, good detail as far as the settings, looks, and events. Often times you'll get inner thoughts of either Mirage or Miryo, combined with the dialog some is witty or funny or threatening, and my favorite as I am often time too, sarcastic.
It had been three years since Mirage visited Silverfire, and a full five since she had lived there, but she still remembered every tree and stone in the lands surrounding the compound.
I bloody well ought to. We spent enough time doing training exercises out here.Note if you get this book there is a glossary in the back explaining a few terms or who and what people are or places.
