Prequel to the other Mage titles by Karen Miller – a good but perhaps overlong yarn

A Blight of Mages - Karen Miller


 

This book leads into the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker and Fisherman's children series and explains about magic in those books. The plot dwells on Dorana's magic and mages and how it is misused by two very accomplished mages with devastating results. 

The characters are well-developed and the plot works well although it is perhaps overlong. The author writes well and the novel is engaging and enjoyable, even if fairly dark!
