UK Kirkus Review »
A superb storyteller and creator of an entirely credible fantasy world, Fisher has the reader hooked from the first chapter in this enthralling trilogy. Protagonist Galen is a relic master, living in fear of the Watch. For reasons he is too afraid to tell anyone, he must get to Tasceron, once city of the Makers, now a smoking ruin. In the second book, Galen, and his scholar, Raffi, are compelled to undertake a dangerous mission for the Makers, and Carys, the Watch spy they met in the first book, tries to unravel her past. The final exciting climax presents the three with their greatest challenge yet, to find the Makers' most powerful tool, the Coronet of Flain. (Kirkus UK)
