A Tapestry of Spells by Lynn Kurland, 362 pages, read by Kira, on 03/02/2013

In the 2nd Trilogy in the Nine Kingdom Series we are introduced to Morgan’s sibling Ruith and Sarah of Doire.  Presumed dead, Ruith has been masquerading as an old grumpy mountain mage.  Sarah of Doire bangs on Ruith’s door requesting help in apprehending her brother Daniel who has set out to destroy the world one mage at a time.  Ruith has suppressed all his magic, Sarah is presumed to have some magic, but evinces none.  On their way to find Daniel, they collect a rag-tag group of injured mages, each with their own quirks, who insist on joining the quest.

  A-Tapestry-of-Spells-9780425232132As in her other books, the narrator changes with each chapter, alternating between the female protagonist, and the male protagonist.  I am impressed with Kurland’s ability to maintain a cohesive narrative, never having to double back in time with either narrator.

Not as fast paced as Kurland’s first Nine Kingdoms trilogy but very enjoyable nonetheless.
