Sarah and Ruith continue their quest to gather up the parchments containing Gairs evil spells, that are littered across the Nine Kingdoms. They pay lovely visits to all sorts of folks including the Dwarf king, and Morag the Witch Queen of Anwuallach. In the process they learn some very interesting facts about Sarah’s true heritage (because every fantasy protagonist is required to be an Orphan!).
I’m Not racing through this trilogy as I had been the earlier as well as the latter trilogies. Perhaps, this trilogy isn’t as good as the others, or perhaps, they’re getting a little formulaic. Also the humorous banter between the two protagonists (ie Miach & Morgan) is lacking.
