Reviews

Coe follows the Winds of the Forelands series (Weavers of War, etc.) with this absorbing trilogy opener set across the sea in the Southlands, where a mysterious plague is heightening tensions among three groups: the Qirsi, who wield life-draining magic; the Mettai, who cast spells with blood and earth; and the nonmagical Eandi. Decades earlier, the plague destroyed the Mettai villagers of Sentaya, leaving only young Lici alive. No one in Lici's adopted village of Kirayde realizes the depth of her mental scars until she disappears 64 years to the day after her arrival, intending to use blood magic to punish the Qirsi she feels were responsible for the plague. Fans will cheer on Forelands series hero Grinsa, a powerful but pacifist Qirsi, who ties the two series together as he strives to understand Lici's motivation and aims to find a peaceful resolution to the escalating Qirsi-Eandi strife that follows in her wake. (Dec.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Grinsa, hero of the "Winds of the Forelands" series (Rules of Ascension; Seeds of Betrayal; Bonds of Vengeance; Shapers of Darkness; Weavers of War), has been banished because he is one of the Qirsi Weavers, a user of multiple types of magic. With his family he travels to the southern continent, looking for peace. Instead, he finds a land filled with warring clans and, worse, a plague that attacks the powers of the Qirsi race. Turning his attention to a different part of his fantasy universe, Coe weaves another saga of high drama and personal heroism that should please fans of epic fantasy. A good choice for most fantasy collections, particularly where the first series had a following. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

""The Sorcerers' Plague" satisfies with sharply-drawn characters and an intense, intelligent plot. I eagerly await the next book of the Southlands." --Kate Elliott, bestselling author of "Spirit Gate ""Coe's new series is his best yet: appealing characters, twisty plot, and absorbing world."--Sherwood Smith on "The Sorcerers' Plague"
