THE EYE OF NIGHT
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
THE EYE OF NIGHT is a heartwarming epic fantasy of three people out to save their world.
Hwyn is a scarred, maimed dwarf with a kind heart, the voice of an angel, and magic to offset her shortcomings. Ex-priest, shipbuilder and son of a merchant, Jereth is on a quest to sacrifice his life after his entire family is drowned at sea. Lady Trenara is the beautiful half-wit that Hwyn protects. These three are thrown together by chance, and stay together by choice.
On a pilgrimage from the south to the troubled north, Hwyn brings the jewel Eye of Night. Legend says the Eye brings change—but whether it's the end of the world or the end of the troubles is unclear.
In her debut novel, Ms. Alama delivers crisp dialogue, wonderful writing full of pathos and surprises, and clearly presents a complicated theology integral to the story. (Jul., 464 pp., $5.99)
