Plot Summary

In a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix was nearly driven insane by her powers. She lived as a fugitive, disguised as a human, channeling her gifts for war into stone-magery. When she was discovered, her friends and neighbors accepted her, but warily. Not so the mage who arrives from the Council of Seraphs, who could be her greatest ally—or her most dangerous foe. And when her long-gone sister, Rose, is revealed to still be alive, Thorn must make a choice—and risk her own life in the process.

Not overly good but the story arch for the whole series is actually intriguing. This is probably my least favorite book in that there are a host of characters that never seem to build into anything more. The ending feels a bit rushed also in that Thorn finds her sister and then after the next chapter the book is done. She had been looking for her for years and all we get is exchanged glances. And what about the High Host? Are they really aliens trying to take over the world or are the actually angels? So, many possibilities with characters and ideas that have been brought up never get flushed out. I don't know if this is the last book and this is only going to be a trilogy but that's what I've heard and that is aggravating if it is true. If you don't mind books not really tying up any loose ends then give these a try but if you like stories to come to a conclusion then stay away.
