My Dusty Reads this week is Sorcery Rising by Jude Fisher. I picked this book up at the Lifeline Book fair in January, and was waiting until I had the whole trilogy before reading it. I have since bought the other two books, but never found the time to read the book. I hear it is a good story, but I have too much to read so it’s not really a high priority.
The Allfair: A place for old enemies to put aside their differences for a time and come together for trade and revelry.
Katla Aransen and her family have sailed to the fair to trade their goods; the Vingo clan have travelled from Istria to purchase a bride for their appalling eldest son; Tycho Issian to sell his daughter to the highest bidder; and King Ravn Asharson, Stallion of the North, comes seeking a wife, while others seek his downfall.
But there is disquiet in the air. For centuries, Elda has been bereft of magic; but this is the year something has changed. Magic is returning to the world, and no one will remain unchanged.
