Master of Sorrows: The Silent Gods Book 1 - The Silent Gods (Hardback)Justin Call (author)
- Not available
The Academy of Chaenbalu has stood against magic for centuries.
Hidden from the world, acting from the shadows, it trains its students to detect and retrieve magic artifacts, which it jealously guards from the misuse of others. Because magic is dangerous: something that heals can also harm, and a power that aids one person may destroy another.
Of the Academy's many students, only the most skilled can become Avatars - warrior thieves, capable of infiltrating the most heavily guarded vaults - and only the most determined can be trusted to resist the lure of magic.
More than anything, Annev de Breth wants to become one of them.

A wonderful mix of the old and the new, and the ending had me begging for just one... more... chapter. I'm very impressed with Justin Call's debut, and I'm looking forward to seeing where this series goes.
If you're a fan of coming-of-age stories, magic schools, and the idea of what's right and what's wrong, then Master of Sorrows is the book for you.
