One of the best fantasies I've read!
This is the third book in the Mistress of Beasts saga as well as the first book that I've read (in the series, not of all time). Honestly, I'd never even heard of these books before and I can't figure out why! Unlike most fantasies, this one isn't dry and filmy. It's action-packed and full of adventure! I can't get enough! I laughed. I cried. I clapped my hands with glee. I mourned the end of the book.
So what's it about? Well...there's just too much to sum it up in a small paragraph! Even the back of the book doesn't do it justice. We have this group of people....sort of people...they're the good guys. We have an evil sorcerer and a few other guys with him who might be the bad guys...but we don't really know who the bad guy is until the end. We have bad guys being good guys. Anyway, so the bad guys have decided to divide & conquer all the good guys in order to take over the 'world'. Will all the good guys survive?! OK, seriously this doesn't do the book justice. Magic, mayhem, romance...it's all here. Best of all, one of the main characters is a GRIFFIN!!! YES!!! There are not enough griffins in books!
This was a quick, engrossing read that I strongly suggest to all my friends. I couldn't put it down and I was so sorry to see it end. I've already put the first two books, Wizard's Secret and Chasing Demons, on my wish list. Geerdes is definitely a new favorite author and I'm so thankful she was brought to my attention!
