My Review :
This is a great story that draws you right in, I almost read it in one breath. It is about King Aldric and and his 5 daughters, his Queen dies when she gives birth to her 5th daughter leaving him with no son to follow him up and he promised his wife on her death bed something that later make things very hard.
His youngest daughter is Jael a very warm character that loves her father, Jael is his only hope at the end that he sees will help his Kingdom, he betroths her to his friend and at first Jael is in shock but she will do a lot for her dad and his Kingdom. He hopes that it will safe his Kingdom from the evil, cold and cruel husband of his oldest daughter, who is hungry for power,
This takes you into the beautiful world of Hy-Brasil a place I would love to be and see, how it goes from here you will have to read for yourself, but I think that C.G. Powell created a nice combination between fantasy and sci fi with this book. I absolutly loved it and I highly recommend it.
