The Mage's Daughter

The Mage's Daughter (Nine Kingdoms, Book 2) The Mage's Daughter by Lynn Kurland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What I liked: I really enjoy the magical aspect of this story. LK does a magnificent job of creating characters, worlds and stories that I just want to fall in to.

What I didn't like: This book focused a little more (too much in my opinion) on the romance aspect of the story. I'm not sure what the plot of the story was. There seemed to be no climax, the story just flowed and then ended.

Final Thoughts: I enjoyed this book, despite it's lack of direction. The story telling and fantasy aspects made up for the lack of plot.

Pub. Date: January 2008
Series: Nine Kingdoms Book 2

Synopsis: In the kingdom of Neroche, nightmarish creatures have been unleashed as weapons in a war of evil. Morgan the mercenary, daughter of a treacherous black mage, must fight against them-as well as for her very life. Miach of Neroche would risk his own life to save Morgan's, but he must do so at the peril of the realm, forcing dangerous choices in the deadliest of quests.

Sherry, I just read "Life on the Color Line: The story of a white boy who learned he was black," by Gregory Williams. He was recently named the president of the University of Cincinnati, so I have a vested interest. Anyway, it's a great read if you get the chance to add it to your long list of books!
