The second sight of her family but the magical land where she will go with the sailor holds far greater marvels and terrible perils that even she cannot see For she carries secrets within her that even she doesn't know secrets that could change the fate of the fabulous magical world that calls her home. I am sometimes suspicious of fantasy stories based on people from our world crossing into A Magical Land This book is an excellent example of that trope working wellBridget is smart tough and competent and it's a good thing too as she is plunged into a world where magic is rife and promises mean than she is used to She has to learn to navigate with the dubious assistance of the treasonous sorcererThere are three seuels and each of them moves through a different part of Isavalta replete with its own mythos and magical rules characters and peoples and semi peopleThere is romance but it's not easy or obvious There is adventure and heartbreak and heroism in ample measure And at the end I think Bridget is someone I would be proud to knowRead if You are looking for a great story about a woman who knows who if not what she is Also it's only 3 right now What are you waiting forSkip if You don't feel like you can commit to four books right now Also read Wheel of the Infinite

A Sorcerer's TreasonWorld where magic reigns and where she is incredibly destined to play a key role in a power struggle between the Dowager Empress A Sorcerer's PDF and her foes Isavalta where magic can be found in the pattern of knots on a string the colors of a dress or even smoke in the air beckons to her Bridget has. I'm impressed with Sarah Zettel's ability to create worlds ranging from her light adult murder mysteries in a vampirechef world to YA historical fiction set in the 1776 court of King George 1 and another YA historical fiction with fairies set during the Dust Bowl period in America And now she builds a fantasy world with Russian Indian and Chinese motifs whose court intrigues and political upheaval pull Bridget from her lonely world faithfully tending the lighthouse on Lake Superior to a world of sorcerers magical creatures and souls of the dead Isavalta where magic can be found in the pattern of knots on a string the colors of a dress or even smoke in the air The story moved slowly for me at first as Bridget tries to make sense of what is happening moving from her hard but useful life where she knows her place through The Land of Death and Spirit where Baba Yaga crow people and the Vixen appear to the Isavalatan court of the Dowager Empress and her imprisoned Phoenix Bridget learns her gift of second sight is just an indication of the greater power that awakens in the alternate world of Isavalta Unwilling to be a pawn Bridget struggles to understand what is going on how magical powers work and who she should trust Author Zettel did a good job creating fully rounded characters whose actions are hard to judge as right or wrong given the motivations that govern them I felt adrift at first wanting someone to identify with and that was Bridget to begin with except that we got so little of her as the world building and character introductions were happening And the powerful spirit world of the crows and foxes and Baba Yaga the whys and wherefores and rules were hard to follow Maybe in the succeeding books their relationship with people and the rules and limitations of the use of magic will be better delineated It wasn't until the last third of the book that I began to have a sense of who I trusted and who I wanted to succeed Perhaps that is a literary strength that the reader is experiencing the same uncertainty the main character is dealing with but it kept me unconnected with the story I sort of slogged through the book at first but then got much involved as the plot picked up and Bridget made some decisions about who she trusted and what she needed to do It really was a two star book for me until that last third but if you like epic fantasy you'll probably give it stars than I did
