“…a stunning coming of age tale… The snow and adventure will sweep you up and carry you away!” -Phillipa Ballantine, author of Giest and Spectyr
Thomas Flarety has magic…
He used it to destroy a corrupt bishop who tried to steal all the world’s magic for himself. And so far, Thomas had managed to keep it a secret.
Then raiders attack the northern Duchy of Frostmire with fire and magic. Henry, son of the duke and Thomas’s friend, convinces Thomas to leave his studies and go help. But the church is also investigating the rumours of “witchcraft” in the north, and the Archbishop’s Envoy is as interested in Thomas as he is in the raiders. Now Thomas must use all his wits, his skills and his magic to figure out who the raiders are and how to stop them. He must protect Eileen, the girl he loves, from the intrigues of the duke’s court. He must find a way to keep the duke from turning him over to the Archbishop’s Envoy. And he must do it before the raiders destroy them all.
You Gotta Read Reviews: “I cannot recommend this book enough. I hope there are more to come in this series and will be picking up a copy of the first book in the near future.”
“Fresh and original, Buchanan weaves a tale of courtly intrigue in a winter land beset by dark magics and darker betrayal.” - author Rob St. Martin (amazon.ca)
“Cold Magics is a romping good time. High fantasy at its best. Subtle, fraught with tension (so much so I had to read fluff in order to sleep at night) and the action is wonderful.”
“Thats what it is all about ! Keeps you at the edge of your seat.”
“Don’t start this book at night if you have to be up early in the morning!”
