*Starred Review* In the first volume in a new trilogy, Akers introduces readers to an epic fantasy world sure to please anyone waiting impatiently for the next George R. R. Martin or Brian Sanderson. In a world that suggests a combination of the time periods in which the War of the Roses and the Reformation took place, the Celestial Church has wrenched control away from the old pagan gods and is tenuously helping to keep the peace between two warring factions, the Tener and the Suhdra. The series opens ominously, setting the dark and dangerous tone as a nefarious stranger sets loose a pagan god made of smoke who possesses its victims as it begins to spread into the countryside. Meanwhile, the hero from the previous war, Malcolm Blakeley, is being recruited by the Church to help keep order in the land as hostilities increase. But this is a new kind of war, one that pits old gods, new religion, long-held secrets, political alliances, and prejudices against one another. It is up to a new breed of heroes, ones who can think for themselves, like Malcolm's son, Ian, and the young female huntress from House Adair, Gwen, to protect them all. But are their tactics too unorthodox to work? Full of strong world building, cinematic and frequent battle scenes, high adventure, great characters, suspense, and dramatic plot shifts, this is an engaging, fast-paced entry in a popular subgenre.
