Content descriptions

General Note: "A Tor book."
Summary, etc.: When Aoelyn loses her parents, she is left to fend for herself among a tribe of vicious barbarians. Bound by rigid traditions, she dreams of escaping to the world beyond her mountain home. The only hope for achieving the kind of freedom she searches for is to learn how to wield the mysterious power used by the tribe's coven known as the Song of Usgar. Thankfully, Aoelyn may be the strongest witch to have ever lived, but magic comes at price. Not only has her abilities caught the eye of the brutish warlord that leads the tribe, but the demon of the mountain hunts all who wield the Coven's power, and Aoelyn's talent has made her a beacon in the night.

    *Starred Review* Fans of the prolific Salvatore (Hero, 2017) will be excited by the new realm in the series kickoff Child of a Mad God. Corona is explored separately through three different story lines, painting a well-developed world. Aoleyn is a child of the Usgar tribe, considered by the other tribes of Loch Beag to be either demigods or demons due to their brutal magic-fueled raids. As Aoleyn grows into a young woman, she develops an amazing knack for this magic and a rebellious view of her tribe's way of life. Talmadge, a trader, travels far and wide in the world, always returning to the peacefulness of the Loch Beag tribes—except when that peace is interrupted by the Usgar. Occasional interludes from the travel journal of the mysterious Aydrian Wyndon connect some dots while at the same time drawing the reader's curiosity to portions of the world that are barely mentioned. Readers will eagerly await the next entry to discover what more Aoleyn and Talmadge learn about their places in their shifting world and how, exactly, Aydrian Wyndon and other cultural mysteries fit in.
