Tredan's Bane - Lita Burke

This has everything a good Fantasy should have. An interesting world, characters with individual personalities and a quest. A woman's magician husband goes missing and in her efforts to find him, she gets involved in magic herself and the politics that go with it.


Lita Burke is definitely one of the better Fantasy authors of this century, although I wouldn't compare her with the giants like Gaiman. She write a good, fast paced story and includes all the details and elements that make it work well.


The ending won't be what you're expecting. I like that in a book. It's a good, fun adventure.
