Description

In the Raverran Empire, magic is scarce, and those born with power are strictly controlled - taken as children and conscripted into the Falcon Army. Zaira has lived her life on the streets to avoid this fate, hiding her mage-mark and thieving to survive. But hers is a rare and dangerous magic, one that could threaten the entire empire.

Lady Amalia Cornaro was never meant to be a Falconer. Heiress and scholar, she was born into a treacherous world of political machinations. But fate has bound the heir and the mage. And as war looms on the horizon, a single spark could turn their city into a pyre.

Set in a rich world of political intrigue and dangerous magic, The Tethered Mage is a spellbinding debut from a major new talent.

Critiques

"Charming, intelligent, fast-moving, beautifully atmospheric." (Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library)
" The Tethered Mage spins two captivating tales: a battle of wills between a feisty heroine and her bonded warlock, and a battle of wits between an empire and its rivals. Stuffed with intrigue, romance, and betrayal, this is a scrumptious read." (Vic James, author of Gilded Cage)
"Intricate and enticing as silk brocade. Caruso's heroine is a strong, intelligent young woman in a beguiling, beautifully evoked Renaissance world of high politics, courtly intrigue, love and loyalty - and fire warlocks." (Anna Smith Spark, author of The Court of Broken Knives)

C’est... lent...

L’histoire est pas mal mais tout est vraiment trop lent... il ne se passe quelque chose d’interessant qu’au 12ème chapitre... sinon la lectrice est bien :)

Half-decent intrigue with a cardboard heroine.

Struggled to finish this. Very long stretches without action. Very idiosyncratic performance. Shallow and superficial.
