RIP-ROAR­ING MAG­I­CAL EPIC

Pretoria News - - METRO - BOOK num­ber three of | Daily Mail

The Nicci Chron­i­cles sees our epony­mous sor­cer­ess hero­ine holed up in the eter­nal city of Il­dakar, un­der threat of an­ni­hi­la­tion by a pet­ri­fied army – pet­ri­fied as in turned to stone.

Ex­cept the stone war­riors have wo­ken up after a mil­len­nium or so and their gen­eral is miffed at hav­ing missed cen­turies of po­ten­tial slaugh­ter.

This rip-roar­ing epic sweeps us from lofty ci­tadel to sea-girt pi­rate strong­hold, from pesti­len­tial swamp to hid­den li­brary.

And Nicci soon re­alises she must do more than res­cue her­self, or the city: she must gather her wits and her strong­est magic to save the world.
