"Since leaving his homeland, the earthbound demigod Demane has been labeled a sorcerer. With his ancestors' artifacts in hand, the Sorcerer follows the Captain, a beautiful man with song for a voice and hair that drinks the sunlight. The two of them are the descendants of the gods who abandoned the Earth for Heaven, and they will need all the gifts those divine ancestors left to them to keep their caravan brothers alive. The one safe road between the northern oasis and southern kingdom is stalked by a necromantic terror. Demane may have to master his wild powers and trade humanity for godhood if he is to keep his brothers and his beloved captain alive"-- Provided by publisher.

It took me longer to read this than it should have because it took me longer to understand the rhythm and flow than it usually does, especially for such a short book.

Once I was in, though, I was in all the way. The characters in this novella are ridiculously well-rounded and interesting and the world is far more built than one would expect to encounter in something just over 200 pages.

This is fantasy, complete with a quest, magic, and monsters. There are brothers-in-arms, walking cross-country, and terrible weather. But it's not your typical elf+dwarf+half-human going to save the world, there's a lot more going on than something that simple.

My only complaint is the ending. I would have liked it to have been either less trite (though nebulous) or more robust. Or both!

A fascinating world and interesting (if somewhat confusing) tale, cut so very short by a deeply unsatisfying ending.
