The Book of Deacon - Joseph Lallo
This was an interesting book. I nearly gave up at one point when one of the characters proved a little too bizarre. However, it was well written and I kept going. It's worth reading and it's free on Kindle at the moment. The tale is about Myranda, who hates war and is not afraid to say so. She gets thrown out of several towns because of her opinions. The characterisation is good and you do feel for her on her lonely journey. The tale picks up and becomes very good when she finds a hidden band of people, learning magic. The characters here are excellent. There is a master for each magic, earth, fire, water, air, grey, black and white. The masters are excellent creations. It's a very entertaining read.
