Acair of Ceangail, youngest bastard son of the worst black mage in history, has followed in his father’s footsteps, wreaking havoc throughout the world and leaving powerful enemies in his wake. After a year of reparation, he owes a final bit of penance: twelve months spent working in a barn without using his magic.
Léirsinn of Sàraichte understands horses, stable work, and how to judge men’s hearts. When she starts seeing shadows where there should only be light, she knows there is evil afoot. Unfortunately, it's something she can’t fight on her own.
Acair’s attempts to aid Léirsinn only draw the notice of dangerous mages against whom he is currently defenseless. With only each other to rely on, Acair and Léirsinn find themselves suddenly in a race to save the world before it’s consumed by darkness.
White Spell was really beautiful. I love the world, I love the characters, I love the emotional journey, everything.
Kurland doesn't waste anything in this book, she doesn't mince words or use empty vocabulary to get her story told. Each statement and sentence has a purpose and meaning. Its wonderful.
Honestly I love Kurland's writing. She's a talented story teller.
Also I have to admit how much I liked Acair. I mean really. Who wouldn't like a guy like him by the end? That amused acceptance totally won me.
*Warning * *May contain minor spoiler*
Even at the conclusion the journey continues on and he's content to do so with the woman he loves at his side. Love it.
