Synopsis

What critics are saying:

"This is a richly imagined piece of work...the characters are engaging, and McPhail manages to do some very original things, which is often difficult in fantasy, given that so much work in the genre relies on Tolkienian stereotypes....some strong work here."  --Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards

About Cephrael's Hand:

"All things are formed of patterns..." And within the pattern of the realm of Alorin, three strands must cross:

In Alorin... three hundred years after the genocidal Adept Wars, the realm is dying, and the blessed Adept race dies with it. One man holds the secret to reverting this decline: Bjorn van Gelderan, a dangerous and enigmatic man whose shocking betrayal three centuries past earned him a traitor's brand. It is the Adept Vestal Raine D'Lacourte's mission to learn what Bjorn knows in the hope of salvaging his race. But first he'll have to find him.

In the kingdom of Dannym... the young Prince Ean val Lorian faces a tenuous future as the last living heir to the coveted Eagle Throne. When his blood-brother is slain during a failed assassination, Ean embarks on a desperate hunt for the man responsible. Yet his advisors have their own agendas, and his quest for vengeance leads him ever deeper into a sinuous plot masterminded by a mysterious and powerful man, the one they call First Lord.

In the Nadori desert...tormented by the missing pieces of his life, a soldier named Trell heads off to uncover the truth of his shadowed past. But when disaster places him in the debt of Wildlings sworn to the First Lord, Trell begins to suspect a deadlier, darker secret motivating them. Honor-bound to serve the First Lord in return for his life, Trell continues on his appointed path, yet each day unveils new and stranger secrets that eventually call into question everything he knows.

    An unexpected good read

    The book started out too haphazard and I almost stopped reading it as I was introduced and thrown around to too many characters. But as the story progressed and these different st ori lines came together the story gain form and in doing so grabbed my attention a pulled me along. I look forward to the next installment

    Facebook knows me.

    As you could gather from the title, the reason I discovered this book is because I'd liked Brent Weeks among other authors at one stage or another and I guess Facebook and advertising companies enlist the help of psychics or something along those lines this book was right up my street. If I'm ever looking for a good read, I always revert back to favourite fantasy plot. 'Unknowing male discovers he has lament powers and uses them yo battle evil alongside unlikely individuals with varying skills' - and this book delivers. The characters are rich, funny, understandable and dialogue flows really well. Usually I jump between series but I'm going straight onto the next one. Enjoy.
