Tyrus of Kenatos has made it his life’s work to banish the plagues that ravage the kingdoms. He believes the answer to ending the devastation lies in the Scourgelands. Yet, Tyrus’s first expedition into the cursed woods failed after being defeated by mysterious minions who stalked and killed most of his band.

Now a prisoner in his own tower, Tyrus has summoned his nephew Annon—a Druidecht possessing innate magic called the fireblood—on the guise of finding a hidden treasure with which to purchase his twin sister Hettie’s freedom. But in reality, Tyrus is using his niece and nephew, and their magic, as an opportunity to escape and resume his desperate mission. And to aid them, he has enlisted the warrior-monk Paedrin—who is almost as green as the siblings when it comes to traveling these troubled lands. The trio is determined, and along the way they grow to trust each other—and new additions to the group—in order to accomplish their missions…whether or not those missions are one and the same.

But the Arch-Rike—ruthless ruler of Kenatos—has learned of these plans, and has sent the fearsome Kishion to destroy all those that oppose him. Now Tyrus and his unwitting allies must face down not only the plague, but this new enemy—and fulfill their quest before a fresh horror is unleashed on the world.…

This is one of those books that once I put it down, it was pretty much gone. There was nothing that grabbed me, made me think, or felt challenging. It's fine for another fantasy world saga, but I never felt invested in any of the characters. They felt very one-dimensional, which is maybe why it was so easy for one man to trick them all into doing what he wants. But thank goodness, he's on the good side, right? Because otherwise most of our characters would already be dead.

Giving one character the sudden ability to have perfect recall allows him to make all sorts of underlying connections, as if people with perfect memories suddenly also have complete insight into the motivations of everyone around them. If you are in to this type of book, I don't think it's bad. It's just that it's not that good either.
