Everything has a price, and in C.S. Friedman's 1st book in the Magister Trilogy, the cost of magic is life itself -- each and every spell drains somebody's life force. In King Danton Aurelius's realm, female witches eat away at their own lives with each spell-casting, while the all-male Magisters gain near-immortality by drawing power from others' demises. When a powerfully talented young woman, Kamala, flouts ancient law and secretly trains as a Magister, her fate becomes intertwined with that of the king's son, the mysteriously ailing Prince Andovan. Booklist praises the novel's "powerful, intricate plotting and gripping characters."

Friedman's dark fantasy novel features a unique magic system, and offers an interesting commentary about how men and women view power differently. A fast-moving plot and fascinating characters both help to overcome Friedman's sometimes uneven writing style.
