Description from Goodreads:
A slave boy named Darik falls in with a pair of spies as the great city of Balsalom comes under siege by the armies of a dark wizard. They flee west to enlist the aid of griffin riders, an order of wizards, and a band of ascetic knights to come to the city's defense.
Meanwhile, a young queen named Kallia leads a heroic struggle to keep both her city and body free from the dark wizard's cruel embrace.
I was never completely sure who held the role of Main Character. Was it Darik, the slave boy from the beginning of the story? Was it Whelan, the outcast warrior who took him under his wing? Was it Kallia, the queen of Balsalom who made a deal with the devil to save her city?
Given how much "screen time" was given to the different characters, my bet is on Whelan or Kallia.
I was initially intrigued by the "Arabian Nights" vibe of the setting and characters, along with the Merlin-esque sorcerers, but the sub-plots seemed to shift with each chapter and I never felt like I got a handle on the overarching story line.
