Overview

The Man of His Word series debut—a novel “with enough fresh ideas to allow it to sit unashamedly alongside the great fantasy books of recent times” (Fantasy Book Review).
 
The tale of  Magic Casement  begins gently, even slowly, with Inosolan enjoying an idyllic childhood in a tiny backwater kingdom, too carefree and innocent even to understand that the feelings she shares with her friend Rap are more than friendship. Mystery, menace, and the gods appear in short order, and from then on the story grows in scope and power to straddle the world, and adversity thrusts rapid maturity on Rap and Inos. Populated by unforgettable characters—Aunt Kade, Little Chicken, Doctor Sagorn, and many more—Pandemia is an incredible world of credible people and infinite surprises.

This is a book that I have re-read at least 4 times. The story starts a little slow, but I think that helps you to really identify with the characters
