The Spirit Lens

A Novel of the Collegia Magica

The Spirit Lens is a good, old fashioned fantasy book full of magic and mystery, every chapter of which I enjoyed and read non-stop from page one and had a hard time putting down.  The character building, world building and plot are wound together magically and beautifully, keeping the reader engaged from the start.  One thing, when I am reading a book with a lot of dialogue I like to read the conversations out loud and see if it's "realistic" (well, as realistic as in the language and back and forth, rather than the topic itself), and "The Spirit Lens" has hit the mark.  The characters and plot were amazing and definitely kept me engrossed and I escaped into the world of Sabria.

Book Blurb for The Spirit Lens

A brand new fantasy trilogy from an author who "brilliantly brings out her characters" (Denver Post).

For Portier de Savin-Duplais, failed student of magic, sorcery's decline into ambiguity and cheap illusion is but a culmination of life's bitter disappointments. Reduced to tending the library at Sabria's last collegia magica, he fights off despair with scholarship. But when the King of Sabria charges him to investigate an attempted murder that has disturbing magical resonances, Portier believes his dreams of a greater destiny might at last be fulfilled...
