The story explores the ambiguities of good and evil through the tale of two half-brothers , Arithon and Lysaer , set in conflict.

Her lavish use of language invites the mind into a crafted realm of experience, with characters and events woven into a complex tapestry. Complex world and in-depth characters are definite bonus points.
