4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Beginning..., 1 May 2006
This review is from: Doppelganger (Mass Market Paperback)
When a witch is born, a doppelganger is created. The mother normally kills the doppelganger on the fifth night during a ritual. The witch cannot master her powers until the twin is dead. Everyone knows this. Everyone accepts this.

When Miryo became a full witch, she was unable to use her magic. She must search the world to find her doppelganger, that has somehow survived, and kill it. Until then, Miryo must resist using her powers or they will kill her. But with each hour that passes it gets harder to keep from using those powers. Soon Miryo will be unable to resist. Miryo has another problem plaguing her mind too. Since the doppelganger has lived twenty-five years, will it still be a shell without a soul? And if it does have a soul, can Miryo bring herself to kill her twin?

Mirage is a bounty hunter. She lives by her wits and lethal fighting skills. This mission she must work with another hunter, Eclipse. This is not too difficult since she knows him well and they have worked together before. But this mission is a rare one. To accept it, Mirage and Eclipse must give a blood oath. They either succeed in the mission or die. Their task is to find out who assassinated Tari-nakana, a witch that was high in her Fire Order. After killing the person who did the deed, they must also go after the one who ordered it done. Sounds simple, but nothing is simple when it involves witches.

**** Hard to believe that this is Marie Brennan's debut novel. The author has crafted a divine world of magic and warriors. She gives just enough information to make it real. This could easily evolve into a wonderful series. Recommended. ****
