The first sentence catches my attention. I am a historian, and it is so true.
The tale rolls along in gently swaying prose which tells of everyday life. Links between the characters gradually unfold; snippets of scenes follow each other through the pages, revealing the characters little by little against a rich tapestry of scenes.
You have to be alert and take notice of which is present and which is past; and allow yourself to go gently with the flow of fantasy.
Goose bumps travel up your spine when Ryanna feels "that shovel of snow slide down her back." You ride with her as her mind takes up position behind a dragon's crest, and she rides over mountains and sea, her ethereal fingers tightening in concern.
You look over Tariq's shoulder as he sends psychic lines of thoughts to vague images through swirls of black ink on tiles. For scrying and ensorcelment permeate the story.
You travel with Padraig on his many adventures as he seeks the True King and spreads the faith under the guise of a herbalist.
There are so many links to master, I must start again with the benefit of hindsight. Seldom do I do this to a book, but the easy style and flow of the writing is such a pleasure that the repetition is no burden. And guess what? I immediately want to start again for the third time! There is so much to savour in this beautifully written book. I recommend you read it. And I'm looking forward to the sequel.

The author did a good job of developing a story that was full of different plot lines and twist. In addition, it takes place on two time lines. Even with this it came together in the end and all the stories begin to fit in place.
I liked the way Lela Markham developed her characters. They came alive as the story progress and their personalities emerged. They became more real and easy to identify with as their place in the tale developed.
I liked The Willow Branch by Lela Markham and recommend it.
