Daine sails to Cathak as part of a peace treaty delegation from Tortall. There she is amazed by strange and wondrous sights, including rooms filled with dinosaur bones and the Emperor Mage's zoo. But she also senses a darkness beneath all the gold and glitter, a darkness that lies in wait. At the same time, Daine is discovering that her own wild magic is growing again, this time giving her powers both great and terrifying.Daine says one of my favorite lines of all time in this book. So I'm just gonna get to that first so I can roll around on the floor for a second and then get back to the rest of this.
Emperor Mage is the third book in The Immortals series, which chronicles a time when the world is invaded by immortal creatures and a girl is born with a magical gift that could restore the very balance of nature.

"...Are you aware that the entire west wing and Astronomer's Tower are burning?"
She scuffed a foot ont he ground. "I thought they'd killed you. I lost my temper."
Numair's eyes danced. "Magelet, that is the greatest understatement I have heard in my life."

|PRETTY sure that's the Graveyard Hag *fear*|
The two of them just need to GET. IT. ON. already because this is just too much. I don't even care that he's twice her age. There's no better couple in the world.
And I feel like that could be the end of the review, but I suppose I'll keep going.
|Aaaaand that's a mammoth. Brought back from the dead.|
So last book, Daine did a lot of taking charge. She figures out her powers and really makes her life hers. This book, Daine is knows exactly who she is, who matters to her and what she's going to defend what matters to her - even if the powers she uses to defend what matters to her aren't exactly hers to start with.
|If anyone finds a set of this edition & wants to buy them for me for my birthday, I'd die of joy.|
