Genre: Fantasy Published: 2010 Series: Griffin Mage Read: January 2018 Second in the wonderful Griffin Mage trilogy. Gereint is bound by a magic compulsion, a geas, as punishment for his crimes. When the griffin’s desert spreads and destroys his town in the aftermath of war, he escapes, wanting nothing but to be released from the geas. He falls in love with the brilliant maker Tehre and is enslaved once again to help an ice mage’s last desperate fight against the griffins. Great world building and exploration of the nature of compulsion and consent. I enjoyed all three books in the trilogy. Highly recommended.
