    Pauline M Ross is a master at creating multidimensional characters that you will be rooting for as you dive into her intelligent and highly creative plots This book was a page turner that quickly evaporated any respect I had for the next day as I stayed up later and later to find out what happened next.The main character, Fen, is middle aged, heartbroken, and has left her life on hold because of a fruitless dream And yet, she is also highly intelligent and strangely endearing She has secrets that have secrets, and as the plot unfolds she must reveal them all The magic system of this world that Ross is building in her Bright Moon Annals just keeps getting better Here the Mages of Benna call their magic connections and some of them may surprise you with the reach of their gifts There are ruins and mysteries added to this world, and I can t wait to see where these mysteries will lead Ross in her next installment The first person narrative is well done and pulls you slowly further into the mind of the main character as she admits and of her own reasons to herself The action was perfectly paced and gripping The side characters are well written, and the romance threads itself throughout the book as the backbone of the story.I would recommend this to anyone looking for an intelligent main character and complex plot Highly recommended I was given an ARC copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

    This third story in the series follows another set of characters in a new corner of the Brightmoon world While it can be enjoyed by new readers, the subtle references to the previous stories works as a pleasant reward for loyal readers returning to Pauline M Ross s fantasy world.Fen quickly became my favourite protagonist of the series by feeling very much like a real person She doesn t have any magical abilities, at least until she meets the titular mages , and her skeptical personality makes her relatable and easy to like As the mysteries and drama unfolds, I found myself drawn into the story and quite keen to know how it would all end While I found the pace of the final third to be a little slow, everything comes to a satisfying conclusion.If you re after an elegantly written fantasy romp sprinkled with a good dose of romance, then I d find The Mages of Benna and both previous stories easy to recommend.

    I really, really liked the premise of this book However, I couldn t really get a feel for the main character s personality, even though it was in first person Interesting events happened around her, but I couldn t get much of a feel for her reactions or emotional state The plot took a while to get started, but it was quite fast paced in a good way when it occurred It was political while still being suspenseful and interesting Still, I felt the narrative voice was somewhat detached than I m used to.

    Another intelligent, engaging tale from Ms Ross s Brightmoon Annals Prickly, secretive Fen is facing middle age without family, friends, status, or security in the rigidly ordered Holdings when her employer commits socially correct suicide after his fleet sinks Badly in need of new employment, Fen, a Recorder something like a secretary and business manager accepts a job with the new mages in town, sent from conquering Benna to grace the people of the Holdings with their magic A mage sent to another city disappears, and Fen s employers, along with her and the guard with whom she finds her life unexpectedly entangled, go to find out what happened to the missing mage The resulting political tangle exposes Fen s own secrets and forces her to finally, at the age of 40, confront what she really wants out of life.I always appreciate stories about mature characters as opposed to coming of age stories , so I enjoyed reading about Fen s midlife crisis, and her unexpected, unwelcome romance us old folks can fall in love, too The political plotline didn t engage me as much, mostly because I didn t feel like Fen had any really significant personal stakes in how it all played out other than that it would be bad for her country and people in general For me, the main story was Fen coming to terms with her past, her abilities, her desires, and herself I enjoyed this very much, even when I wanted to give Fen a good shaking and yell at her for being all gaga eyed over the wrong guy Still, the intrigue is intriguing and the action is exciting, and I couldn t put the book down Highly recommended if you like intelligent, original fantasy with a hefty dose of romance and characters who ve already experienced a good bit of living.

    Fast paced and psychologically tantalizing Intriguing twists and turns throughout the book causing the characters to continually to reveal of their intriguing and often colorful histories Highly uniquemain character who often appears as a complex enigma Highly recommend this book to other readers The Mages of Benna has the same highly creative flare that I found when reading The Fire Mages, also written by Pauline M Ross Very gifted writing style that I find both refreshing and fascinating.

    Book 3 of the Brightmoon series and we finally get a small sense of the connection between the books This takes place almost immediately after the events in book 2 and in a region mentioned in that book At the end of that book Benna has forced a treaty on the coastal holdings in the south and is sending mages there Book 3 starts in one of those holdings The FMC is Fen and she goes to work for a pair of mages and their retinue This includes Mal, one of their guards This book has one of my favourite tropes view spoiler Marriage of convenience In order for Mal to do his duties as a guard he must marry a local and Fen is chosen hide spoiler

    The Mages of BennaExcellent And dragons are rarely even mentioned The Dragon comment is because I am known to be partial to them and perhaps award an extra half star for an appearance This is a really good read And there seems to be an implicit promise of dragons in future volumes in the series It is possible there were dragons in previous volumes This is Book 3 of the series, but the first I ve read not the last, however.

    First loves not always good choices.Normally this would not be my first choice of reading, but I do occasionally enjoy a good fae or fantasy type book so this one looked interesting It did not disappoint, and kept me entertained and nearly glued to my book till it was completely read A very well put together story, with a few twists I did not expect Very well done
