The second book in The Chronicler’s Awakening series introduces a number of new characters but one of my favorites is Dehset Tekin, a first year crystal mage student of the Royal Academy in Dracon. Born to a poor family, Dehset started at the Academy at eighteen, far older than most. The son of a blacksmith and tanner in Evkasa, Dehset is good with his hands but has had little formal experience with using magic.
So far he’s been dropped into a number of situations well beyond his comfort or experience and has had to struggle through using his logical mind and natural aptitude for artifice.
I look forward to continuing the story of Dehset and how his journey ties into that of Alishia’s and Lone’s.
