The Last Priestess – Review

Welcome back to the final day of Elizabeth Baxter’s Bite Sized Blog Tour…
An unusual and thought provoking tale.
Set in a fantastical realm where magic and steel protect the king’s men against enemies, this is the story of Maegwin, the last priestess of Sho-la.
From the opening chapter where Maegwin wakes on the morning of her execution, to the final chapter and its sinister last line, this novel takes the reader on an intriguing journey.
I enjoyed the descriptions of the different realms and how they are used by the mages. There is plenty of swordplay and action, and, as one has come to expect from Baxter, a convoluted plot that teases and perplexes the reader.
The theme of The Last Priestess seems to be the two sides of every situation, person, event. Maegwin is a priestess of Sho-la, a peace loving, forgiving goddess. But after the death of her sisters, Maegwin discovers the dark side of Sho-la – a vengeance driven demon.
Rovann, the king’s mage, always tries to do what is right but sometimes he has to kill in order to protect his master. His inner conflicts are fascinating to read; the guilt of driving his wife to suicide, the guilt of the murdered innocents at Sanford Moor…
And behind all the events lurks the mysterious presence of the Songmaker who will do anything to rule the land, even using Chaos to work his magic.
Two sides, two faces; the Realms against Chaos.
This is the first book in The Songmaker series and I hope Maegwin and Rovann can finally trust each other, find both Leo and the Prince and overcome both Hounsey and the Songmaker…
