The Demon of the Black Gate

An elemental demon created by forbidden magic is summoned by the wizard Rovinkar as a weapon of war. But he loses control of the demon at a critical moment and it is freed to ravage the land. Cerra of the Meadows has been blind since fever robbed her of sight at the age of seven. She is fated to confront the demon and becomes the only one who can restore it to its proper place.

Rovinkar seeks to regain control of the demon and eliminate Cerra, and she has no magic, only her wits, a faithful black cat ... and the ability to see what no one else can.

Absolutely worth the read. This story is woven like a tapestry. Each scene is detailed perfectly and you slide into the characters flawlessly. There was more than one night were I was so engrossed. This story will grip the reader from the first and hold them captive until the end leaving the reader wanting more. The unexpected twists the story takes will definitely stun you. The writing style, it was clear and easy to follow. It followed well, not once did I laugh at cheesy dialogue.
This story is definitely the start one hell of an epic adventure...

This is the second of GJ Scherzinger's novels that I have read and the imagery is really well done. Not only is the story well developed and interesting but while reading it, in my mind, I kept seeing the actors who would play the characters if the book were made into a movie. Became so involved in the story that the book was read in just 3 days. Nothing else got done but the book.
