Daughter of Redwinter

Tor. (The Redwinter Chronicles, Bk. 1). Jun. 2022. 352p. ISBN 9781250811714. $27.99. FANTASY
When Raine rescues an injured woman from the snow and takes her back to the beleaguered fortress of Dalnesse, she had no idea that it would set off a chain of events that would change her life forever. The rescued woman was fleeing from Redwinter, home of the Draohin, warrior magicians. Now Raine has no choice but to enter Redwinter herself, where she discovers power and secrets abound. She has a bigger secret, however: she can see and speak to the dead. Her power carries a death sentence but may save her nation. A Scottish-inspired setting, complex magical system, and engaging characters create a high-stakes, high-action story. The pacing starts slow and there is a lot of information, but the setup pays off with building tension, twists, and betrayals.
VERDICT McDonald (“Raven’s Mark” trilogy) begins an immersive new fantasy series, good for fans of George R. R. Martin and Brandon Sanderson.
