Description

Life imitates Art--literally--when every stroke of a painter's brush changes the fabric of reality....

"Original in concept and superior in execution."--
Booklist

"Fresh and intelligent...sheer brilliance."--
Flint Journal

"A rich and entertaining tapestry...."--
Knoxville News Sentinel

"We are held spellbound...mesmerizing."--
Romantic Times

The authors have devised a fascinating setting based on medieval Italian, Spanish and Portuguese models for a novel of love and power -- both political and sorcerous. This is one of the few genre books I've seen in which an effort is made to take religion into account as a social force, though, even here, it's watered down. The story spans centuries and centers on the limner Sario Grijalva, whose love for the arts he has mastered is corrupted by his egotism. Grijalva's ruthless use of sorcery can, however, be thwarted by chance events, and this novel thus avoids the pitfall of the unbelievably powerful (and dull) character. Many stories -- love stories, Machiavellian thrillers, coming-of-age stories and stories of magic -- are tightly wound together in this suspenseful, enthralling one-volume trilogy (yes! you get the whole story in one book!); the painterly focus is unusual and interesting, too.
