Child of a Mad God (Coven, #1) by R.A. SalvatoreFrom R. A. Salvatore, the legendary creator of Drizzt Do’Urden, comes the start of abrand new epic journey.
When Aoleyn loses her parents, she is left to fend for herself among a tribe of vicious barbarians. Bound by rigid traditions, she dreams of escaping to the world beyond her mountain home.
The only hope for achieving the kind of freedom she searches for is to learn how to wield the mysterious power used by the tribe’s coven known as the Song of Usgar. Thankfully, Aoleyn may be the strongest witch to have ever lived, but magic comes at price. Not only has her abilities caught the eye of the brutish warlord that leads the tribe, but the demon of the mountain hunts all who wield the Coven’s power, and Aoleyn’s talent has made her a beacon in the night.

If he never wrote another word, R. What you will need is a bit of nerve, because Corona is far from gentle, and the story he spins here goes to its darkest corners. Salvatore sets this new story on the frontier, far from the civilization represented by the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear, beyond even the far reaches the Wilderlands. Here, eight tribes live in uneasy peace—seven of them settled along the shores of Loch Beag, and the eighth squatting high on the cliffs of a volcano—battling the monstrous creatures that share the land, and trading with those strong or desperate enough to travel so far. The volcano-dwelling Usgar are a violent, warlike clan that survives on the spoils of horrific raids on the other settlements, taking what they need and enslaving prisoners. They are made nearly invincible in battle by the power of their witches, a coven of women who can control the magic of the Crystal God magic in Corona is almost entirely based on crystals of varying power and purpose. Its women are abused as a matter of routine, and its male warriors are expected to claim victory or die in battle, with no mercy for the wounded.
Salvatore has been writing fantasy for three decades and, in that time, has certainly made his mark on the genre. When anyone has been at their job that long, there is an understandable tendency to settle, to repeat, to fall back on familiar patterns, but Salvatore's latest — Child of a Mad God — is proof that he is still willing to take chances when it comes to his fantasy work.
