I think I'm going to make it! When I joined the 50-Book Challenge in August, I knew I'd have to push to read 50 books by the end of the year.
Third in the Immortals series, Emperor Mage is my favorite so far. Daine is growing up and becoming more comfortable with her powers. One thing that has been consistent in these books is that the bad guys are really bad and the good ones are really good. This book gives more insight to Rikash (introduced in Wolf-Speaker) who is a good bad guy, if you get my meaning.
