- Long Synopsis:
- Kellen Tavadon, son of the Arch-Mage Lycaelon, thought he knew the way the world worked. His father, leading the wise and benevolent Council of Mages, protected and guided the citizens of the Golden City of the Bells. Then Kellen found the forbidden books of Wild Magic-or did they find him! Their magic felt like a living thing, guided by the hearts and minds of those who practiced it and benefited from it. Questioning everything he has known, Kellen discovers too many of the City's dark secrets. Banished, with the Outlaw Hunt on his heels, Kellen invokes Wild Magic-and finds himself running for his life with a unicorn at his side. Rescued by a unicorn, healed by a female Wildmage who knows more about Kellen than anyone outside the City should, meeting Elven royalty and warriors in a world full of magical beings-Kellen both revels in and fears his new freedom. All the Mages of the City agreed that practicing Wild Magic corrupted a Mage. Turned him into a Demon. Would that be Kellen's fate? Deep in Obsidian Mountain, the Demons are waiting. Since their defeat in the last great War, they've been biding their time, sowing seeds of distrust between their human and Elven enemies. When the Demons rise to make war, there will be no alliance between High and Wild Magic to stand against them. And then all the world will belong to the Endarkened. From the Bookjacket

Reviews of Outstretched Shadow (The Obsidian Trilogy, Book 1) (1 review)
Reviewer: Toni Clavie
This is the first book by Mercedes Lackey that I have read.The descriptions are vividly written from the city of Golden Bells, to the descriptions of the elvin lands. This was a story I could get lost in, and I am intending to read through the rest of the trilogy.There are some parts of the book that seem to have scanning errors, and they can be distracting, but the majority of the book is scanned very well.
