The Coldfire trilogy tells a story of discovery and battle against evil on a planet where a force of nature exists that is capable of reshaping the world in response to psychic stimulus. This terrifying force, much like magic, has the power to prey upon the human mind, drawing forth a person's worst nightmare images or most treasured dreams and indiscriminately giving them life. This is the story of two men: one, a warrior priest ready to sacrifice anything and everything for the cause of humanity's progress; the other, a sorcerer who has survived for countless centuries by a total submission to evil. They are absolute enemies who must unite to conquer an evil greater than anything their world has ever known.

May be a bit spoilerish Twelve centuries ago the planet Erna was colonized by mankind what was a big mistake as it turned out later. First the colonists didn´t know about the many earth-quakes and the "fae", an energy which materializes human emotions to demons. The starship was destroyed as wer...

2.0
The prologue was absolutely the best part of this book, but over the course of a few hundred pages any excitement I felt had been whittled down to nothing. There is SO MUCH repetition, it really started to grate on me. The magic system started out awesome and terrifying, but by the end (with a reall...

I enjoyed it for the most part. I thought most of the characters were interesting, particularly Tarrant and Vryce. Unfortunately, the exception is Chaini who's just kind of there. Vryce and Chaini flirt a bit and somehow that's sort of kind of maybe love? The person he's attracted to isn't there for...
