Detailed Plot Synopsis of Vincalis The Agitator



Aspect, Mar 2002, 13.95, 390 pp.

    For three millenniums in Hars Ticlarim, Dragon magic has used slaves as a combustible material to keep the mansions in the skies and seas functional while looking aesthetically beautiful. The Inquestors secretly run everything keeping the elite happy with their starry homes while drugging the masses known as Warreners before incinerating them as the fuel source of choice.

    Now after three thousand years of unchallenged control, a Warrener lad Wraith resists the Dragon magic that keeps his people docile. Wraith escapes and meets Solander, son of a Dragon magic practitioner. They form a friendship and soon ally with the rebel leader VINCALIS THE AGITATOR in a quest to lead a rebellion to end the unnatural order dependent on genocide.

    VINCALIS THE AGITATOR is an enjoyable fantasy novel that never quite attains the heights of The Secret Texts Trilogy (same place a thousand years later). The story line is exciting as the forces of good challenge the forces of evil. Though intriguing, the technology employed by the key players hinders the magic they also use rather than enhancing it. Still the adventures of the heroes are fun to watch as Holly Lisle entertains her audience with an action packed tale that never slows down until the reader finishes the story.
