A thousand years ago, the Eleven Domains were invaded and the original inhabitants were driven onto the road as Travelers, belonging nowhere, welcomed by no one.

Now the Domains are governed with an iron fist by the Warlords, but there are wilder elements in the landscape that cannot be controlled and that may prove the Warlords' undoing. Some are spirits of place - of water and air and fire and earth. Some are greater than these. And some are human.

Bramble: A village girl whom no one living can tame, forced to flee her home for a crime she did not commit.

Ash: A safeguarder's apprentice who must kill for an employer he cannot escape.

Saker: An enchanter who will not rest until the land is returned to his people.

As their three stories unfold, along with the stories of those whose lives they touch, it becomes clear that they are bound together in ways that not even a stonecaster could have foreseen - by their past, their future, and their blood.

This omnibus edition includes all three novels - Blood Ties, Deep Water, and Full Circle - together for the first time.

Although it dragged a but at times and I had a hard time reading the next chapter, The Castings Trilogy is a very well developed fantasy. Bramble provides a very different sort of protagonist and the books bildungsroman theme provides the perfect development of Bramble from a young girl who accidentally kills a warlords man to a brilliant, fiery woman who has lived, and loved, and lost, and sacrificed more than most. The unique insight into the lesser characters who we only briefly greet, adds a whole other layer of intensity to the climactic scene where we finally confront the sorcerer who has been raising the ghosts of the Travelers.
