Whitbourn isn't clear on whether this is a consequence of Tobias's choices, of learning magic from elves, or of learning magic, full stop.

A morality tale, well told in this genre, of great energy fueling a great endeavor that is misguided. A favorite.

This odd book describes the rise (or fall, depending on one's point of view) of an evil sorcerer of a kind who would be a villain in most fantasy books. The book describes his moral decay in a way that seems plausible and realistic. The book ultimately has a fundamentalist Christian message. The "hero" is a strong negative example that is meant to show the emptyness of a materialist existence and the quest for power. I was fairly far into the book before I realized that magic was an irrelevent sideshow, unimportant to the plot. The book is very effective as a rhetorical tool, and as an argument for conventional religion. The book also contains some strong anti-Catholic messages, and the old notion that the world would still be in the Middle Ages without the Protestand Reformation (a notion I find silly).
