Lists with This Book. When a witch is born, a spell is cast to help her channel her magic, and to block that channel until she’s ready.
The characters themselves were a bit contradictory: On the one hand, this story is very much a traditional fantasy — witches and warriors, swords and sorcery — but on the other, Brennan has created a world doppleganger of her own design. It was a shock to me that Miryo was Circumstances of their unknown past, tradition, current events and a conspiracy throw the two of them into direct conflict Mirage is a strong woman, with a chip on her shoulder and something to prove.
This book was also published under the title Warrior. I love the premise for the story. I guess the fact that she never really questioned her up-bringing at all kind of bugged me. Lame name I brfnnan, but it’s a Hunter thing. Thanks for telling us about the problem. The side characters, meanwhile are all distinct mari bring their own flair and color to the story. The temptation to skim was impossible to pass up, and I gave in often.
Warrior (Doppelganger, #1) by Marie Brennan
Mirage and Miryo are an interesting balance of characteristics, with a lineage traced far back, although I’m probably most familiar with Captain Kirk’s infamous split into two beings, one positive and one negative. To control her powers and become a full witch, Miryo has only one choice: Each ray of magic,based on five elements, is led by a prime, with the Void Prime leading all the rays.

The mystery solving became my main interest after I realized that I didn’t love the characters, and the main plot was weak. Originally, I incautiously bought Doppelganger but not Warrior and Witch ; just before I finished Doppelganger, I had to make an emergency evening run to our local bookstore, which happily had Warrior and Witch on the shelf, so that I could gobble it up as soon I finished the first book.
The story gets stronger as it goes. The side effect is a doppelganger, who must be killed if the witch is to survive and come into her brenman.
Parts of the novel were good, while others seemed to really drag. Although I found this book easy to get through, I really wasn’t pulled in until the last forty pages, and felt that it could have been shorter.
Yes, we have swords and magic and horses and witchcraft. But her new mission will take her into the shadowy world of witches, where her strength may not be a match against powe Maris a witch is born, a doppelganger is created.
But what happens when the doppelganger survives?
I was also fascinated by the questions this story quietly raises about identity — and by establishing both characters and then bringing them together, Brennan lets us see the many ways in which they are alike, yet different, and how these distinct characters so perfectly compliment each other.
I first read this book when it was released under the title Doppelganger and I fell in love with the characters and the world. A medieval society that had elements of Western, Middle, and Eastern cultures. Not my favorites at all.
Eclipse is freakin awesome and clearly cares about Mirage! Mirage and Eclipse are still two of my favourite characters to read about. I will admit at some points there was a bit too much detail and I found myself skimming a bit.
