"Circling Birds of Prey" brings together some of the characters who parted company in the "Children of Ambros". The southern forces of evil march steadily north bent on destroying the children and their gathering allies. The "gifted" ones among the northerners begin to show signs of their evolving mental abilities. Is this magic? No. Although Katy Winter has characters known as mages they are not workers of magic ; rather they are beings who have evolved mental abilities and powers beyond those of normal mankind. They are not supermen (or women), but personages who choose to aid those who do not have the same gifts; and as is often the case, who are regarded with suspicion and fear by the non-gifted. Can the children overcome those fears, or will they be absorbed into and become part of the evil that threatens Ambros? Katy Winter will no doubt tell us as the drama plays out. Book 3 of the "Chronicles" maintains the pace of the first two books, but also shows flashes of deeper thought, especially in the areas of morality and ethics.
