A virulent disease sweeps through the Sawblen Province. The source is unknown. As hundreds fall victim, the healers race to contain it and find a cure before it engulfs the realm, but a would-be healer complicates the situation by concocting dangerous drugs.

While the officials are distracted, a counterfeiter takes advantage of the events. Credentials and money are faked, putting several lives in peril and resulting in deaths. The Great One's council and sage population hurry to track down the sources of the trouble and right the multiple crises before anyone else falls prey to the events. Rare natives of the planet have important information to impart - if the sages can decipher their cryptic message.

Giant leap forward

If you could sum up Divergent Paths in three words, what would they be?

Interesting. Thought provoking.

Which character – as performed by Maxine Lennon – was your favorite?


Any additional comments?

I was not aware that the story leaped forward by centuries. I was a little lost for a while until I figured that out. Overall I enjoyed the progression of the series. It is very different from the books that I normally read. Once I figured out the progression of the books I went to Holly's website to read about her series and that gave me some insight as to how her series will proceed. Now moving forward it will benefit me in reading the rest of the series. I look forward to the last three books.
