Cephrael's Hand by Melissa McPhail
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I first started reading this, I was reminded strongly of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, minus the annoying women and plus faster pacing overall, which was a win for me.
Trell of the Tides embarks on a journey to discover his heritage.
Prince Ean val Lorian is being hunted by persons unknown.
The Adept race is dying, and Cephrael's Hand, an unlucky configuration of stars, hangs in the sky for all to see.
McPhail weaves these stories through the tome leaving you wondering: Who is good? Who is evil? Is Bjorn really the traitor he has been branded or is he working to the same purposes as the other Vestals - to protect the realm of Alorin?
I enjoyed Cephrael's Hand and am looking forward to picking up the sequel, The Dagger of Adendigaeth.

PP/S I may have posted this review before. I think. But I couldn't find it via my tags. So maybe I didn't. I can't remember.
