Book Description

25 April 2012
Disgraced scholar Dennon Lark only wants to be left alone in his self-imposed exile—an exile that ends when a rebel army wielding impossible powers launches a series of brutal attacks on villages across the Kingsland. Forced from his home, Dennon is drawn back into a world he wants nothing to do with. His research into the kingdom's lost past—the very research that sent him into hiding—may hold the answers to a great many questions about the rebels. Questions about their shadowy motives; about their mysterious abilities; and about their ever-increasing numbers, constantly bolstered by those thought killed in their attacks. And only the King's infamous warrior niece Bryndine Errynson and her company of female soldiers trust him enough to help him find the truth before the rebels burn the Kingsland to the ground. Following a trail of historical clues across the kingdom and pursued by forces they don't fully understand, Dennon and Bryndine may be the realm's only hope. But in order to preserve the Kingsland's future, they must first uncover its past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 13 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. The characters came alive for me and I found it one of those unusual books where I actually missed them when I finished.

I was hooked from start to finish. A very well written story which was well paced throughout.

I'm another one who's going to keep an eye open for more books from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me hooked. Loved this. 4 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What a fantastic find!

I have really enjoyed reading this, and I have found myself picking it up whenever I had a moment to spare this week. It's a very satisfying read. The characters are well drawn and the storyline is well rounded. Also, the author makes a good decision in letting his characters move great distances without us having to watch every journey. It means the story is fast paced and never tedious. I look forward to there being a sequel set in the same world.

For some reason i just could't get into this book to begin with, the counter on my kindle was only creeping up very slowly. I mean, who really wants to read a story where the lead character is the person who writes about things rather than running around hitting people?
Then at about 8% in it suddenly started flying up and in the end i didnt want it to finish. I really did grow attached to the man who hides under tables when everyone else is fighting. It did turn out to be a good book and well worth the 4 to 5 stars it keeps getting, well worth a read for anyone yet to spend the 2 on it. I for one will be looking for the authors next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A completely absorbing story 22 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has a number of things that I wish to see when I read a fantasy book. Firstly the world is properly realised, secondly, the main character is an individual with whom it is easy to relate and thirdly the plot all hangs together. There are mysteries to be solved and this was all done smoothly. There wasn't the feeling that things happened just to fit in with the plot (with one exception in the mountains). The proof reading had been done properly and most of the characterisation is good. Personally I would have liked to know more about the Captain and her thoughts but that is often a problem with commanding figures in fiction. Overall this book is well worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad read 22 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a bad fantasy read. Plot was different enough to be engaging, and the characters were ok. It rambled on a little in places, but if you are into fantasy reads, then you should enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars Different and well written. 17 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book among many other free ones. Before l read it, l read another, which had a good idea but was very badly written. Even before l was fully into this book, the quality of the writing impressed me. A surprise in its difference and well developed ideas. I will look for more from this author.
