Product Description

Something is sucking the life out of Tabitha's song. Someone has stolen the Kingsrim. And the dire prophecy of Wry Tad Zastor is coming true.

The dreaded mark of three is upon this time: the mark of Chaos. Tabitha must face the Sorcerer beyond Eyri, but he was born with hatred for magic and for those who use it. He prepares to end all things in his apocalypse.

But how do you convince a man of the value of life when his has none?

"What brings about the end of life: ultimate order, or ultimate chaos?"

More About the Author

Greg Hamerton is a high fantasy writer: most of his stories come to him whilst flying over mountains in a T-shirt. It's hard to balance a manuscript and steer a paraglider at the same time, but he keeps trying to share his stories, because levitation is close to magic, and magic can be shared when you know how to spell.

His writing tends to include danger, epic journeys and sorcery.

He enjoys a range of fantasy authors from classic world-building masters like Tolkien and Jordan to the magical realism of Charles de Lint and Richard Bach. He has also been influenced by the character driven fantasies of Robin Hobb, the wry modern fantasy of Joe Abercrombie and the sharp wit of Terry Pratchett.

He lives in the south of England, where he spends his weekends looking for the Lost Mountains, or the Prodigal Sun. The Riddler's Gift is the first novel in the Tale of the Lifesong fantasy series, followed by Second Sight. A prequel is currently in development.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifesong Series Explodes Into Life 17 Aug 2010
The second novel of the Lifesong series and oh my god it was awesome, far exceeding the first in almost every aspect. This time the story begins in Eyri, following the epic battle that was the climax to Riddler's Gift, with Tabitha using her powers to heal those who have been injured and in doing so the people of Eyri have elevated her to a god-like stature, practically worshipping the ground she walks on and piling more and more pressure on her to heal and save everyone. In comparison to this Glavenor is no longer the man and soldier he once was and he now spends his time hiding as one of Tabitha's assistants.

While life in Eryi tries to rebuild itself, the Chaos that rules Oldenworld grows and spreads and the power of He Who Shall Not Be Named continues to grow while the Gyre try and recover themselves from their earlier battle. However there is a traitor in their midst's who convinces the young (and very naïve and arrogant) Prince Bevn to steal his father's crown, leave Eryi and make an alliance with the Sorcerer. In doing so he condemns his father to madness and pulls Tabitha into Oldenworld on the hunt for the Kingsrim. And so begins the epic adventure that takes Tabitha into the midst of Chaos where she has to save not only herself, her friends, Eyri and Oldenworld but also Ethea, the Goddess of Life and of the Lifesong, the source of Tabitha's power.

This book continues the promise of the epic fantasy laid down by Riddler's Gift and follows the story with all the dry wit, humour, tenderness, magic, mystery and mayhem (actually there's a hell of a lot more mayhem in this one, unsurprisingly considering where they're travelling through) found in the first tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel - hope there is more to come! 26 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this book just as much as the first in the series, and it was great to see the characters develop and their further adventures. I bought this book immediately after finishing the first book. I found myself reading too quickly because I was so engrossed in what was happening, and having to go back and re-read - it was so gripping. I did not want the book to end and am really hoping we are going to be able to look forward to more in this series. Thank you to Greg Hamerton for this wonderful series - more please!
