Book Description

Summoner-King Tris Drayke takes what remains of the Margolan army north to fight a war Margolan is ill-prepared to fight, as reports from spies confirm Tris' worst fear. A new threat rises across the sea: a dark summoner who intends to make the most of the Winter Kingdoms' weakness.

And in Isencroft, King Donelan is assassinated and Tris's wife, Kiara, will now have no choice except to return and claim the crown. But the rogue mage's agents will go to any length to prevent her from reaching her goal.

Kiara and Tris must discover the truth behind the dark summoner, the mysterious power surrounding their infant son, and face the awesome power of the Dread as they rise from their barrows for the first time in over a millennium.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly written 22 Feb. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Read this in several days, only stopping for work and sleep. The flow of it from the other books is spot on, the characters are vivid and make you want to keep reading because you are constantly engaged from start to finish.
Gail Z Martin is one of a kind in the fantasy genre, her's are the only books i have wanted to keep reading constantly even though there may be other authors and books that i like, these are by far the best in my opinion.
I feel to get a good sense of the characters and over all story you need to start from the summoner as this creates the love of the characters and takes you into their world.
I hope that there is another one, so far i have never been disapointed whilst waiting for the next one as she constantly delivers brilliant books.

4.0 out of 5 stars leaves you wanting more 4 Feb. 2012
an excellent read, this lady's penmanship has impressed me of late and I read A LOT!

only one slight criticism, seemed to race to the conclusion towards the end of the book which could have easily been stretched to a 3rd book in a trilogy (or is that just me simply wanting more???)

more please Gail!

It's been a while since I've enjoyed a book this much. The characters are likeable, the story interesting and the writing is great. Ok, you can sort of guess what will happen. I mean, it's a traditional good vs. evil plot. Throw in a bit of romance between clashing characters. But it's wellwritten and funny and eve though you already know what will be, you just cannot put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars a real move forward 16 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i was looking for something to fill the the time and ahving read the original series i thought i'd give these a go. I was critical of the original series in that i thought the author had avoided risk by not bumping off any of the favourite characters even when you thought they couldn't possibly survive.

None of that here and i'm not spoiling anything but... it's a bit of a bloodbath and a much better read for it.

well done for taking the risk and looking forward to the next series
