Product Description

Product Description

The world of Arkaria is a dangerous place, filled with dragons, titans, goblins and other dangers. Those who live in this world are faced with two choices: live an ordinary life, or become an adventurer and seek the extraordinary.

In the depths of the dark elven homeland of Saekaj Sovar, Terian Lepos returns home after a long estrangement from his family. Separated from his friends in Sanctuary, Terian must reconcile with his father in order to keep the family's honor from a threat brought forward by an old enemy. Faced with test after test that strains him to the breaking point, Terian must discover for himself that the line between loyalty and betrayal is thin indeed...and that sometimes, the sharpest knives are wielded by those you know best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read 9 July 2014

Another brilliant book in this Sanctuary Series. I did however keep hoping Cyrus would pop up into the story, maybe I'm a bit bias as he's my favourite. This book tells the story of Terian and is still a great read. I love all the Sanctuary books, keep them coming please.

Good book, I found the setting claustrophobic (well it is in a giant cave most of the time) .. but I guess in that respect the Author achieved laying out the environment. Nice side story with important tie in's (not posting spoilers). Looking forward to the next in the series roll on Autumn.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must read! 6 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The world created by Robert for the Santuary Series is one of vast, sweeping landscapes, magic, gods and battles. The characters’ stories are told against that background. I confess that, although I enjoy these stories immensely, sometimes, in the heat of a battle scene, I can get a tad confused about who is supposed to be doing what, and to (or with) whom. That is not a criticism of the author – that’s just me, trying to read too quickly.

This addition however, is more character focused, and for that reason, although I still made reasonably short work of it, I felt that I was more able to keep up with the action.

Thy Father’s Shadow deals with the engaging back story of Terian Lepos, the Dark Elf and his relationship with his father. With more treachery and politics than an episode of G.o.T., this is an essential addition to the main Sanctuary series. Terian’s necessary sacrifice to complete his training is exposed bit by bit, by way of flashbacks, a tool which can sometimes be annoying and distracting, but which here, complements the story beautifully.

The author skillfully describes the strained relationship between Terian and his father, and his profound sadness and pain simply seems to radiate from the page on occasion.

This is my favourite volume of the series so far. I’m not a big fan of Terian as a character, but I do now understand his motivation. An expertly written, and touching story of family, betrayal and revenge.
