The third novel in the Ascendant Kingdoms saga - a tale of war, heroism and sorcery from one of the most popular fantasy writers of recent years
The lines are drawn. The war has begun.
Blaine "Mick" McFaden has scored a victory and restored the magic, but new threats rise from the wreckage of the kingdom of Donderath. While the magic remains brittle and undependable, warlords both mortal and undead vie for power, fighting for control of the ruined Continent.
McFadden and his unlikely band of convict heroes must choose their allies wisely as renegade talishte take long-awaited vengeance and powerful mages seek to control Donderath's next king. McFadden must protect those loyal to him against the coming storm, and find a way to bind magic to the will of mortals before it destroys him - because time is running out . . .
Those who enjoy the large-scale fantasy of George R. R. Martin and Robert Jordan should enjoy this
