Publisher's Summary

The legacy of Mari and Alain blazes ahead in this brand-new sequel to the hit Audible original series The Pillars of Reality.

The world of Dematr had been locked unchanging for centuries by the Great Guilds, most people living in a world of oil lamps, crossbows, and horse cavalry, the Mechanics reserving to themselves the technology for steam locomotives, rifles, and far-talkers while the Mages treated all others as if they were nothing - until Master Mechanic Mari, dragon slayer and pirate queen, and Master of Mages Alain raised the army of the new day to free their world.

Kira of Pacta Servanda, the daughter of the two greatest heroes of her world, was six years old the day she stood on a battlement in Dorcastle, staring up at a statue of her mother while surrounded by bodyguards who fenced Kira off from the nearby crowds. As the morning sun cast the shadow of Mari's statue over Kira, she realized that she would spend the rest of her life in that shade. Then the world of Dematr learned that a new kind of ship had left the far-distant world of Urth. The ship would take only 10 years to cover the immense distances between stars. Of all the colony worlds, the ship was coming to Dematr. But for what purpose? Kira was 16 when the ship from Urth arrived, and she discovered that her world still needed heroes.

    "Great Start to Sequel Series"

    Listening Speed 1.8x
    A sequel series done right, there is an emphasis on new characters and some references to old characters. This series sets up the plot for the interaction with Earth, and looking at why the Great Guilds formed in the first place. From a character point of view its about living under someones shadow and being constantly compared to someone. In the end this story is about making your own path. The book is self-contained there is no real cliff-hangers,

    MacLeod Andrews performance is excellent. Characters have distinctive voices (i.e differentiable), the pacing and speed of the story was well done. Production was excellent I did not notice any audio anomalies while listening.

    Overall Jack Campbell has done an excellent job of starting the sequel series to Pillars of Reality with a great balance between old and new characters. Characters felt realistic in the decisions they made (even if they might not be the best). It also gives an interesting perspective on a possible future society from Earth. The story has a lot of action including jumping off of trains, sailing the high seas, encounters in alleys, lots of running away. Also, there is an awesome underdog scene in which I pumped my fist in the air with some great justice.

    "Continuation of an Epic Story across generations!"

    Just as his previous books, Jack Campbell hooks you in immediately and makes you want more. Macleod Andrews performance is as exceptional as previous. when can i order the next one is my only regret of preordering and listening to in a day. :)

    "Another Jack Campbell hit"

    Great YA adventure with outstanding morales and exciting adventure. Will read this to my daughter once it's out in print but will pale in comparison to the masterful MacLeod Andrews.

    "great start to the new series"

    Jack Campbell has done a phenomenal job on the previous series in this first book is just as good. I've always enjoyed Jack Campbell books but this previous Series in the new book is some of the best Work he's done.

    "Lots of Fun!"

    Unique mix of Fantasy and Sci-Fi. While you can listen to this book without first listening to the previous Pillars of Reality series, I highly recommend you do so. Set 20 years after the last book of the Pillars Series but in some ways picks up where it left off. It's just a lot of fun!!

    "A great way to keep the story going."

    I've been burned by sequels to a book series before. This is most definitely not one of those times. It is difficult for some authors to introduce new protagonists, characters, and challenges to world's we grow to love, but Jack Campbell was able to pull it off here. I was hooked within the first few chapters and was badly wanting the next book by the end. I can't wait to hear more from the world of Demeter.

    "Amazed"

    I am so excited the story continues in this trilogy. I felt that the end of Pillars of Reality left some questions unanswered. I loved the follow up and new story line. I cannot wait for the next book. I will be pre-ordering it as soon as I see it.
