The thrilling conclusion to the breathtaking saga of power, blood, birthright, and enchantment. The barbarian King Loethar may have gained his throne through brutality and bloodshed, but he has ruled Penraven with unexpected wisdom. Now his innumerable past sins threaten his reign as Valisars who escaped slaughter prepare to rise up. Loyalties shift and new alliances are formed as the truth of history begins to emerge. King-in-exile Leonel hungers for revenge against the man he considers the usurper of his throne. Yet Leo is unaware of another who wields the enchantment he covets the once-charming "halfwit" brother Piven, now a powerful youth whose exceptional cunning is matched only by his ruthless desire for the throne. But the efforts of all three to hold or gain control of Penraven may well be in vain, for the true inheritor of the Valisar Legacy is being called home . . . to claim her crown.

I'd probably put it at number two - close behind Theft of Swords books...
Kilt Farris... and Gavriel.
I laughed and cried. There were so many twists in this series - I would recommend you listen to all three books. Each one throws in shocking twists... laughter, tears... all things I love in a book series. You begin liking a character, and then they change on you - and you begin to hate them. My emotions went crazy in this series... which made it that much better in my opinion.
Fiona McIntosh is probably my favorite author because she's so consistent. Unfortunately this is the only series of hers that is in audio format. I'm hoping they add more of her books soon. Things happen in her books that will shock you, piss you off and then make you happy. Her endings always leave you ready to read something else of hers. Happy with the ending in this series. For those who haven't tried her work - I HIGHLY recommend you do so.
