Publisher's Summary

On the world Ranadon there is no night as both suns shine brightly. The intervention of Belagren, High Priestess of the Shadowdancers, and the sacrifice of a child of royal blood, has banished the Age of Shadows from the skies. Belagren's position is unquestioned...until circumstances begin to tip political rivalries into a deadlier game altogether.

A volcanic eruption rocks the seas separating the Kingdom of Dhevyn and the mainland Kingdom of Senet, and a mysterious sailor is shipwrecked on the island of Elcast. Badly wounded, his arrival stirs up old hatreds and unravels old secrets. His presence is enough to even bring Antonov, the powerful Lion of Senet, to the island and fear to the Keep of the Duke of Elcast.

A strong friendship develops between Dirk, second son of the Duke, and Kirshov Latanya, second son of the Lion of Senet. But will they, and their friendship, survive the chain of events set in motion by the ambitions of the ruthless High Priestess of the Shadowdancers and the domineering Lion of Senet?

This first book of the Second Sons Trilogy establishes Jennifer Fallon as one of the most unique voices in fantasy fiction, as she creates full characters, and takes intelligent plotting to a whole new level in order to establish unparalleled complexity and tension.

What the Critics Say

"A complex, epic adventure that leaves the reader entirely immersed in another world. There are many threads woven through the story, including a huge cast, but Fallon keeps them from tangling with deft plotting, strong world-building and stand-out lead characters." (Book Reviews)

    "So excited! One of my favorite fantasy writers"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lion of Senet to be better than the print version?

    Read the books and they were great and I am also loving listening!


    What did you like best about this story?

    This series is extremely intricate and the twists and turns all come together perfectly at the end.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Only stopped listening to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent writer, excellent story!

    Story
    "Too Many Plot Issues"

    Not really a "fantasy" novel - more like a historical, fictional tale set on a planet with 2 suns. Explanations are missing about the oddity of a place with 2 suns in which a spinning planet somehow has one or both suns in the sky 24/7.... until about 2 decades earlier when the greater sun disappears for around 15 years. Political and religious turmoil erupt and continue through to this 1st novel. I suppose I could overlook the flawed science behind the premise as the 1st half of the book is OK. The 2nd half loads nearly EVERY character with such dislikeable traits that you'll think everyone has a split personality. I'm about 30 minutes from the end as of this writing and have gotten to the point that I no longer care enough to have any interest in the rest of their series.

    Story
    "Perseverance required.."

    I originally bought this title because I really enjoy Joe Jameson's narration, however, I didn't immediately form a rapport with the characters and considered returning - I am pleased I persevered! By the end, my interest in the destiny of the main characters has been peaked sufficiently enough to ensure that I purchase the second before too long. Had I read the book, I might not have finished it but Joe Jameson's marvellous performance skills spurred me on and I found myself ever more drawn in as the story unfolded.
