This second volume finds Royce and Hadrian on a quest to enlist the southern Nationalists to aid the ever-weakening kingdom of Melengar. Royce suspects an ancient wizard is manipulating them all, but to find the truth he’ll have to decipher Hadrian’s past—a past Hadrian wants to keep secret.

    "Slower strory line"

    Though being slower, this was still a great story. The ideas werent as fresh and new as the first book were. That being said it was still hard to put down. Now I will start book three. :)

    "Love this series!"

    This book was amazing. I also love the narrator. I would listen to this whenever I drove and would be upset when I reached my destination.

    "Great plot, superb narration!"

    It is wonderful when book 2 of a series maintains as high a level of integrity as does the first novel. Very entertaining and imaginative!
