Publisher's Summary

The Moontide has come and the Leviathan Bridge stands open: now thrones will shake and hearts will be torn apart in a world at war.

A scarlet tide of Rondian legions is flooding into the East, led by the Inquisition’s windships flying the Sacred Heart, the bright banner of the Church's darkest sons. They are slaughtering and pillaging their way across Antiopia in the name of Emperor Constant. But the emperor's greatest treasure, the Scytale of Corineus, has slipped through his fingers and his ruthless Inquisitors must scour two continents for the artefact, the source of all magical power.

Against them are the unlikeliest of heroes. Alaron, a failed mage, the gypsy, Cymbellea, and Ramita, once just a lowly market-girl, have pledged to end the cycle of war and restore peace to Urte. East and West have clashed before, but this time, as secret factions and cabals emerge from the shadows, the world is about to discover that love, loyalty and truth can be forged into weapons as strong as swords and magic.

    "Such a good time"

    I just followed the narrator after hearing "the kingkiller chronicles" but this story is not typical. The intrigue and the magical system were phenomenal but the depth of character psychological analysis was definitely unexpected but added a new dimension to this epic tale. I am a fan. I love the characters with flaws and all. You won't regret listening to this series

    I drive a 18 wheeler, audible is a great way for me to stay awake, but its got to be riveting, so a good author and narrator is key.

    "Loved it!!"

    I gave book one a alright rating, but now I see that 3/4 of it was back story with the last as primer. The second book was a page turner/hour listener, front to back! WOW, this next book has some big shoe's to fill.

    "A Perfect Sequel"

    Upon finishing the first book in this series, I was somewhat disappointed. However, I continued to think about the story and the world itself, then I gave this book a go.

    For any readers equally agitated by the end of the first book, I strongly encourage you to give the second a try. Aside from the performance being brilliant, the story develops nicely.

    The writing is also quite good and Hair pulls you into his world, even when you don't like what is happening to the characters. Well done, sir.

    "Hard names to follow"

    I like the story, but I had to reply parts several times because the names of places and people were hard for me to follow. The performance was really good...it is what saved it for me.

    "Better than Mages Blood"

    The author writing and story telling skills are much improved. Excellent story, especially with the mature POV of Elena Anborn and Giles Gurvan. Intricate plotting that is quite cohesive and stimulating. Only a a few elements that are somewhat jarring and smack I'd Deus Ex Machina- Mistly involving Ramita.

    The narration is superb, on par with Steven Pacey who narrates many of Joe Abercrombie's books.

    A good listen. I am looking forward to The next book, Unholy War.

    "Great narrator, good story, well written"

    Great narrator, good story, well written. If you're looking to get some mileage out of your credits in a solid fantasy series, this will work as long as you are okay with sexual content and adult language.

    "Giant improvement"

    After the first book, Mage's Blood, I had my doubts about the series. I decided to give it a shot though simply because I love Podehl's performances. This book actually feels rewarding as opposed to Mage's Blood's feeling of constant, overwhelming disappointment with the characters.

    "Good story but where the hell did all sex come from"

    I liked the characters and story after the first book but was more than a little surprised by how much of this book revolved around sex. I'm no prude but is a big shift.
