Publisher's Summary

A spirited blacksmith's daughter accused of using the dark and terrifying sleth magic. The young man who hunts her. And the ferocious monster who wants only to be free.

Trapped in a web of lies and ancient secrets, of right becoming wrong, the three must struggle not only against each other but also against a being of irresistible power, a creature who is gathering her servants to usher in the impending human harvest. If the three succeed, they will save those they love the most. If they fail, the clans of the land fall with them.

Thus begins the towering fantasy series that introduces an elaborate new world, a multifaceted system of magic, and a cast of compelling characters and creatures. Listeners who love deep, rich worlds, strong characters, and perilous adventures will be delighted with the action, surprising turns, and discoveries.

    "Awesome narration!"

    The character weren't exceptionally dynamic, but the story was engaging enough. I listened to this on audible, and found that this is possibly the best narration I've heard yet!

    "Brilliant"

    Grew on me at a steady pace and left me with no choice but to start on the next book immediately. Great narration helped bring the characters to life in my mind.

    Story
    "Wonderfully outlined and executed fantasy"

    What starts out as abruptly fractured chapters soon becomes clear as a means to introduce the tale's disjoint characters along with their backstories early on. As the saga's name implies, this fantasy focuses on the dark arts, however, its usage is not only exercised by those with evil intent, although there is plenty of that. There are also those with this talent who have banded together to resist those people who are bent on limiting those who can practice this magic to a select powerful few. Additionally, there is an unknown dark presence, long ago forgotten, that has returned to reclaim its former control over all humankind.

    While there is a strong element of coming-of-ageism, that is only one aspect of the novel. There are substantial threads involving substantive familial relationships and, of course, the evilness that is ever-present.

    John D. Brown proves himself as an excellent writer who can weave a complex, and often poignant, tale. Alex Wyndham is very adept at voicing this novel's full breadth of characters from adult men/women and adolescents.

    I liked this first book so much that I didn't hesitate purchasing the next two novels even before finishing this one. So much so, that I fast-tracked the next novels ahead of others I've had in waiting.

    "New Favorite Epic Series!"

    Wow, what an incredible series! I would say that it easily compares to both "The Wheel of Time" and "The Stormlight Archive." If you liked either one of those you'll be right at home here. :D

    "A little depressing"

    The story was different, but it was depressing. Had you wondering where are the heroes, and when will they get a break!
