Publisher's Summary

At long last, the reason for the blessed Adept race's decline has been discovered: powerful beings known as Malorin'athgul are disrupting the Balance and preventing Alorin's Adepts from awakening to their gifts. Who are they? Where are they? And how can they be stopped when they wield a power meant to unmake the universe itself?

In T'khendar, Prince Ean val Lorian has forsaken his companions in blood and battle to join the traitorous Fifth Vestal in T'khendar in the hopes of gaining some insight into the tragedies that plagued his return. Now, he must confront the man he's long thought of as his enemy and discover the role he is meant to play in the First Lord's darkly magnificent game.

The Vestal Raine D'Lacourte has followed his traitorous oath-brother, Björn, through six kingdoms and into the distant realm of T'khendar seeking explanation and atonement. But the condemned realm harbors shocking secrets, and Raine soon realizes he's facing his greatest enemy yet - not in Björn, but in the truth.

Elsewhere in Alorin, the young truthreader, Tanis, faces a new villain in the fiery-eyed man he followed from the café in Rethynnea; the soldier Trell struggles to reconcile his growing feelings for the girl he rescued from the river against the guilt of his unknown past; and in Tambarré, another truthreader named Kjieran van Stone treads the incense-filled hallways of the Prophet Bethamin's temple, hoping to uncover a plot of treachery and betrayal before the Prophet demands his soul.

The time has come for each player to claim his role in the First Lord's masterful game. All will be tested, but only time will tell how many can survive the dagger of Adendigaeth.

    "OK but not Good"

    Drawn out.. Some points could have been expressed easier and in less time. It is brutal from ch.1-25. and multiple chapters from there on.

    "one of my top 5 series, right up there with Jordan"

    Definitely one of my favorite series. and Nick Podehl is the icing on the cake. seems like whatever he does is a really great story plus with his storytelling skills I have neelver been letdown. but this one is one of my top 5 series. great magic system, this book actually breaks it down and explains how it works

    "Get this series! You will be glad you did!"

    Add this author to your list of must reads! Highly developed world and characters and a intriguing storyline to keep you listening, Nick Podehl is is usual superb self, narrating with such genius that it is hard to listen to anyone else! (Except Tim Gerard Reynolds...These two are the best of the best at narration!)

    "Fantastic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Dagger of Adendigaeth to be better than the print version?

    Yes, by far. Loved it and wish the third book was out.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot and the amount of attention each character has.


    What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Author is fantastic. Not sure why people don't like him.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No but yes. Good book!

    "Great Book!"

    The story is epic with every element needed to build a vast world, a universe of magic, plots, with realms and focusing on depth in many characters. The narrator is so good that it's easy to forget it's one person telling the story- voices of the young and old, male and female - I can't wait for the next one.

    "great narration horrible story"

    There was too much cheesy romance and sexuality. McPhail got so distracted trying to make people sexy that she forgot to give the book a plot. What plot the story does have is scattered and torn. Again McPhail used phrases repeatedly when they are not necessary and they get overused. The magic is awesome and the story could be great but it isn't. It also felt like McPhail was trying to be Ayn Rand and she definitely is not. As always Podehl did an amazing job narrating. He is phenomenal and the only reason I was able to get through this book.

    "If you loved the last book you will love this nect"
    Any additional comments?

    A lot of build up towards the next book so less action but still a good amount. Interesting twists and turns with more work on revealing the nature of the world system which i find very well thought out.
