Separated and miserable, Thanquil Darkheart and Jezzet Vel'urn both have their reasons for wanting to leave the Dragon Empire. Jezzet flees from the wrathful fury of an empress scorned while accompanied by the ever insidious Drake Morrass, and Thanquil sets out to find and judge his one heretical loose end.
The Price of Faith concludes the acclaimed The Ties That Bind trilogy by Rob J. Hayes. Look for books 1 and 2, The Heresy Within and The Color of Vengeance, published by Ragnarok Publications.

The only complaint I have is that Thanquil's moral dilemma seems forced into the story rather clumsily. It was almost like the editor told the author "Everything looks great! We just want one tiny little change, so do this major thing but we need it tomorrow, we're sending it to the printer!"
I don't have an issue with there being a dilemma, nor with what it was or really how it ended. But seriously, the dilemma was initially proposed, resolved, and consequences finished in less time than it took to type up this review. There was not enough time to process what was happening before the story moved on.
I love Darkheart!
Good drama and heroes. Excellent story, and finally a feelgood grimdark fantasy, if there is such a thing. I am tired of partially despising the characters in some of the contemporary grimdark works out there. Rob Hayes gets it right in these books.
Darkheart is a character I will follow whenever Rob Hayes wishes cast him.
No. Who has the time? But I was often thinking about the the characters. There is still much backstory left untold.
Imagine a Jorg Ancrath with integrity and loyalties, and Bloody Nine with self control and some sense of honor -- you will find them in these books. Grimdark without the disappointments -- is it still grimdark?
