Darkness and destruction have come to the land... but for what ultimate purpose? It has been 10 years since Quentin helped the Dragon King battle the sorcerer Nimrood. Since that time, there has been peace in the land of Mensandor. Until now.
An urgent message summons Quentin to Castle Askelon. The dying king wishes to name the brave young man his successor. But first, he sends him on an unfathomable mission. Quentin and his friend Toli must confront Nin - a legendary warrior bent on total destruction - and deal with the appearance of the Wolf Star, an omen of impending evil. But how do they muster the faith and courage to prevail against a nightmarish prophecy that heralds the end of mankind?
The Warlords of Nin, the second book in Stephen R. Lawhead's epic Dragon King Trilogy, continues the mythical saga that began with In the Hall of the Dragon King.

NO. It had a pretty good story, but the author is obsessed with adding god to everything. He believes in god that is great. However, every other line is the god on high. Limit this to a couple of times a book and this book is 5 stars.
for mediocre cliches and not so subtle religious subjects. The plot is predictable and the characters are one dimensional and lack common sense in basic military strategy. Its no wonder they need a God to save them. Tim Gregory is a talented narrator and has a good vocal range and consistency for each character. His Ss are sharp sharpand raspy in ear buds.
There is nothing "wrong" with this book, it follows the prescribed formula to a Tee but it lacks the luster and polish that some of the other books in other series by Mr. Lawhead. I wish I could say outright what the problem is with this one was, whether it was the narration or the book itself but it just fails to grab you and hold on. I am sure I will finish the series and I pray I am not totally disappointed.
Ten years of peace in Mensandor comes to an end, when the world is attacked by the Warlords of Nin. Quentin is named heir and successor to the throne by Eskavar, but first he is sent on a quest. Along the way he fulfills a prophecy. A brilliant sequel to In the Hall of the Dragon King. Stephen Lawhead is a master of his art. Tim Gregory delivers a great performance.
