For those of you familiar with the dark fantasy of the Ravenloft series you will find a kindred spirit. I have read other Dalglish novels. Wrote and t..Show More »his one doesn't disappoint. Two half orc brothers on their own. A dark master for one and elf lover for the other. A love for each other that allows one to turn his back on any other connection to save his brother. What does the dark master want? Who does he work for? Why is he so free with his gifts? Is redemption possible for two so steeped in darkness? Great battle scenes, character development at its darkest. Enjoy! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
I first fell in love with David Dalglish's novels when I stumbled upon a Trilogy offered on Kindle. The set was the first three of the half-orc series..Show More », these novels here. I knew that the story was setting us up for something huge later on in the series and this was the breaking of the bonds section. This was the novel that would show where the characters would go from their humble beginnings. So that meant some heartbreak was in order. I'm trying not to give spoilers but I will say this novel broke my heart the first time reading it and it broke it again listening to it this time.
I will say that I prefer the narrator from David's shadowdance series. I grew to love the voice is he gave some of my favorite characters. now that some of them appear in this novel, their voices are different, and that was slightly disappointing. I grew used to the new narrator though.
I have yet to read any novel by David dalglish that disappointed me. I highly recommend any of his books, especially his shadow dance series.
