After a year of fighting across three different lands, Dante and Blays have finally brought Gladdic to justice - and in the process, they've unleashed a horror beyond all reckoning. The enemy is known as the White Lich. He is ancient. He is immensely powerful. And Gladdic believes he will soon enslave all of Tanar Atain. Their only chance to defeat him is to strike fast, before the lich has regained his power. But attacking him directly would be suicide.

Every series spends some time patching and setting up story lines. This one did the job. I think it could have been done in much less time; some parts dragged on so tediously they literally put me to sleep. But it created the ground for the next (last?) part of the cycle and of course I will buy it. In the meantime I'm left to marvel at how many words an author can burn in sections where nothing happens.

The gods have broken free after centuries of slavery, and the world holds its breath, fearing their vengeance. The saga of mortals and immortals continues in The Broken Kingdoms. In the city of Shadow, beneath the World Tree, alleyways shimmer with magic and godlings live hidden among mortalkind. Oree Shoth, a blind artist, takes in a homeless man who glows like a living sun to her strange sight. This act of kindness engulfs Oree in a nightmarish conspiracy.

I really have wanted to delve into the Amber books after beginning them years ago. But they are over before you know it or have a chance to relate to the characters. An omnibus offering would be welcome. But these are worth neither the price nor the credit. I keep buying them, wanting the rest of the story, and being frustrated at how little I got.
