The best-selling, award-winning author of Stiger's Tigers delivers the action-packed next installment in the Tales of the Seventh series.

Senior Centurion Karus and the Ninth are transported to a strange place, far away from the Britannia they knew.

I love the book! A great story that you would expect from this author. The narration comes from a kindly gentleman it is like being told by a grandfather in church. The story and adventure keeps you riveted to your seat. The narrator even though a easy to listen to voice is not made for this type of book. You need a Steven Brand, Simon Vance, Michael Kramer, or Tim Gerard Reynolds. It would be like the cherry on top. It would make the book a 5 star rating.

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.

I really like the story. I really don't like the new narrator! I could go on forever as to why but he put me to sleep. I couldn't stay focused on the story because the narrator didn't keep my attention. I had to keep going back to pick up details. Stick with Steven Brand, he adds credibility to a good story.

Throughout the vast lands controlled by the Ironship Trading Syndicate, nothing is more prized than the blood of drakes. Harvested from captive or hunted Reds, Greens, Blues, and Blacks, it can be distilled into elixirs that bestow fearsome powers on the rare men and women known as the Blood-blessed. But not many know the truth: that the lines of drakes are weakening. If they fail, war with the neighboring Corvantine Empire will follow swiftly.

These books keep getting better. The characters work well together and when you think they can't get into any more trouble you would be wrong.
