My first introduction to Robert Stanek's amazing world was through The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches book 1. It was an excellent listen indeed. I decided to listen to this second one as it seemed a direct continuation of the story, and thankfully it is. In fact, this second book brings the story lines together, and you get a glimpse of where everything is going from here. The quality of the audio is superb. This book will not disappoint. Bravo, Robert!

After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

Over all, I give it a 5 of 5 because I had a great time listening, and this is one of the few purchases lately that I felt was worth it. Aside from a few slow parts, this is excellent, and it only gets better from here. The sequels are amazing, and bring closure to the story lines. I liked it so much I bought the printed books so I could mark my favorite sections. It's as good as fiction audio gets.
