Meliu survived the horrors at the Shrine of Burdenis, her scalp mangled by the Taken, but she braved her soul's eternity to rescue holy tomes. Escorted by Ivin Choerkin and the wardens, she found the legendary Codex of Sol, a book thought destroyed by the Clan Choerkin centuries ago. The Codex once brought holy war with its forbidden prophecies; its pages once again seem poised to change the destiny of a people.

Meliu brings a different view of the events in Eve of Snows. Mr. Rice stile of writing is extremely intriguing. Seeing the ending of EOS from another view point while continuing on with the stories/adventures has made me realize L. James Rice is far more talented than I expected. A friend and epic fantasy aficionado and dilettante said it best, "Why did LJR waste his time as a vintner? He should have been working on his novels instead of making wine!"

Five hundred years ago the world shattered, banishing the gods from the Sister Continents and stealing the memories of the mortal peoples in an event known as the Great Forgetting. In 17 days the stars will align, and a religious cabal will summon the gods back to the realms of men.In the northern tundra priests search the Steaming Lakes, a place tormented by the Wakened Dead. Deep in the mountains, demonic shadows assail priests at a holy shrine. In the south, the clans know something foul is afoot, and dispatch warriors to seek answers, but instead they find horrors.

Dark epic fantasy. One of my favorite novels. It's at the level of any of the Tolkien reads. It starts out with each chapter covering the various characters and groups that will all get intertwined later in the story. L. James Rice sets up a new land and era that is fascinating. I highly recommend this adventurous story because it was difficult to put down (or in the case of the audible version, to shut off the iPhone). The action starts and builds then explodes! The twists and turns. Outstanding novel. A must read.

Conservative talk radio's fastest-growing superstar is also a New York Times best-selling phenomenon: the author of the groundbreaking critique of the Supreme Court, Men in Black, and the deeply personal dog lover's memoir Rescuing Sprite, Mark R. Levin now delivers the book that characterizes both his devotion to his more than 5 million listeners and his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers.
