Publisher's Summary

The battle is won. But the war is just beginning.

Belgarin’s forces have retreated, but in the city of Perennia there is no rejoicing. The air is filled with the mourning cries of survivors, and the wind that blows through the city carries the smell of freshly dug graves and death. 

As the city grieves, Aaron and his companions attempt to hold together an alliance that threatens to crumble around them. While the alliance’s leaders bicker and argue, Boyce Kevlane, an ancient wizard bent on revenge, has taken Belgarin’s place as king and uses his twisted powers to create an army out of nightmare. 

To stand a chance of keeping the coalition together, Aaron is forced to venture into Baresh, a city gripped by madness and terror, in search of proof of the coming danger. 

But evil is a thing of shadows and darkness, and it will not go easily into the light. 

To survive, Aaron will be forced to call on his friends and the growing power of his bond with a creature of myth. Yet even this may not be enough. For there are other powers in the world, darker ones, and there is no telling what secrets the shadows hold.

The series continues with excellent performances

Once again in my opinion the performance was excellent, and one of the most compelling parts of the audio book. This story developed more characters and villains, showing deeds that should yield a great story in the next novel. I would have liked a little more in the way of action and magic on the part of the virtues.

Can't believe the story is getting even better

I love the characters and the story is getting even better . Steve Brand's narration is great and he just brings the story to life in such delightful way. I am a Jacob Peppers fan!!!! On to the next book in this series.

a little wordy and a bit too much angst.

the story is pretty good. But It suffers from the same thing a lot of the previous books do it's way too wordy way too much angst. scenes where the main character Kearns in a fight seeing his companions are about to be overwhelmed and goes on a 6-minute reflective internal Wine Fest. Before he turns to help his friends. the levels of descriptiveness about the same things over and over again makes the story really slow. If the author could just go from one thing to the next describing things in a reasonable amount of detail an emotional reflection. And move the story forward. sometimes I think he's writing for people with a 95 IQ. all that said it's still a reasonable story and I am going to listen to the next book.

Drags you right in to the middle!!!

I have read the books and am now listening to them as well. Great job with the story and this book is just pulling you further into what Aaron and the rest are doing to try and save the world! Steven Brand does a wonderful job of reading and performing the characters each in their own way. Keep them coming, I can't wait to listen to the next book!

Better

Belgarin and his forces have retreated from Perennia, only Belgarin is no longer Belgarin!

The alliance between all the factions is becoming flaky, which has caused Aaron and his friends to journey back to Baresh, a city filled with fear, and people who disappear in the night. If Aaron and his friends thought they were up against it in Perennia, then it is about to move to a whole new level.

This series has grown since In started and I am quite enjoying it, just not the narration.
