Publisher's Summary

Aaron Envelar thought a sellsword's life was as dangerous as any life could be.

He was wrong.

Trapped in a conquered city with a reward on their heads, Aaron and his companions must find a way to elude the soldiers pursuing them while he struggles to understand his bond with Co, a magical creature of myth and the Virtue of Compassion. There is power within the bond, power that could help him protect his friends, if he's lucky enough to master it before the darkness within the bond consumes him.

But luck, Aaron knows, is a blade reached for in the dark, the man who grasps it as likely to bleed for his trouble as find the handle.

Stalked by Belgarin's soldiers, Aaron and his companions struggle to find allies before it's too late. But Belgarin's army is not the only danger they face, and even should they escape, even should Aaron master his bond with a legendary creature of magic, they may still fail. They may still die.

For there are other legends in the world, other magic. And not all legends are good ones. Not all magic is benign.

Great story but contradicting about Skills

So I like the story and characters for the most part, but Aaron keeps being described as this excellent sell sword, but rarely escapes a fight without coming close to death. A few I can understand, but what sell sword goes after the younger scout before the more experienced one?!? Sometimes it’s really difficult to continue through the book with stupid actions of a supposed excellent sell sword. I understand the issue with a sell sword suddenly having to deal with compassion, but how many times does his virtue have to be right before he listens to her. I’m heavily weighing my decision to continue this series.

Finally! Something new for the genre!

Sword and sorcercy has been lacking a new angle for years without getting wierd/ "unrealistic"/ to complicated, this series is a breath of fresh air and more! bought all three after only a few chapters of the first book and never regreted it

Liking where this is going.

This one was a little hard to get into, but once there, I was all in. Action, character - it's all there. Our heroes are fighting an uphill battle, but by the end of this one, at least there's a glimmer of hope. The series is the Seven Virtues, so I assume I've got five more books to go. The impact the virtues have on those they inhabit is interesting - their presence aiding good or evil depending on the person they come into. Four of them have shown themselves in the story so far. Three to go.

****Spoiler*****
I expected Aaron to kill Carlisle and take the virtue of adaptability. I expected Aaron to be the single vessel that finds and contains all the virtues, becoming an unstoppable warrior for good. That isn't what's happening. Instead, the virtues are showing themselves as players in the battle of the kingdoms. Far more interesting story, IMO.

Couldn't Finish

The first book was tough but the ending convinced me to continue on to the second book. Sadly that was a major mistake. To many issues that continued on from the first and a few new things that just did not make any sense. I got about 1/4 the war through and just had to stop.

Death is Not the Story

I had hoped the Aaron Character would improve and act like the mercenary he was supposed to be, but there has been little improvement. Adina also seems to come across as arrogant, naive and quite an irritating character.
Leomin's ramblings seem to take up a lot of space and I am not sure whether they are a plus or negative. Also, I think the narration is a real let down, which, doesn’t help sell the book.
