Publisher's Summary

Every player in Barliona has heard of the Gray Lands - the land of the dead. Few have managed to travel there and speak with the heroes and villains of old. And of this minuscule number, only one bard has managed to bring the souls of the dead back to the world of the living: the Bard of Shadow. Now, it is up to her to determine the future of her race. 

Shall the Biota race become full-fledged members of Barliona, or will they oppose all that lives?

Rocking in the USSR!!!

I’m truly enjoying the entire series of both Mahen and now Kira. This little cabbage patch rocker has been not only a delight to follow but has sparked the faded memories of songs that I had forgotten and had to get. Vasily created a wonderful world and story line that has blossomed a new series that I eagerly await for with the help of Eugenia.

Bards will always be booooorring

These books are a little slow and tedious. I love Vasily's other books. If it were not set in Barliona, leaving me interested in the tie into Mahan's story line, then I would not have continued this series.

What happened to the original author?

What a boring book. She is a vegetable, but that does not mean a thing. There is a huge bunch of people, with all kinds of names, that do... Something and they are gone. In the end she saves the day. Hooray.
