Publisher's Summary

The next book in the Masters & Mages series that started with Cold Iron, from the master of fantasy Miles Cameron.

Only fools think war is simple or glorious.

On the magic-drenched battlefield, information is the lifeblood of victory, and Aranthur is about to discover that carrying messages, scouting the enemy, keeping his nerve, and passing on orders is more dangerous, and more essential, then an inexperienced soldier could imagine...especially when everything starts to go wrong.

Masters & Mages:

  1. Cold Iron
  2. Dark Forge
  3. Bright Steel

Another exciting chapter in an epic fantasy!

Miles/Christian Cameron is one of my favorite authors and this book just reinforces that. I loved this book from start to finish. Great performance by the narrator also. Cameron does two things better than anyone else; write great combat scenes that are believable and based on history and experience and discuss the ethics of violence and nonviolence in real ways while keeping the story moving. do yourself a favor make this your next listen!

Interesting story that moves at the right pace.

The story line changes and grows in Dept at a pace which feels right and the characters grow and develop naturally. I feel like I know the characters and I find I am concerned about the future they face.

Great continuation of series

Been waiting sometime for this book to be published in Canada. The wait was worth it.

The rare sequel that surpasses the original

A problem i have with a lot of series is that it's so hard to top a coming of age origin story. The sequels can seem sluggish and anticlimactic in comparison. Cameron not only manages to keep a strong (and relentless!) feeling of progress, but also keeps consistent pacing that gives you the occasional breather. As always, incredible action sequences that make you feel like you're the one swinging the sword. And another top-tier performance from Mark Meadows!

Couldn't lose myself in the story

Not a bad story just wasn't .... I feel like one the problems with young adult story is they combine too much emotions with adult situations. Everything is just felt so deeply. The first story didn't have this issue. Feels like all his inner dialogue is about how sorry he feels. It's almost like he didn't grow from these experiences.
