Publisher's Summary

Since the Age of Shadows ended, the people of Ranadon have lived under the merciless heat of two suns and the tyranny of Antonov, the Lion of Senet. Consumed by his lust for power and his unshakable belief in the capricious, almighty Goddess, Antonov’s rule is absolute. Only one man has the intelligence and will to break that hold...a man who could be King.

Suddenly widowed, Morna Provin, Duchess of Elcast, has lost her only protector. With her son banished for an unspeakable crime, she faces a horrifying fate at the hands of the Lion of Senet as retribution for her relationship with the heretic Johan Thorn. But it is only part of a cunning scheme to lure her son, Dirk Provin, back into the fold so Antonov can consolidate his power once and for all. With his mother’s life at stake, Dirk Provin must emerge from hiding in the Baenlands and return to Elcast—setting in motion a rebellion that will expose long-buried secrets and ignite festering hatreds.

For a ruler’s fears and a madman’s prophecy will start Dirk on a quest for truth that will spark a fierce battle between two very different men: One who believes only what his five senses tell him, the other obsessed by his faith in the divine. It is a clash that will bring to light a revelation that may shatter them all.

What a page turner

Honestly, I couldn't put it down. It picks up the story two years after the first book finishes, but in terms of pace and feelings -there's no interruption whatsoever. The intricate web of relationships that the author weaves in this part of the trilogy is sometimes heartbreaking and gut wrenching, but I mean that in the best of way. I was completely absorbed in the plot and the characters. I can't wait to start the next book. As for the narration - I really think Joe Jameson is one of (if not the) best narrators I've ever listened to. He acts so well and gives each word feeling and meaning and texture. He is really outstanding.

Well Worth It

The first book was quite deceiving in its lead in and I very nearly returned it. What a tragedy that would have been as it has turned out to be quite addictive. The storyline is told from various POVs, who are more developed in this second book. Well, landfall night has been and gone and Tia is still with us, regretfully. Her relentless criticism of Dirk has become so painful now, surely someone will shut her up soon. Then we have Marquel; who has become a most vicious, nasty sociopath. And then there is Dirk. What is it they say about the quiet ones? Finally, it is Misha who has all my sympathy. A truly gentle boy, used as a tool and born to suffer at the hands of true evil at its best. My one criticism (if you could call it that) is that the code of the last gate was quite easy to decipher.

I love Jen Fallon

Jen has always generated a very immersive plot line that goes perfect with audiobooks and in fact books where you want to get lost in twists and turns of very well detailed characters that you genuinely like or in the instance of Markel very much dislike as in this book she becomes even more power hungry. It's very easy to be led down whatever way this story takes you and it's hard to guess how it will end in lord of the shadows, will Dirk have any allies left in the end and will Neris finally tell us more of his maddened wisdom!
