Publisher's Summary

Dragons have returned after a thousand years, but greater dangers lurk in the shadows....

As the lines between enemy and ally blur, Guillot dal Villerauvais is drawn farther into the life and service he had left far behind. Solène attempts to come to terms with the great magical talent she fears is as much a curse as a blessing, while the Prince Bishop’s quest for power twists and turns, and takes on a life of its own.

With dragons to slay, and an enemy whose grip on the kingdom grows ever tighter, Gill and his comrades must fight to remain true to themselves, while standing at the precipice of a kingdom in peril.

crap ass writing.

the first book was decent, bit crap in political "intrigue" good in fights. gil is a decent character. the rest are absolutely worthless. it drags like a dogs ass om the floor. the characters are repugnant, and it just sssuuuccckkks.

this is made worse as the story has potential, there could hqve been something good, but no. we ended up with poorly written and plotted trash. the main villian might as well be slinking around twirling his mustache, the "heroine" has all the personality of a bag of cement, and is just as much of a load. the plot is slow, plodding, and predictable despite how much it tries to throw curves.

i wish audible had a "dont show me the crap this guy writes" so the author can be added to that list for me. his other book in this setting sucked wet taint as well.

Well paced, exciting story

Great continuing story with a superb performance by Simon Vance. Interesting twists and satisfying end setting up for the conclusion. Only complaint is that the books are a bit on the short side. Most highly recommended.

I absolutely loved Every Minute

This book was such an adventure from beginning to end. I found myself longing for moments to return back to listen to this epic tale. Filled with magic, dragons and engaging characters — you will not be disappointed. It made me feel like a child brought back to a world of magic and wonder!

A Tale of Redemption

This series has been a delightful and exciting departure from the myriad “coming of age” stories in the world of epic fantasy. Rather, our primary protagonist is a redemption-seeker. In this second installment, Gil (spelling?) continues on his rocky journey back to chivalry. I am genuinely sad this book is over. And I cannot wait for the third installment.

The story is fun - not overly complex or caught up in itself. There are few characters to care about, but their depth is sufficient that you really do care. And the dragon perspective continues to be fascinating and a clever twist. I enjoyed Duncan Hamilton’s previous books, but this series is his best by far.

Hamilton does it again.

this is an amazing story. I love that it is set in the same world as his other books. He even references one of them. the characters are well created and the performance is naturally amazing because it is performed by Simon Vance. I cannot wait to see what the next book in the series has in store. I think Hamilton is the best fantasy writer in the business right now. What I appreciate the most is that his stories are exciting but they are clean. I feel comfortable listening to them with my children around. Most fiction I cannot do that. Thank you Hamilton for being such an amazing writer and writing a good story that does not rely on unnecessary adult rated content. Your stories are so good, I do not want them to end and I listen to them over and over and over.

Perfect 2nd book

Duncan M. Hamilton is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors and I will definitely be listening to more of his books. This 2nd book is excellent and sets it up nicely for the final book.
