Publisher's Summary

Ever since discovering that his mother is still alive, and being held captive by Lord Zelroth, Lusam has been tormented by terrifying nightmares. He soon finds that it's not only his nightmares which threaten to thwart his plans of a rescue, but also the King himself. New alliances are made and old ones are tested to their limits as Lusam's single-mindedness to rescue his mother causes him to take risks that he would never normally consider.

A recent discovery allows Lord Zelroth to set in motion a new plan, which, if successful, will once again tear open the Great Rift and release the hordes of Netherworld creatures into the world, as well as the imprisoned God, Aamon. The very survival of Afaraon, and, possibly, the entire world, may soon hinge on the decisions that Lusam makes.

    "Great Story in Dire Need of an Editor"

    I'm hooked on this story; it's really engrossing, but the prose has some serious flaws. I find myself wanting to shout at the author at least every five minutes. Terrible repetitive word and phrase choices collide with constant, superfluous, and redundant individual clarifications. The same 6 adjectives and descriptors used over and over. The same overused superlatives on every page.

    There's about 20 pages with of words that could just be cut without any need for replacement. Just unnecessary, additional words that would not be missed if they had just been deleted from the manuscript.

    Dean Cadman, I love this series and I will happily beta-read your work for free because you tell a really good tale. If you don't take me up on my offer, please find a good editor. I want to keep going with this series, but it's getting harder and harder to stay in the story.

    Story
    "Same old - same old"

    It frustrates me to experience Lusam making the same mistakes & not learning from them. Even if it has a deeper reason, I find myself having to keep myself from skipping ahead in the story because I want to avoid the long descriptions resulting from Lusam's inability to retain any knowledge of moral philosophy or his memories from each and every time he failed to do so.
    Then he messes up again. Berates himself as everyone around him pays the price and then does it again in the next book with no memory or reference to the last time it happened.
    It's like an old episode of Star Trek or a sit-com. Nobody seemingly learns or develops any actual core values.
    I otherwise love the books and find it well written, entertaining (outside of my grievance above), and well read aloud.

    "Damn you, Dean!"

    This book is freaking great! I'm just annoyed that I have to wait for Aemon knows how long before the next one is released. As always, the narration is perfect.

    Story
    "NOTHING HAPPENS"

    Don't understand why a writer would use 10 minutes explaining how Lusam made a boat out of a oven. Then another 10 minutes explaining how he made a bed in a ship. There's so much unneeded information in this book that has nothing to do with the plot. This story could of concluded in 2 or max 3 books but now there is 5th coming out.
