Publisher's Summary

Markal, an apprentice wizard, is thrust unexpectedly to the head of his order when his master is decapitated by a gray-skinned assassin. The order's walled gardens have the power to restore their dead master to life, but only if the apprentices can protect his body long enough for their sanctuary to work its magic.

When a barbarian warrior named Bronwyn invades the gardens wielding a soul-binding sword and accuses the order of harboring a powerful sorcerer, Markal thinks she is another assassin come to finish the job. But Bronwyn is a paladin, a holy warrior from across the mountains, and her presence is a harbinger of a greater threat than Markal had imagined, a necromancer with the power to command the dead.

Together, they must join forces before the necromancer destroys Markal's order and overruns Bronwyn's homeland.

    "Magic with a cost..."

    Too often, we see magic in books and the only cost is a bit of tiredness from the wielder. When a barbarian attacks the magic garden, we get to see the true cost of magic isn't always just being tired for a little bit. It can take a real blood toll on you.

    This book was fast paced and the narration was spot on for the book. I really want to listen to more in the trilogy. I loved the world created by Michael Wallace and hope to visit it again soon. Fantasy lovers should get a copy of this book!

    This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.
