Publisher's Summary

Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus' vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus's grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

But those gifted with the blood-song are never destined to live a quiet life. Many died in King Janus' wars, but many survived, and Vaelin is a target, not just for those seeking revenge but for those who know what he can do. The Faith has been sundered, and many have no doubt who their leader should be. The new King is weak, but his sister is strong. The blood-song is powerful, rich in warning and guidance in times of trouble, but is only a fraction of the power available to others who understand more of its mysteries. Something moves against the Realm, something that commands mighty forces, and Vaelin will find to his great regret that when faced with annihilation, even the most reluctant hand must eventually draw a sword.

    "Narrator horrid. Listening hard."

    I wanted to like this - but I can't. I am an frequent audio book user and normally go thru a book in a couple days. I've been trying to get thru this for a week. The narrator is horrible. Every character voice is the same so conversations run together. He doesn't pause at all between character dialog so you end up trying to figure out who said what. I'm sure it's a good story but I can't get the story because the narrator is so dead and jumbled in the reading.

    "Great book !"

    This was well worth the money for a continuing saga. I look forward to the next book in the series.

    "A good continuation for a great book"

    Although it's not as good as the previous book in the series, it's certainly enjoyable. The only bad sides are that the story always changes when it would become interesting, and the end that screams for the next book.
    The first had a clear ending and an opportunity for continuation.

    "Magnificent"

    Best medieval series ever written. Every bit as good or better than game of thrones. One of the few I read over and over when I can't find something else good to read. And there is no better narrator than Stephen Brand.

    "Another killer book by Anthony Ryan"

    Anthony Ryan does it again, in a book which kept me "turning" the pages. A thrilling ride that won't disappoint fans of the series, and this book explores our favorite characters from their points of view while meeting new friends and a couple old ones along the way.

    "Good Sequel"

    After having gone through the first one, I really looked forward to this installment. The difference with the "Point of View" story telling was a lovely twist.
    I can't wait to listen to the next installment.

    "Great 2nd installment"

    Great world building continued. I feared the story might not hold as interesting as the first book, but it delivered in it's own right.

    "As good as the first book"

    Hard to figure where those negative reviews are coming from, I really enjoyed the second book. After building the characters in the first book we now get to enjoy that work and see those characters going forward. There is more action, more world building and most importantly more POVs which all tell an interesting story.

    "Entertaining"

    It seams like it takes a while to get started and it's not like the other book. I am looking forward to the last book :)

    "Second as good as the first."
    Would you listen to Tower Lord again? Why?

    Like a great movie this has been added to my permanent library. Will listen again in days to come. Cant wait for number three.


    What about Steven Brand’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Brands narration is excellent. Very easy to listen to and adds to the story rather being a distraction.
