Publisher's Summary

Chloe's quest to escape the Oracle's prophecy leads her to a magus with a secret: the eldren are not the only race to use magic in warfare. An ancient power is rediscovered, and a forgotten people will return.

Meanwhile, cursed by his birth, Dion tries to forge a new life at sea, away from both the eldren and his former life in Xanthos, but the one thing he can't leave behind is his heritage.

Two kings on opposite sides of the ocean prepare for war.

The clash of civilizations has only just begun....

A great adventure.

I'm glad I discovered these treasures from James Maxwell. His storytelling is fantastic, the narration is great. The story doesn't fall victim to the same old, same old. There are length of surprises and twists to keep one interested. I can't wait to start the final installment. So, of I go.

Amazing story

I enjoyed listening to this story and to hear of the brave daughters of the first counsel and sad to hear of his betrayal and death. The narrator was was so excited. Thank you for your hard 💜 Simon Vance.

Fantasy lover

Loved it ! I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. I especially enjoy Simon Vance as a narrator. His voice changes help form a mental vision of the characters yet aren't so dramatic as to leave nothing to the imagination.

Very good.

I wasn't disappointed. It's a definite 4.5 out of 5. I could see a Syfy 3 night movie series. It could happen.
