Publisher's Summary

The riveting tale begun in William Wilde and the Necrosed continues as William finds himself beset on all sides by cruel foes and even crueler friends.

Having survived the monster, Kohl Obsidian, Wiliam Wilde had hoped his life would settle down - that he'd finish his senior year of high school with no further adventures.

But life isn't so simple for a potential magus, especially one who's overcome as deadly an enemy as Kohl. Instead, William has unwittingly earned the raptor gaze of even greater foes. One is someone he thought he could implicitly trust while others are even more dangerous. And all are from the island of Sinskrill. They are mahavans, powerful magic users bent on humanity's enslavement. They seek to capture William and chain him to their needs, to bind him in perpetual servitude upon Sinskrill.

William finds himself caught among people for whom deceit and pain are simple coins to be traded, and his best hope to survive these new challenges might lie with someone he'd always thought to be his mortal enemy.

Davis Ashura is the new master of short fantasy

In the second book of the William Wilde Chronicles, William & Jake find themselves fighting for their lives after being betrayed and brought to the worst place on Earth: Sinskrill. Here the boys find out just how good they have had it up until now. Everyone lies for their own personal gain and relationships are not built on love but necessity. In the meantime, Jason and his Grandfather are busy planning the rescue of William and Jake. Many new and old characters (YOU KNOW WHO!) are introduced and as always, Nick Podehl is there to keep the imagination at peak performance. Plot lines were never incoherent or difficult to follow. I do believe a glossary will need to to be added to Mr. Ashura's website as spellings and definitions would be a massive help with book 2 going into book 3.
Mr. Ashura said he wrote this for his young teenage kids at the time so this series is Young Adult, but a good deal of the situations are as adult as they come. It was half the normal listening time I am used to for the genre, but I don't mean that in a bad way at all. A total run-time of 9 hours and 25 minutes is all this needed to be smart, creative and suspenseful right up until the last chapter. I expect character development and world building in the fantasy genre today to extend books in the genre into the 700+ pages realm but somehow Davis Asura delivers a perfectly executed mid series book at 356 pages... it really is remarkable. At this point, I have read everything he has published and it is a good indication that I will be reading whatever he creates for years to come.
Book 3 we are all in for a WILDE ride! (see what I did there) Lord **** cometh!
Keep up the great work Davis!
