Publisher's Summary

All paths lead to war....

Marcus' hero days are behind him. He knows too well that even the smallest war still means somebody's death. When his men are impressed into a doomed army, staying out of a battle he wants no part of requires some unorthodox steps. 

Cithrin is an orphan, ward of a banking house. Her job is to smuggle a nation's wealth across a war zone, hiding the gold from both sides. She knows the secret life of commerce like a second language, but the strategies of trade will not defend her from swords. 

Geder, sole scion of a noble house, has more interest in philosophy than in swordplay. A poor excuse for a soldier, he is a pawn in these games. No one can predict what he will become. 

Falling pebbles can start a landslide. A spat between the Free Cities and the Severed Throne is spiraling out of control. A new player rises from the depths of history, fanning the flames that will sweep the entire region onto The Dragon's Path - the path to war.

Phenomenal Audiobook and Excellent Beginning!

I've loved this series in print and am now enjoying it again in audio form. Excellent narrator brings the phenomenal story to exhilarating life. I cannot recommend this enough. A fantasy masterpiece with some of the most delightful characters and most brilliantly crafted world building.

Really wanted to like it

I really wanted to like this book and I will continue listening to this series. I think there is something here but it was pretty boring. The narration was awesome. My only complaint about it is that some parts are really quiet and others are really loud. Listening to it with headphones hurt my ears.
