Publisher's summary

An epic journey of deceit, betrayal, magic, and a treasonous love sets sail as Meath, a young apprentice to the formidable wizard, Ursa, escapes certain death while a freshly united kingdom is held captive by a false prince.

In hope of relaying the truth of the usurper, who now threatens the throne, Meath embarks on a dangerous journey with the true heiress, Nicolette, in an attempt to reach her uncle before they, too, are entangled in the lie that has wound itself deep into the lands.

Amidst the soldiers dispatched to return the princess and capture Meath and his friends, they must avoid the barbarian clans who have begun a savage war on the Kingdom of Draco, evading what seems like fate has become a perilous game they may not be able to win....

Old-school fantasy, immersive audiobook

Note: I received an audiobook version of the book from the author in exchange for an unbiased review. My thoughts on the audiobook narration are included at the bottom of this review. I have read the book in audio form only.

3.5 stars

This book will surely appeal to fans of old-school swords and sorcery. It has plenty of action, some of it gory, as well as some exciting magic, and not one but two castle sieges. Though it doesn’t break any new ground, it tells its story well, though I was a bit put off by the “To be continued” ending, which leaves the main climax unresolved.
The narrative is quite complex, following a large cast of characters, from heroes to villains to those in between. Fuller handles the plot complexities deftly, though the switches in POV within chapters are not to my taste. This is a writer who knows the story he
