Publisher's Summary

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He'd never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

My fav author + a new fav narrator = gold

Amy Harmon once again drew me in with beautiful, lyrical language and a captivating story that touched my soul and filled my well. I liked Kjell's story even more than the first book in the series, which I wasn't expecting. The narrator had perfect delivery and is someone I'll definitely be looking up to discover other books.

wow

I loved everything about this book and this series. I thought since this book focused on Kel instead of Lark that it would be a whole new story that wouldnt be as good as the first. Boy was I wrong. These characters have so many talents and so many layers. I cant believe so much story is written in such a small book. Blown away. Wish there was a 3rd audiobook.

Amy Harmon weaves stories like no others.

After taking in Book 1, I did not hesitate to choose Book 2. The author completely satisfies the desire for a grand story of heroes -- both the common and the royal -- and the vast range of experiences that birth their greatness. The characters are fantastical yet believable because of the strengths and weaknesses of their humanity. The Bird and Sword Chronicles are epic tales of adventures that intertwine battles, romance, friendship, life, death, loyalty. treachery and magic with a remarkable use of words that left me feeling like I'd heard the best song ever sung and the most fabulous symphony ever played. Of course, the narrator was an integral component to the success of the audio version.

Loving this series

I was doubtful about reading this series, but something pulled me to try the first book, and I feel in love. I love the story of the four who began the world, I live the gifts, I love the stories within this particular story, and most of all, I love the people in these stories perfectly not perfect. Fabulous narrator too!!
