Publisher's Summary

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jeff Wheeler continues the acclaimed Kingfountain Series with a vast expansion of this spellbinding world. Thrust into the heart of events threatening to rip her kingdom apart, young Trynne Kiskaddon will gain new powers and see old allies fall and new heroes rise as the battle for the kingdom and the lands beyond begins.

Courtly intrigue and rumors of invasion plunge Kingfountain into turmoil as the search for Trynne's father begins in earnest. But Trynne's quest to learn the truth of Owen's sinister disappearance is sidetracked when tragedy strikes her family once again. Suddenly, the future of the kingdom rests in her hands as she struggles to learn - and control - the power that can keep the threatening Deep Fathoms at bay.

When King Gahalatine unleashes his overwhelming forces against the realm, Trynne must draw on her political instincts, warrior training, and Fountain-blessed magic if she hopes to survive the chaos to come. But a final, epic confrontation will force Trynne into an unimaginable choice: save her kingdom and the lives of her people, or lose the one who means more to her than life itself.

Truly excellent next installment in the series

The story alone stands as a testament to Wheeler's talent, but the surprise is in the convergence of multiple story lines. If you haven't read Wheeler's other series yet, start now.

I've fallen completely for Trynne and Fallon, even though my heart is also breaking for all that they experience. Wheeler continues to blow me away with his ability to draw deep emotional reactions from readers, while also portraying his characters as smart, savvy, emotionally intelligent heroines and heroes.

I cannot WAIT to find out what happens in the final installment of the Kingfountain series.

I'll take Jeff Wheeler over George Martin anyday

Seriously. While I do think George Martin is a talented writer and world-builder, I think Wheeler writes his characters fantastically. They're realistic: they feel and fear and love and overcome obstacles. Better yet: there's no gratuitous sex and profanity so yay for that!

Trynne has become one of my favorite heroines of all time, and Kate Rudd voices her perfectly.

This is how you merge worlds!

Mr. Wheeler has made a beautiful setting and great set of stories merge together into a cohesive world. Of course, I started my reading with Muirwood and the Mirrowen series of books, and through Muirwood, I learned of Kingfountain. This is the book that brings all three worlds together! He still hasn’t fleshed out how all the worlds mesh in the absolute terms, but if you have jumped into the other worlds, you will see the connections clearly.

That is the most exciting part of this book to me. The story is great, as are the characters. If you’re this deep in, then you already know that I is awesome. However, as an aspiring author, it’s his melding of his 3 distinct worlds that has me enthralled.

On to book six.

Only 1 to go

This is probably the best series I have listened to in quite a while. A lot is coming up in the next book to tie up this series. Can’t wait.

Amazing

Such a good book. I started this series with a free copy through my Kindle Unlimited account. Audio was included so I thought I would listen while traveling. What a great series to stumble upon and the audio version has been exciting to listen to. I have definitely found a new author to add to my list of favorites.

Loving this series

I am spellbound by this series! The writing is amazing and the story is thrilling and heart-pounding! Full of intrigue in a land where duty rules the hearts of its’ inhabitants and friend and foe mingle in courts full of magic. This series has me sitting on the edge of my seat and my heart aches for the characters that I have fallen in love with... Wheeler seamlessly replaced the hero in this series and I rarely have enjoyed this tactic but Trynne has captured my heart just as her Father, Owen, did.

Enjoyably good book

I enjoyed this almost as much as all his other books, but it didn't have quiet the twist of emotions some of his other books have. The wretched remains to date one of my favorites for that very reason.
