Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

The fifth book in the million-copy bestselling Kingfountain series from Jeff Wheeler.

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.

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.

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.

Really dropping off

Overpowering superhuman bad guys overwhelming all but the love of a young gal? Really disappointed that this great series started so great and has lost so much. I’ve already bought the next. I will hope some level of non-comic-book fiction will renormalize this really great series. The performance remains flawless.

A Great Series that Keeps on Going

I highly recommend this series - I have enjoyed it throughout. Regardless of what I am going to say - I recommend. With this trilogy there began the use of magic words that instantly change things versus the Fountain guiding out characters. I am not a big fan of magic words. I also miss characters like last to Ankarette and Atain who are not present or their equivalent. I miss the poisoners. Still, I highly recommend the series.

great story but left waiting for more

This is the first book of the series that left hanging threads between two books. its a great stiry - but a little disconcerting to be keft hanging in the story lines of a couple characters.

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.
