Publisher's Summary

More than five centuries after Camelot, a new king heralded by prophecy has appeared. As one of the last sorceresses of a dying order sworn to protect the new ruler at all costs, Alwen must answer a summons she thought she might never receive. Bound by oath, Alwen returns to Fane Gramarye, the ancient bastion of magic standing against the rise of evil. For alongside the prophecy of the benevolent king, a darker foretelling envisions the land overrun by a demonic army and cast into ruin. Alwen has barely set foot in her homeland when she realizes traitors lurk within the Stewardry, threatening to destroy it. To thwart the corruption and preserve her order, Alwen must draw upon power she never knew she possessed and prepare to sacrifice everything she holds dear—even herself. If she fails, the prophecy of peace will be banished, and darkness will rule.

I love Simon Vance!!!

As always the performance by Mr Vance was amazing! I could listen to him all day and do!
The story however was just okay. A little simplistic. Nothing wraps up at the end of the book which irritates me even if the author is going to write a second book!

Interesting & well performed, but very slow

It's interesting to see a fantasy with older protagonists. (Too many girl or boy save-the-day stories lying around) The setting is also interesting.

Unfortunately, the author focused far too much on character's emotions that aren't necessary giving them more depth, or is crucial to the story line. Things move at quite an agonising pace. But looking forward to see the conclusion.

Vance's performance definitely helped a lot.
