Publisher's Summary

Power-hungry Kalare has rebelled against Alera's aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus. Ill-equipped to face this attack, Gaius must seek support - even from the combative High Lord of Aquitaine. Kalare has also seized valuable hostages that could mean the difference between victory and failure. And Amara, the First Lord's Cursor, has been tasked with their rescue. She has earned this trust but are her allies as worthy - or does the Lady Aquitaine see the time as ripe for betrayal?

Treachery is rife elsewhere, as young Tavi of Calderon will find. Posted away from the war, Tavi joins a legion anyway, under an assumed name. Then Kalare does the unthinkable - uniting with the brutish Canim.

When treason wipes out the army's command structure, Tavi finds himself leading an inexperienced legion against the might of the Canim horde - the very last resort of a war-torn realm.

    "Last minute ending. Stupid annoying horns!"

    Overall I did enjoy this installment of the Furies of Calderón series. Tavi's character became more developed, and it was fun to see more of Max (one of my favourite characters). The flashback sequences were well-crafted. I felt Amara became a much more agreeable character in this book.

    The reason it's not getting 5 stars is two fold. Firstly, I feel like it could have done with being shorter in some places and then longer at the end. The final battle felt a bit of an anticlimax. My second reason is those stupid bloody horns which keep sounding at random places throughout the book! I have no idea if they are meant to denote a pause in the book, or if someone is about to do something very heroic, but they are beyond irritating. I often listen to audiobooks to fall asleep, and the sudden jarring sound of a bizarre fanfare is distinctly unwelcome. Whoever had that idea needs a kick up the backside.

    "Great take on a classic plot"

    I've listened to a lot of fantasy books with a similar story arc but this one has captured me like very few others. The story and the performance both top notch. Next in series is already downloaded and ready to go

    "Great story, marred by odd sound effects"

    I loved this book, it's a particularly strong addition to this excellent series. I can't stand the seemingly random fanfares that have been added to the story however. They break up dialogue and moments of tension for too often and serve no purpose.

    "Brilliantly entertaining story"

    The only problem with this story is that it's only 6 books long. Shame it had to end.
