Publisher's Summary

The Banished Lands are torn by war as the army of High King Nathair sweeps the realm, challenging all who oppose his holy crusade. Allied with the manipulative Queen Rhin of Cambren, there are few who can stand against him. But Rhin is playing her own games and has her eyes on a far greater prize....

Left for dead - her kin have fled, and her country is overrun with enemies - Cywen fights to survive. But any chance of escape is futile once Nathair and his disquieting advisor, Calidus, realize who she is. They have no intention of letting such a prize slip from their grasp. For she may be their one chance at killing the biggest threat to their power.

Meanwhile the young warrior Corban flees from his conquered homeland with his exiled companions, heading for the only place that may offer them sanctuary. But to get there they must travel through Cambren, avoiding warbands, giants, and the vicious wolven of the mountains. And all the while Corban struggles to become the man everyone believes him to be - the Bright Star and saviour of the Banished Lands.

Embroiled in struggles for power and survival, the mortal world is unaware of the greatest threat of all. In the Otherworld dark forces scheme to bring a host of the Fallen into the world of flesh to end the war with the Faithful once and for all.

    "Absolutely stunning!"

    I thought the first instalment was excellent - this surpassed it. Great narration, fabulous story and a wonderful development of the characters. I have book three downloaded and I can't wait to listen to it!

    "Great swords and sorcery tale"

    Very well performed, different accents help distinguish between the many different characters.
    The storyline is somewhat predictable as you'd expect in this kind of novel but the pace keeps it interesting.

    Story
    "Good story. Awful narrator."

    I read the first part of this trilogy in the form of a physical book and really enjoyed it, so I thought I would get on well with part two as an audio book.

    I only persevered because I really wanted to know what happened next.
    The actual story is excellent, but not for the squeamish as the is a lot of blood and gore. No problems with the actual book.

    The narrator is truly awful!! I very nearly gave in and got my credit back. Firstly, I found his attempt at drama by using clipped, staccato speech infuriating. The book is set in a pre industrial, feudal society. However, this narrator's accents do not 'fit' the characters at all. Most of the knights, Corban and his family sound like Irish travellers. Lykos is black Caribbean. Other characters include an Ozzy, Essex estuary, and worst of all a Scouser. The healer/witch sounds like a batty old woman and the giants too sound ridiculous. I will be reading part three 'ruin' as a proper book.

    Overall. Read the books they are great, but give this narrator a miss. I won't be listening to anything else he's done. Sorry :-(
