Summary

Taimin and Selena must discover the truth about their world - before it’s too late.

In a world of secrets, Taimin and Selena are desperate for answers. They need to discover the truth about their origins and the firewall that borders the wasteland. If they don’t find the hidden path they seek, the citizens of Zorn will die. 

As they make the perilous journey to the distant firewall, Taimin and Selena are joined by three companions: a young healer, a weapons trader, and an old rover. Together the five are in constant danger, unable to rely on Selena’s powers as she has lost the ability to farcast - and she doesn’t know how to get it back. 

Now Taimin finds himself hunted by a new enemy - a strange creature on a bloodthirsty quest of his own. Taimin and Selena get ever closer to the answers that are essential to their survival. But will they learn the truth in time to save themselves?

Disappointed

Possible this story could have been told in half the pages. It seemed to take a long time to say little. Far more happened in the first book.

Excellent story so far.

As always Mr. Maxwell gives us a well written story with characters that you want to root for and a mystery that slowly unravels at the perfect pace. I'm very much looking forward to the next installment of this series! The audio performance was superb and really sucks you into the story.

COWARDLY IGNORANT WRITTER!!!

This narrator is not meant to voice warriors. He is more fit to do grocery clerks and motherly nuns. Also this author, while it's a decent story, is never faced a death or survival fight against any creature that stands a chance at slaying a human adult. He writes like a submissive slave cowed by his masters back hand. I have been to war and had people try to kill me. Once you have that experience, a warrior NEVER frets over using his enemies weaknesses against him! That is the price to when playing the game of life or death. A cowardly hero is no hero. Most heros never survive their act of heroism and die so others may live. They do not run away and leave others to die. They die so others can run.

What a great start to a fun fantasy triligy! I love the disabled characters who have to deal with their limitations. I truly enjoyed this and am looking for more!

Well paced, thoroughly enjoyable

The story continues where book one ended, with the main characters off in search of the lush land that had water and vegetation as opposed to the desert-like conditions where they currently live. The relationships between the main characters and the other races continues to evolve as they journey in search of water. Simon Vance is one of my favorite readers and his performance is outstanding with this story as well. The book is well paced and at times, hard to put down. It ends well and presumably sets up for the next one. It is short, only 8 hours, but does not have the bloat that some longer stories do. Strongly recommended.

Now What!!

There is sti.ll a Huge Obstacle in the way of their Nirvana and beginning of a new safer Life. I am hoping that one more try to vanquish these overpowering threats can be destroyed. Ta.ien and the other races must find a way. So far, they have brought the firewall down. It time to start
