Publisher's Summary

Darkness threatens Ranadon again in the form of an eclipse. The Goddess wants to give the people of Ranadon a sign - and only Dirk Provin can interpret it. To do so, Dirk has systematically betrayed his one-time allies to join his most hated enemies. Now, with neither side trusting him, Dirk sets his own devious plot in motion. Senet’s Crippled Prince, Misha, has found unexpected and tenuous sanctuary among the Baenlanders of Mil. To secure their trust, he offers them the one thing they cannot refuse.

Meanwhile, Alenor, Queen of Dhevyn, betrayed by her husband, Kirsh, and Tia Veran, deceived by Dirk, set out for revenge and to finally free their people at any cost. As the second sons and the rest of their generation pursue different paths to survival and freedom, they discover that the will of the Goddess - and of men - works in mysterious ways. And as Dirk’s old enemies join with new ones, his attempt to save Ranadon may cost him his friends, his love...and his life.

What the Critics Say

"The final installment in the Second Sons trilogy ties together the tangled threads of years of spying and plotting. With her customary flair, Fallon delineates motivation and consequence, bringing home the price of freedom. Dirk can see no other path than the one he's set for himself, and readers feel his pain at deceiving those he loves. Fantasy readers have welcomed Fallon's fresh voice and will not be disappointed; she remains true to her passionate characters as she brings this epic to a stirring conclusion." (Book Reviews)

    "outstanding series"

    Beautifully crafted. World building and storytelling of the highest quality. Jennifer Fallon had shaped a story across three books that is up there with the modern fantasy classics.

    "Exciting, but not as satisfying as I'd like"

    I'm not sure how to review this one... its good like the previous books, but it's probably a bit too serious. I felt frustration for most of the book (for the characters and the misunderstandings driven through the plot). And I'm not sure I liked the conclusion. It just felt... not as thought out like the previous books. Or maybe it felt weird how everyone is suddenly in a really high and powerful position. Or how characters that were introduced only in the third book took a very important part of the plot. Not sure what it is that made me no quite as satisfied.
    Having said that, it still had me at the edge of my seat, and I just had to know what happens next. So all in all, it was pretty good. :)
    As for the narrator - Joe Jameson remained consistent throughout the series. Excellent in every way, perfect acting, lots of emotion. Simply brilliant

    "Great series."

    It was a bit heard to get used to a man playing all the female parts and for a long while I honestly thought the narrator played the younger men as a little slow witted sounding. But after a while it grew on me. Otherwise the story was well written and the characters are fleshed out and I appreciate the fact that not everyone in the story is a hero. Good series, I would recommend it.
