Summary

Rectar has always had his sights set on conquering the human lands. His demonic invasion of the west is gaining momentum - an unrelenting horde, unhindered by food or sleep. Now, only the undermanned Splintering Isles lie between the demons, and the human kingdom of Brevia. If the islands fall, the rest of Tenalp will soon follow.

The Three Races must work together if they are to survive, but they have another problem - Castallan. The traitorous wizard has raised a deadly rebellion, and declared himself King of Humans. He believes himself safe in the bowels of his impenetrable Bastion fortress, but Darnuir, now King of Dragons, intends to break those walls at all costs. To face these threats, all dragons, humans, and fairies must truly unite; yet old prejudices may undermine Darnuir's efforts, once again. And as the true intentions of all are revealed, so too is a secret that may change the entire world.

A complex, political fantasy full of battles, betr

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you enjoyed the first, you're bound to enjoy this true epic.

What did you like best about this story?

Races ally and yet bicker, fight together and against one another. With more politics and intrigue than the first, answered questions lead to more mystery in this well developed world.

Did Dave Cruse do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Whilst it took me a while to get used to the narrator, it's not a bad narration and the story is certainly strong enough to keep this a solid 4* book!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Intrigue.

Any additional comments?

I'd say this sequel is as strong as the debut (which is always a worry when I start a series) and leaves me wanting to know what happens next as lines are drawn under some big events, only to reveal more mischief on the horizon for our 'goodies' and 'baddies' (it's pretty grey on the old moral scale in there, to be fair).

The second book is as good as the first.

A Dragon king, a princess and a guardian try to get rid of the shadow. A great second book. I would like another. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
