Publisher's Summary

After a year of fighting across three different lands, Dante and Blays have finally brought Gladdic to justice - and in the process, they've unleashed a horror beyond all reckoning.

The enemy is known as the White Lich. He is ancient. He is immensely powerful. And Gladdic believes he will soon enslave all of Tanar Atain.

Their only chance to defeat him is to strike fast, before the lich has regained his power. But attacking him directly would be suicide. Instead, Gladdic has an alternative. Once upon a time, the lich was human, with a mortal body. Gladdic believes that original body is still out there, hidden somewhere in the swamps.

If they can find it and kill it, then the lich should die with it. But if they fail, the White Lich will rip the souls from the people of Tanar Atain - and turn his gaze on the rest of the world.

    "Cycle continues to pick up speed."

    Just like the Tour de France this series of stories are full of thrills, spills, plots, subplots and suspense. You won't know until the end who will wear the maillot jaune and be declared the Winner!

    "I love this series!"

    This series has quickly jumped into my top 5 book series of all time. The narrator is extremely good at his job and keeps me immersed in the story with the whitty banter between the characters and how he portrays them. I can't wait for the next book in the series I hope it's out soon!

    "Brilliant! More Please!!"

    Its always a worry to me when reading multiple parts of a book because you never know if its going to be as good or warn out, but with that said this book 4 is absolutely amazing, it keeps me on edge for the most part and I'm asking myself constantly through this book "what's going to happen next!!??" I love how the author incorporates Gladic in this story as well as the new characters. As always the author keeps the great sense of humor of the main hero's and in my opionion goes to another level with them. The only thing I'm truly dissapointed in is how long I'm going to have to wait before the next book comes out.

    I can't wait for the next book, this was something special. The only downside is having to wait for 6-12 months for the hopeful conclusion of the cycle of Galand.

    Story
    "Great nail bitter!"

    I'm not sure where to begin..
    The story picks up right after the previous book and from there forward, all predictions were thrown out the window..
    I grew so use to the means and methods Dante and blaze operated by that I could almost always see what was going to happen next or at least envision their means to victory.

    I really enjoyed the struggle this book has to offer and the bigger picture it develops compared to the previous books in the Galand series.

    I also enjoyed seeing our main characters having to coup with a whole new feeling of hopelessness and dread and the unlikely friendships they develop along the way.


    I disliked some of the talking in circles and the slow build up to the action... but overall it was worth it.
    I'd recommend anyone who has gotten this far into the series to not stop now! You MUST experience this adventure!

    Story
    "Still a fan but this was my least favorite in the series"

    I will always love Dante and Blays, but every character in this volume was just as sarcastic as they are. None of the characters had their own voice. Ok, Beck and Naran but they barely had a pulse. Volo, Era, Gladdic, even Jonah. Where's the character who's feelings get hurt at all the sarcasm or who is resentful of it but never says anything or who is funny without being sarcastic or is just shy and thoughtful or ANY personality rather than strong and sarcastic. I'm annoyed. And the philosophizing got really long-winded and was coming from everywhere and everyone. I felt like a prisoner on a firing line getting hit with philosophy bullets out of 10 machine guns. More multi-faceted characters next time Mr. Robertson! More story, less philosophy! I will not give up on Blays and Dante but gah! Help a sister out! The end.

    "Excellent"

    Yet another enchanting story from the mind of Edward W. Robertson, a writer who is rapidly becoming my favorite author. Not to mention the superb reading of Mr. Reynolds who once again magically brought not only the story but the characters to life. My only regret is the lack of another book in this series to continue reading.

    "Exciting and Engaging Continuation of the Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really like the Cycle of Arawn and Cycle of Galand series; while the author does struggle a little with giving different mannerisms and speech to different characters, the series' stories are otherwise well-paced and balanced. So I recommend this series to anyone who likes swords and sorcery style of books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The tension and release cycling made for an exciting ride. The suspension of disbelief was pretty easy, and unlike make fantasy stories, the author still does a pretty good job making the arcane system "make sense" in its own way and keep to its discovered rules. I do think he might be running into the problem of ramping up the power of sorcery more and more, but it isn't unmanageable yet.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I feel like many readers' answer to this question would be a big fat spoiler.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is very well presented. I have read one of the books in the series, but hearing it performed by Reynolds is even better. I don't normally feel that audiobooks are a better experience than reading a book (usually I am indifferent), but the narrator Reynolds does such a good job with the Cycle books that I actually liked listening to one better than reading one.
