Summary

Would you - could you? - uphold the law at the cost of those you love?

Falcio val Mond, First Cantor of the Greatcoats, is on the brink of fulfilling his dead King's dream: Aline is about to take the throne and restore the rule of law once and for all. But for the Greatcoats, nothing is ever that simple.

In neighbouring Avares, an enigmatic new warlord is uniting the barbarian armies, and, even worse, he is rumoured to have a new ally: Falcio's old nemesis Trin. With the armies of Avares at her back, she'll be unstoppable.

Falcio, Kest and Brasti go racing north to stop her, but in those cold, treacherous climes they discover something altogether different - and far more dangerous: a new player plans to take the throne of Tristia, and the Greatcoats, for all their determination and skill, may not be able to stop him.

Enjoyed all four books

I really enjoyed these books. Not quite Brandon Sanderson or Tad Williams but almost. Kept me listening when ever possible. Loved the humour and a great narrator.

well what an end to a fantastic series

I will read these time and again the make you laugh a lot and cry at times. it's a book about a 3 way bromance and it's a brilliant end to the story. Except for one thing that is winding me up.

Gutted!

Can’t believe it’s over... I would quite happily listen to the adventures of the Greatcoats forever! Can’t wit for the series to be revived!
Again, narrator does a brilliant job!!

Amazing!

From the very first book to the very last word of this novel, both the author and narrator are truly brilliant. To me, I thought nothing would ever beat The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, however this comes so close to it that I almost (almost!) put this story as my number one!
