Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The epic conclusion to the best-selling Empire of Salt series from master storyteller Conn Iggulden.

The news from the north is grim.

An army is massing under the new king of Feal. They head towards Darien - city of the Twelve families - demanding allegiance, or war.

Tellius, Speaker to the Council, knows this divided city will never stand against such a terrible foe.

But Tellius has a plan.

He will assemble a band of heroes. Men and women who once before aided Darien in her time of need.

They will come if he calls.

The army approaches.

The trumpets of war sound.

A great city holds its breath.

And a desperate plan unfolds....

Fantastic series

Conn Iggulden has long been one of my favourite authors from his Caesar and Genghis Khan series, and his first fantasy series is gripping and leaves you wanting more. Please write another one in the series Conn, there's so much more to find out about the Empire of Salt.

The narrator also does a brilliant job and each character is well defined vocally. Thanks both for a great story.

Absolutely brilliant

I had this on Audible and was walking around entranced by the plot. Unfortunately I binge-listened so it was over far too soon. Highly recommended

Great Story

Another great book in the series, well thought out and well read. It leaves itself open for hopefully more books to follow.

good story

Something a bit different. A good story & well narrated. As with some other books by this author I find the ending a bit sudden with lack of detail.

left wanting more

there is never enough of the books in this series. the writing and performance have left me thoroughly invested in every character (reluctantly in the case of John Deeds) and I cried at "That Bit" on the walls (no spoilers but some concerned Starbucks customers). I want them all to have happy endings (except for Deeds).

Never enough Elias. Ever. And he's so Sean Bean in my head it's not even funny.

Elias and Nancy are the OTP. fight me!
