Summary

King of ruin. King of dust and shadows. King of death. He will rule all. The King is coming.

Marith Altrersyr - father-killer, dragonlord, leader of the blood-soaked Amrath Army - is keeping his promises. He is determined to become King of all Irlast and take back the seat of his ancestors.

Only Thalia, once high priestess of the Lord of Living and Dying, the holiest woman in the Empire, might stop Marith and his army’s deadly march. But she is torn between two destinies - and if she was to return home, what would she find there? A city on the brink of ruin: diseased, despairing, dying?

Crawling through a tunnel deep under the ruins of her city, Landra Relast vows vengeance. Her family has been burned, her home destroyed, and now Marith - once her betrothed - must die.

But as Landra cuts through the wasteland left in the wake of Marith’s army, she finds that she is not the only one who wishes him ill....

Excellent

Love this series, traditional fantasy narration is eschewed for literary devices that could be at home in a classic. Stellar performance by Colin Mace and Merial Rosenkranz, at times sounding more like a poetic edda than your average fantasy epic. Brutal and extremely depressing, I relished every second. Can't recommend this series enough.
