Summary

The Banished Lands are torn by war as the army of High King Nathair sweeps the realm, challenging all who oppose his holy crusade. Allied with the manipulative Queen Rhin of Cambren, there are few who can stand against him. But Rhin is playing her own games and has her eyes on a far greater prize....

Left for dead - her kin have fled, and her country is overrun with enemies - Cywen fights to survive. But any chance of escape is futile once Nathair and his disquieting advisor, Calidus, realize who she is. They have no intention of letting such a prize slip from their grasp. For she may be their one chance at killing the biggest threat to their power.

Meanwhile the young warrior Corban flees from his conquered homeland with his exiled companions, heading for the only place that may offer them sanctuary. But to get there they must travel through Cambren, avoiding warbands, giants, and the vicious wolven of the mountains. And all the while Corban struggles to become the man everyone believes him to be - the Bright Star and saviour of the Banished Lands.

Embroiled in struggles for power and survival, the mortal world is unaware of the greatest threat of all. In the Otherworld dark forces scheme to bring a host of the Fallen into the world of flesh to end the war with the Faithful once and for all.

Great swords and sorcery tale

Very well performed, different accents help distinguish between the many different characters.
The storyline is somewhat predictable as you'd expect in this kind of novel but the pace keeps it interesting.

gets better

1st book was a slow build but worth it. The 2nd takes off from the start. Now heavily invested in the key characters ..

Never ending violence

Although I loved the story, and the performance was great, I am becoming numb to the blood spurted. and arms torn off etc which never seemed to stop for more than 1 minute at any time throughout. Maybe a little more bit of just story telling would make the violent bits a bit more shocking?
