Publisher's Summary

The Tide Lords are returning and that means every man, woman and child is in danger... Arkady is exiled to the repressive Torlenian capital, where she makes some unexpected friends and some powerful enemies, all of whom seem bent on using her to wreak vengeance on each other. Things are not going smoothly for Declan Hawkes, the King's Spymaster, either, and not just because the Empress of the Five Realms has turned up in Caelum with her family.

Jaxyn Aranville is determined to quash any opposition to his plans for the Glaeban throne and Arkady's husband, the Duke of Lebec, is on his way. And in the stark deserts of Torlenia, a meeting between two powerful Tide Lords could put to rest eight thousand years of enmity...or not...

What the Critics Say

"This second book in Fallon's series is just as pleasing as the first. The characters and dialogue are intelligent and imaginative, and the reader is drawn deep into the world of Amyrantha. Its gods, humans and slaves are created with a fine hand and complement the intriguing storyline. Fallon's fantasy will keep you turning pages to the end, and leave you wanting more when you reach the final page." (Book Reviews)

    "And boom, suddenly the series is amazing."

    So i had my doubts after the first book of this series, and i think i even said it just felt like a lot of build up. Well, while this one still has build up it also has a lot of pay off. The characters feel more fleshed out, the history of the tide lords is more interesting and i think this comes from the fact that we have 3-4 telling of the past rather than just Cayal. And a pretty big twist at the end that i missed until it hit me in the face is always a good thing, straight on to the next book.

    Story
    "Really interesting with some humour"

    What I liked about this book was that despite not having read the 1st book in the Tide Lords series, I was able to pick up the storyline and get into it; I found it really engaging. I loved the subtle humour here and there - I had a few "laugh out loud" moments. I enjoyed the strength of the characters and the steady build-up in the storyline and I was compelled to get the follow-up books.
    However, I was disappointed with the last two books in this series. The storyline although somewhat complex, slowly loses its finesse in the last 2 books, almost as if it was not thoroughly thought through and made up along the way, throwing in more characters and twists in a chaotic manner while dragging out the story!! Unfortunately, on the whole, the scenes or the fictional worlds were/was not sufficiently or creatively described to inspire belief and imagination.
    The narrator was ok, but his voice variations seemed somewhat limited thereby not able to keep up and give the numerous characters distinctive voices, especially in the last 2 books as the interaction and number of characters increase.

    "Fascinating, leaves you wanting more NOW!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gods of Amyrantha to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but enjoyed the audio version very much. Very easy to listen to and narrator was vety good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the fact that even if you suspect something is a little off, you can still be surprised when the twist is laid out for you. That really makes a book more enjoyable for me.


    What does John Telfer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I personally really enjoy the way he reads. And I feel that he gives the caracters life, slight changes in tones makes each character have a voice of their own, which is nice, even if they have not said who is talking I know which character is speaking, which means I don't have to keep going back to figure who is talking. A big plus for me.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Gripping, and leaves you waiting and wanting more.


    Any additional comments?

    I stumbled onto this author while looking for something else, glad that I did. Look forward to reading and listening to more from her.
