Publisher's Summary

Threatened by an Elloryan invasion reinforced by the Ancients, the sanctuary Ember and Max sought in DormaSai after Kael’s burial is at its end. A civil war rages in Cethos, and the threat of Wildland tribal attacks in the Blood Kingoms is imminent. They can offer no help to their Southern neighbors, leaving DormaSai as all that stands in the Ancients’ way. When the peace conclave crumbles and the Ancients are forced from DormaSai by unexpected allies, Ember and Max turn their attention to preparing for the Ancients’ inevitable return.

One year after Kael’s death, the Ancients return for the Human Animus seal, and with them, comes the full might of Emperor Mero’s Elloryan military machine. On the dawn of war, startling information from the North reaches the DormaSai military camp as King Kohl’s spies return from Corynth. They bring tales of a DeathWizard restoring the rightful Bale heir to the Cesthosian throne and freeing Talohna’s only ArchWizard from the clutches of the DragonKin.

Ember, Max, and Yrlissa are convinced that only one DeathWizard would have cause to do either - Kael.

As war with Ellorya erupts, their hope that Kael is somehow back from the dead must be set aside. The war that all of Talohna has dreaded for so long is about to begin, and hope is a rare commodity during any war.

Contains mature content.

good but predictable

well i enjoy most of this series it is very predictable. all the main characters are always one step behind the ancients and it get old. every encounter the ancients end up coming out on top. Even when the main characters becomes OP he still cant win and he turns into a whiner complaining about everything. hopefully the author will mix it up in the next book.

A worthy read

JD Franx continues to demonstrate his excellent writing skills with book 3, along with Simon Vance providing a lively narrating performance. While the story provided many quests for Kael and a rather long trial for Ember, the broadening of the world building to include not only Talohna but also Kael's battles through the 9 circles of the underworld was somewhat of an elongated distraction from the primary story arc. Also, the introduction of so many fantastical creatures, including angels made it difficult to determine whenever a clash between factions occurred which tribes/species were fighting for and against Kael & Ember.

Even so, I did find the story entertaining.

Expected more

This was a book I was looking forward to getting because the story was getting better, but I really expected more. I thought that the moves that the MC made were not consistent with the storyline. People who needed to be killed, humans, demons or angels didn't get killed when it would've been better all around for the MC, whenever he's willing to kill others, it just doesn't make sense to me. If the story doesn't turn around, I am going to be done with this story, lets see if the next book will be better. Simon was great as always and he was the reason why I started down this line anyways, so I can give him one more book.
