Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

The fourth book in the million-copy bestselling Kingfountain series from Jeff Wheeler.

Following the downfall of a tyrant, years have passed in prosperity for the kingdom of Ceredigion. Now, as the time comes to celebrate the new king’s nuptials, the specter of a new enemy emerges to destroy all that has been painstakingly built in those years.

Tryneowy Kiskaddon has grown up learning military and diplomatic strategy from her father, one of the king’s closest advisors. She feels her destiny lies in defending the kingdom as a knight, not as a Wizr as her parents have decided, though no lady of the realm has taken up the sword in a century. As she seeks to understand her own Fountain-blessed powers, she studies in the tradition of her mother while training in secret and closely following the realm’s politics, alarmed by her mother’s vision of an impending clash and a devastating future.

But the pieces on fate’s game board are in motion, and on the eve of battle, a threatening force irrevocably changes the future of the kingdom and her own. Does Trynne have what it takes to maneuver Ceredigion’s key players into position and outsmart the kingdom’s enemies - even those still concealed in shadow?

Addictive.

This has been such a great and addictive series. Kate Rudd, as usual, does a wonderful job narrating.

The next generation; Arthurian influences

While still in the same series, this book starts another trilogy following Owen's daughter into the next generation of intrigue and machination!

It's possible to see the influence of the King Arthur legend in the story, and that makes it all the more enjoyable.

The writer has very visibly improved his craft, comparing to the first book in the series or to the Muirwood series - which is also excellent.

Kate Rudd keeps on being awesome!

Great Continuation

This series continues on the path of intrigue. All the characters you want to learn more about with many new characters coming into their own right. In this novel the world we have come to know opens up into a much bigger one, though very little is known yet. It still has some violence, death but overall I didn't consider even as dark as some of the prior books. A great narrator, a great story, and a fairly big cliff hanger ending.

Best story of the series by far

Almost seems like this was written by a different author. Very little unnecessary dialog or filler text to get page count.

On to the next generation!

A new set of characters, and I can't help but feel like these characters are the ones that Wheeler had in mind when he began the series. The original cast from the first 3 books are still around, but this book starts the story of the next generation. Such fantastic writing. A fabulous world created here, and the story line is just beautiful. Truly one of the best fantasy series I have ever read...whether written for teen audiences or not!

Moving On

Drew has now been crowned King of Ceredigion and while this has brought a peaceful, prosperous period to the realm, war is coming. I get a little sad when a book moves on leaving characters you have grown to love behind, and this is no exception. Book 4 concentrates mainly on the children of Owen and Sinia, (Trynne); Elysabeth and Igor (Fallon); Severn and Kathryn (Morwenna).
