Publisher's Summary

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jeff Wheeler continues the acclaimed Kingfountain Series with a vast expansion of this spellbinding world. Thrust into the heart of events threatening to rip her kingdom apart, young Trynne Kiskaddon will gain new powers and see old allies fall and new heroes rise as the battle for the kingdom and the lands beyond begins.

Courtly intrigue and rumors of invasion plunge Kingfountain into turmoil as the search for Trynne's father begins in earnest. But Trynne's quest to learn the truth of Owen's sinister disappearance is sidetracked when tragedy strikes her family once again. Suddenly, the future of the kingdom rests in her hands as she struggles to learn - and control - the power that can keep the threatening Deep Fathoms at bay.

When King Gahalatine unleashes his overwhelming forces against the realm, Trynne must draw on her political instincts, warrior training, and Fountain-blessed magic if she hopes to survive the chaos to come. But a final, epic confrontation will force Trynne into an unimaginable choice: save her kingdom and the lives of her people, or lose the one who means more to her than life itself.

Truly excellent next installment in the series

The story alone stands as a testament to Wheeler's talent, but the surprise is in the convergence of multiple story lines. If you haven't read Wheeler's other series yet, start now.

I've fallen completely for Trynne and Fallon, even though my heart is also breaking for all that they experience. Wheeler continues to blow me away with his ability to draw deep emotional reactions from readers, while also portraying his characters as smart, savvy, emotionally intelligent heroines and heroes.

I cannot WAIT to find out what happens in the final installment of the Kingfountain series.

I'll take Jeff Wheeler over George Martin anyday

Seriously. While I do think George Martin is a talented writer and world-builder, I think Wheeler writes his characters fantastically. They're realistic: they feel and fear and love and overcome obstacles. Better yet: there's no gratuitous sex and profanity so yay for that!

Trynne has become one of my favorite heroines of all time, and Kate Rudd voices her perfectly.

great story but left waiting for more

This is the first book of the series that left hanging threads between two books. its a great stiry - but a little disconcerting to be keft hanging in the story lines of a couple characters.

He is an amazing author. His books are very well written, very descriptive, they don't leave you wondering. And he has a fascinating imagination.

Enjoyably good book

I enjoyed this almost as much as all his other books, but it didn't have quiet the twist of emotions some of his other books have. The wretched remains to date one of my favorites for that very reason.
