Publisher's Summary

In the land of Eileanan, the Pact of Peace has not meant the end of unrest. Isault and Lachlan must continue to deal with their military position in Tirsoilleir - where a spy has compromised their tactical secrets, leaving them at a tremendous loss.

Isabeau, the witch, longs to rejoin her sister and her home in these uncertain times, but she must first complete one last task for her teachers. To find her true purpose in life, she must reach the Skull of the World and listen to the silent words of the White Gods. Few survive. But those who do are changed forever. 

Now, when she does return home, she does so with an extraordinary gift. But when Margrit of Arran decides to take advantage of Lachlan’s absence by kidnapping his son and heir to the throne, Isabeau must learn to use her gifts in the face of evil - and overcome her enemy once and for all.

loved it

I've never read this series before, or even heard of it, and it took me a while to get into it. but by the end of the third book in the series I was hooked, with the fourth I was enthralled, and this one managed to raise my opinion even higher still. I already have the last book downloaded and ready, and I cant wait to see how all of these characters and stories are woven together.

Enough with the singing!

I really like the series but the singing has to go. There were songs that were a good two minutes long in this book. I don’t think it adds to the story. The book could have been shorter, without the songs, and been just as good and you would not have missed any information needed. If you are anything like me, be prepared to hit the skip button a bunch.

awesome book

I have read the paperback version of this book more times than I can count and I have loved this series since I first discovered it. I was so excited to see it is finally coming out on audible. The narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life and speaking in a clear voice. Although the accent is heavy, it is easily understood and really brings the characters different personalities to life. The voices used make it extremely easy to differentiate between each character. I highly recommend this book. If you love a story of magic and sci fi filled with great accents and a gripping story then this series is for you.
