Publisher's Summary

Dante and Blays have forced Gladdic from the Collen Basin. But the victory might be only the first battle in a much larger war. With the land on the brink of starvation and politically fractured, Dante and Blays scramble to secure Collen's food, borders, and allies. Before their work is done, rumor arrives from Mallon. The enemy is mustering for another attack.

Even if Collen can weather the coming storm, there's no guarantee their independence will last out the year. During a border raid, Dante learns Gladdic has fled to the shadowy realm of Tanar Atain, home of the Andrac.

And the secrets Gladdic returns with could tip the balance of power forever.

Dante and Blase are always entertaining

I have followed Dante and Blase since "The Cycle of Arawn" and the little touches of humorous reactions between them is always worth a chuckle or three.

Absolute Genius

Forget Batman and Robin, this is the dynamic Duo! The writing is as good as it gets. Unbelievable evolving story going back to the first cycle. Should be a series of movies but would be a larger undertaking than LOTR. Author is one of my favorites. Reynolds is a superb narrator. I've even started buying anything he lends his voice to. He makes these fantastic books come totally alive.

I'd put these books right up there with LOTR, Game of Thrones, and King's epic Dark Tower series, and I'm not sure I wouldn't put these at the front of the pack. Amazing!

Always love the "Cycles of"

I used to not be a fan of audio books, I'd rather have a hard copy in my hands - feverishly turning the pages... however, the duo that narrator and author make has me absolutely hooked on this series, as I was hooked on the previous. Job well done, both of you. I am so glad that I saved my credits for this and was very excited by the authors note at the end.

One of the best series

I stumbled upon Dante and Blays out of sheer luck 2 years ago, I've listened to the cycle of arawn many times, along with the first two books in the cycle of galand series, it's a exciting story with great twist and turns that keeps you on the edge of your sit waiting for what happens next. I can't wait for the fourth book and continue this adventure. Going back for another listen now!!

amazing

these books are the best fantasy ive read in years. characters, story, world building and everything else is incredible, not to mention the relationship and rapport between Dante and blays is some of the best diologue I've read .

new characters to join the Dante squad show promise to be unique and interesting as well and the scale and stakes that Dante and blays are fighting for/against are gaining momentum at incredible speed to a climax that brings their saga to a whole new tier of imortance.
must read 100%

just yes

the only thing I didn't like was when the book ended. this is the only series that I've ever read (or listened to) that has captivated me to a point where I forget that I'm not in that world. when something grabs my attention IRL, it's as if I'm being forcibly snapped back to reality. can I do 6/5? I'm gonna say 6/5. cannot wait until the next one. felt palpable despair knowing I was at the end of the book.

Awesome

One of my favorite series. I'm very excited for the continuation. The cynical and sarcastic banter between Dante and Blaze relates so similar to relations I have! So well done! Can't wait for the next!

This series and this author are hidden gems.

The first cycle takes roughly half a book to get going, but its well worth the wait as soon as the relationship between Andre and Blaze (disregard the names for now, they grow on you) forms. From there on out it is a fantastic series that continually blurs the lines between good and evil. This second series does not fall short by any means, and helps build a world that is truly fascinating. It feels very much like buddycop fantasy, much in the same way as Scott Lynch or Michael Sullivan create with their series. Just the right amount of brutality, without going so far overboard that it feels like he's trying too hard to be edgy.
