Publisher's Summary

Kelvin Wiltshire lives the life of a simple cook in a remote village on the far side of Trendham.

The townsfolk think little of the man and his son and believe him to be just another refugee from the Terabinian war. On cold winter nights, they share rumors of the bloody conflict and the mysterious death of Will Cartwright, the mighty mage who had the power to command storms.

They like the new cook. They fear the fallen king. But the two men are one and the same.

Haunted by nightmares from his past, Will has chosen a life of exile, hoping to erase the blood from his soul by forging a simple life. Service and family might ease his pain, but beneath his scars are deeper wounds: a queen and wife turned into a lich, friends poisoned with hate. While he seeks peace in isolation, his absence has left a void, and an ancient foe craves a return to power.

Patient and malevolent, the enemy knows the nature of man, and anger is an oh-so-useful tool in the game of nations. As war looms, Will’s anonymity—and the life he’s built—are threatened, forcing him to choose between the friends of his past and the friends of his present. To win, he’ll need what he left behind: the mantle of the Stormking.

Critic Reviews

"In a realm meticulously populated with trolls, elves, dragons, and mages, Reynolds is at his best giving lively voices to nosy aunts, curious cousins, and a brother-in-law with a heart of gold." —AudioFile Magazine

Shallow, cringe and the author has a sick mind

The story is very simple minded and predictable. Little time goes to advancing the story. The sexual scenes are so cringe it’s like a horny teenagers fantasies. Of course we have the mandatory gay character shoehorned into the story for no reason. So much cringe. The author has psychological issues, which he is passing as “art”. Don’t waste your time or money.

Amazing Book!

I loved this book so much! There were times when I got a bit annoyed by the thoughts of Will’s son, but it just shows how invested I have been invested into the previous series and even more now for this one! Highly recommend. 👍

Fantastic book

I absolutely love following Wills story. i seriously had to force myself to slow down listening to the book or id binge listen in only a few days. listening before bed is so dangerous as i ended up extending the sleep timer constantly until i was tired for work the next day.

if you are looking for a new series to read i strongly recomend this one and the previous series following Will.
