The Hierarchy, high priests of the religious order the Light, rules both the magical kingdom of Albi and its religion. Worshippers in the old ways of the Earth Mother, clandestinely scattered throughout the land, are persecuted as heretics. And when missionary student Rollo Woodbridge returns to his home in Albi, he is arrested for heresy and treason, setting off a chain of events that puts everyone’s life in jeopardy and plunges the kingdom into chaos.

With Rollo in jail, the treacherous motives of the Hierarchy begin in earnest as Earl Uptree of Norcaster puts the entire Woodbridge family at risk. When two wise women rescue Rollo from prison, the family home is destroyed—but Rollo and his siblings are left alive. While his sister Maddy and his brother Brat swear vengeance, Rollo attempts to broker a peace between the faiths. While Maddy works her way into advantageous positions and Brat joins the underground resistance, Rollo tries desperately to save his kingdom’s future. As plots weave inexorably toward one another and life and death hang in the balance, the family must decide whether to stay and fight or leave Albi forever in the suspenseful, action-packed Against the Light.

    " I liked this one a ton, but I wasn't pleased with Maddy's choice. There is some language but randomly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 11/12/2013

    " It reminded me a lot of the "Children of Chaos". It was a quick, enjoyable read. I'm still looking more forward to his next Magnus brothers book. "

    " Good $.99 read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Zalatimo | 10/27/2013

    " I borrowed this book from Amazon Prime for free since I have read many of Duncan's other books. I thought it was a bit harder to get into than his others but once I did it was very good and easy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Veronika Suess | 7/8/2013

    " Stumbled upon as a kindle deal of the day on Amazon, not the usual kind of book I would choose. But I really liked it, this still up-to-date conflict between religion and politics... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 6/4/2013

    " A quick and fun read with well developed characters that are easy to fall for. Nothing groundbreaking here, but what's wrong with that? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/16/2012

    " Pretty good story, no ending to speak of. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 12/1/2012

    " Since this is an Amazon Vine book, I cannot post my review directly here. You may see it on Amazon, or here at Now is Gone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 11/25/2012

    " Another solid book by Duncan, although slightly more predicable then most, probably because I'm familiar with the period of histories (yes, plural, it's kind of mixed)that it's loosely based in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greenjasminetea | 9/21/2012

    " Interesting but slow moving. Ending suggests that it will be continued which rather annoyed me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leisuresuitlarry | 6/15/2012

    " good writing, nice style, disappointing ending "

    " I haven't read a D. Duncan book for a long time. This was great! "
