National bestselling author Anne Bishop’s novels have been hailed as “genuine gems” (SF Site) and “lavishly sensual” (Library Journal). In her highly anticipated second book in the Tir Alainn Trilogy, she weaves a dazzling tale of romance, high adventure, and thrilling fantasy. 

Ever since the slaughter of the witches, the Fae—who should be shielding their long-lost cousins from danger—have ignored the needs of the rest of the world. And shadows are again gathering in the eastern villages—dark, potent shadows that threaten the lives of every witch, woman, and Fae. Only three Fae can stand against the growing madness and help prevent more bloodshed—the Bard, the Muse, and the Gatherer of Souls. Aiden, the Bard, knows how desperately the world depends upon the Fae’s protection. But the Fae refuse to heed his warnings about the wickedness lurking amid the trees. 

Now Aiden and his one true love—Lyrra, the Muse—must embark on a perilous journey to find the one Fae who can convince the rest to leave their secure perches to save the witches and mortals. Because if the Fae don’t act soon, no one will survive.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/20/2014

    " Just when I think that I can't like anything better than one of Anne Bishop's books, I read another and find that it's possible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda | 2/15/2014

    " It was a good continuation of the first book and at least did not leave me rolling my eyes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 2/13/2014

    " I liked this one better than the first in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer W. | 2/7/2014

    " This book has a lot of darkness in it left over from the first book, but as always with Anne Bishop she balances the darkness that she has no fear of writing about with the good things humanity (and fae) are capable of: kindness, love, bravery, joy. It's a wonderful book, it won't knock your socks off like The Black Jewels, but it definitely gives you a wonderful sense of fulfillment, and I actually didn't mind some of the more sappy lovey dovey things because they helped bring light to the shadows in the story. ^_^ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa | 1/30/2014

    " The power of the witches is finally being taking seriously...Just loved it, can't wait to read the third one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evyl | 1/18/2014

    " Very good book. I couldn't put it down. I must have read this book in less than a week. "

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

    " This series is not as good as the Black Jewels series. But it is worth reading. Again it took a little while to get into the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 12/9/2013

    " I totally fell in love with this series. This book didn't suffer too much from middle book syndrome, though there wasn't that much of a big conflict, or too much face time with the main baddie. There was a lot of getting to know the wide range of heroes and heroines, though, and I liked that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 6/2/2013

    " This is book two of the Alainn trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 5/21/2013

    " This is a great series and like all her others I find myself smiling while I read or laughing out loud "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/19/2012

    " More of the same after Pillars of the World. Pass the popcorn! The bad guys' names were a bit cringe-worthy, but I'm not telling. (September 08, 2004) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 1/8/2012

    " I enjoyed this one--it's definitely the best book in Tir Alain Trilogy. A lot of readers seemed to have disliked this, but I actually found it to be enjoyable and addictive like Anne Bishop normally is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 7/25/2011

    " A good middle book of the trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilleary | 7/4/2011

    " Great book i could not put it down "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 6/22/2011

    " This is the second book, a little more dry than the previous. But then again, I often find that the second book in the trilogy is hard to keep me entertained. Learn more about secondary characters, which I appreciated. Nothing spectacular however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/30/2011

    " This series is not as good as the Black Jewels series. But it is worth reading. Again it took a little while to get into the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 10/4/2010

    " Oh man... it isn't well written, and even though I am super feminist, I like political messages in books to be a little less EXTREMELY OBVIOUS.

    ...but I'll still read the last book in the series. Whatever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 6/13/2010

    " I liked this one better than the first in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/26/2010

    " A great continuation, even better than the first. This book focuses less on Ari and more on the Fae; the character shift was a quick, easy transition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda | 11/26/2008

    " It was a good continuation of the first book and at least did not leave me rolling my eyes. "
