"The evil foretold has risen...and we are all that stands between it and the end." Asher has come a long way for a fisherman's son. Together with his friend Prince Gar, he has defended their kingdom against its bitterest enemy, but at great cost. Now, the evil mage Morg is preparing for his most deadly assault. Desperate, trapped in a broken body, Morg has little time and fewer scruples. And he has a plan. As Gar and Asher unwittingly fall into a dangerous deception, Morg gets ever closer to his goal. And this victory would be particularly sweet...for who better to destroy the kingdom than the two who would give anything to save it? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I actually really enjoyed this book. It was a fairly good conclusion to the story of Asher, the Innocent Mage. Of course the ending was sad and I felt like too many of the main characters died. But, I suppose not everyone can survive the world saving battle. The battle at the end was a little too quick paced. Everything happened at once and then it was over. Throughout the book I was continually frustrated with how different characters handled things, but once again I suppose if I wanted them to do what I thought was right...I would have written the book!. Overall very enjoyable read. "

    " Although the style of the author irritates me (disappearance of the pronouns, all the time, no matter whose pov it is...), the story is good: the plot is really interesting, unexpected developments regularly pop up and it's all tightly tied up with the characters and their emotions, their histories. It's that last part that kept me going and made the books work for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 2/10/2014

    " The second and final installment of the series makes an exciting, suspenseful, and satisfying conclusion. I really like the fact that this series was so unique: 1) only two books in length as opposed to the typical trilogy or epic fantasy that won't end but probably should; 2) did not have the typical fantasy races (dwarves, elves) or monsters (orcs, dragons); 3) the main character was charming because he was truly your average Joe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Serenity | 2/1/2014

    " A great ending to a two book series. I was very attached to many of the characters; I hated some, loved others, and like with all good books I find myself forgetting that the story was not the history of my own world. There were scenes where I wished more could have been written, but overall I rate it a 5/5. Karen Miller has never disappointed me yet. I will be reading her sequel series "Fishermen's Children" but not until I have both books in hand. If they're anything like the rest of Miller's books, then I'll want--and need--to read them back to back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/24/2014

    " Excellent conclusion to the first book. Awesome reflecting covers too, huh? As the battle scene approached, I thought I would be disappointed by the ending, because I enjoy lengthy mage battles. Instead, the angle of the scene was unique and intensely interesting. A fast and fun set. Loved the language in it, and I'm amazed at how many humorous and working jokes and references to the sea she created. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Jones | 1/15/2014

    " Fantastic humane characters made the story, a good plot made it a brilliant story. Asher's journey is full of pain and beauty, with the final few chapters stealing the show. Well worth every turn of a page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gwen | 1/10/2014

    " Second book in a two-book series. The first book was good, though it was a bit hard at first getting used to an uneducated hick as the protagonist... The second book was even better than the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott wachter | 1/10/2014

    " should a good build across this and the 1st book, but could not stick the landing. like at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 1/2/2014

    " The book was every bit as good as its prequel, the Innocent Mage, up until the ending. The ending was...a flop. That's the best way I can think of to describe it without giving anything away. None of the real problems that the author set up were solved by the end. Very frustrating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pauline | 12/18/2013

    " Short comment here. Thought it was a very successful ending to this tale. I was a little sad with the ending but it fit very well with what we know about the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Britny Brooks | 12/14/2013

    " Check out my review for the first novel in the series, Innocent Mage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 12/11/2013

    " Much better than the first book since all the characters are in place. Still a very good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diandra | 12/2/2013

    " I quite enjoyed this. It was a little slow and puttery in some spots, and was typical of Miller's style in that the last few chapters held the majority of the action. Regardless, it was a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 11/19/2013

    " Definitely a disappointing and foreseeable ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aliyyah | 9/30/2013

    " This second novel is a deeper, darker turn into this fantasy adventure world. Friendships and relationships are tested, more good characters die, but the ending seems to be pretty good; maybe another book to look at Lur and old Dorana a few hundred years later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 7/8/2013

    " Even being only two books long this was a lot of work for a mediocre ending. It really fell off the second half of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bellady | 6/18/2013

    " yes, it's confirmed. i do like her :) "

    " I have enjoyed Karen Miller's books. This is the second one I have read on a recommendation from Amazon. She has developed a nice set of characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Smith | 1/30/2012

    " Great conclusion to the Innocent Mage! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 8/22/2011

    " I liked this one much less than the first in the series. I felt like 3/4 of the book I was stuck reading from the villains perspective. Which is something that always annoys me. Too bad, because I really liked the first one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 4/30/2011

    " The book was equally good as the first book maybe even a little better all the way up until towards the end.... It was just simply annoying as a ending and left a bad taste in the mouth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 3/26/2011

    " Done finally!!! This is was are really looong book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 3/22/2011

    " I wasn't disappointed. This second and final of the two was just as exciting as the first. Loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justine | 12/17/2010

    " Not as engrossing as some of her other work, but a decent read. I doubt it's something I will re-read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 11/23/2010

    " Even being only two books long this was a lot of work for a mediocre ending. It really fell off the second half of this book. "

    " @q@
    Everything leading up to the ending was fantastic! From Asher's Weather magic to Dathne's pregnancy, everything was set up in a perfect order ro lead up to the epic ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terence | 11/6/2010

    " Good book, nothing ground breaking. Asher always felt to me as a bit of anti-hero overdone, shying away from his gift a bit to much for to really enjoy him as a character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 11/2/2010

    " Definitely a disappointing and foreseeable ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristan | 10/24/2010

    " The second and final book was also quite predictable. I did enjoy the authors style, if not the story. "
