Still reeling from plague and civil war, the winter kingdoms face an invasion force from across the northern sea led by a dark spirit mage in the name of ancient, vanquished gods. Summoner-king Martris Drayke and an untested generation of new rulers must stand against an unholy alliance of shadowy invaders. To prevail, Tris must win the uncertain support of the dread, spirit-beings that stand guard within the sacred barrows over an even more fearsome threat imprisoned within. In the balance lies not only the freedom of the winter kingdoms but Tris’s life and the soul of his young son, whose untested magic might be the biggest spoil of war.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Patrice | 11/28/2013

    " As with all the other books in the series, this is part of a duology within a longer series and I think concludes Martin's Chronicles of the Necromancer books. I really enjoyed this series and I like how things turned out. I am also looking foward to Martin's next book series. "

    " This has become one of my favorite fantasy series. I love all of the characters, and I love that the focus stays on them rather than spending too time on what the villains are thinking. I hope there will be more books set in this world. "

    " I thought the book was great. I enjoyed how the story can continue with the children of the characters. While I understand why they had smaller parts, or were entirely missing, I did miss some of the characters. Overall a good read "

    " I have enjoyed the books in this world and plan the read future works from the author. The characters are good and enjoyable but there are times when the books seem to wind down very quickly at the end of the story. "
