David Anthony Durham presents the thrilling new installment in his ambitious Acacia trilogy, which has been praised by the Washington Post as “gripping and sophisticated.”

A few years have passed since the conquering of the Mein, and Queen Corinn is firmly in control of the Known World—perhaps too firmly. With plans to expand her empire, she sends her brother, Daniel, on an exploratory mission to the Other Lands. There Daniel discovers a lush, exotic mainland ruled by an alliance of tribes that poses a grave danger to the stability of the Known World. Is Queen Corinn strong enough to face this new challenge? Fans of this bold, imaginative series will not be disappointed in the answer.

    " I finally forgave the author for killing off one of my favorite characters in the previous book. I thought his descriptions of the monsters were very thrilling, and his characterization of the royal family is very good. The villains weren't as believable or well motivated. I worry that the queen's magic book gives her too much power-- the ability to wish for whatever you want and get it always dooms a plot. "

    " Just couldn't muddle through anymore of it, the characters simply seem kinda' dull and the creatures and magic uninteresting and almost too simple or trying too hard. Just seems forced and feels like hard work to keep reading... "

    " An awesome tale of betrayal, and a fine continuation of the epic world created in Acacia. Some of the best fantasy I've read all year "
