Rudi Mackenzie has traveled from the land where the sun sets to the land where it rises and back. He has found his weapon—the Sword crafted for him before he was born. He has made friends from among his enemies and found enemies where he expected friends. He has won the heart and hand of the woman he has loved his entire life.

Now Rudi is Artos, the High King of Montival, and his final destiny awaits him. He must face and defeat the forces of the Church Universal and Triumphant. Everything in the present, everything in the future, depends on the outcome of the conflict.

And like his father before him, Rudi knows that in winning the war he might well lose his life.

    " This was actually somewhat disappointing compared to the previous books in the series. The plot had no real focus and jumped around the timeline trying to hit on plot points that were happening currently in the timeline and filling back story with flashbacks. I very much liked all the previous books in this series but "Tears of the Sun" spends the whole book building up to a payoff that you won't get untill the next book. When I finished the last page it almost felt like it was a chore to have read it. "

    " More of the same. It's missing some of my favorite characters (Juniper and even Rudi/Artos figure in precious little of the story). The plot following Tiphaine was interesting but the black op in Boise was upsetting. oh so obviously setting up the next in the series. "

    " I was hoping that with this one, he would set things aright and get the lights turned back on... But alas, no. I am over it. It has turned into another medieval fantasy series and I never liked those one bit. "

    " Not impressed. Little plot advancement, it seemed like setup for he next book. "
