The death of Llauron has shook up more than just his dragon kin as the ancient wyrms know it impacts all species by leaving a void in protecting the earth. Dragons hold a rite of passage for Llauron and convene a meeting at the site of his horrific death to determine what to do. At about the same time, the F¿dor demons are resurfacing spreading their evil wherever they walk amongst humans. Talquist thinks the time is right for him to invade the northern lands so his realm can grow. Alliances are forming between the demons and the humans though neither side trusts the other especially once the conquest is complete. Rhapsody realizes her beloved Middle Kingdom people are in danger with the death of her dragon ¿father-in-law¿, from the demons and the southern armies. She and her spouse Ashe begin countermeasures as war is imminent by calling upon their allies of yore Grunthor and Achmed for help at a time her ¿mother-in-law' Anwyn the dragon wants her dead. --- THE ASSASSIN KING is a well written epic fantasy, but slower than the previous Symphony of Ages tales as much of the early pages recounts what has passed in other novels or the various sides preparing for war. The story line is character driven as the Anwyn, the F¿dor, Talquist, and Rhapsody know a confrontation is coming soon. Newcomers should obtain the previous tales (at least the last one - ELEGY FOR A LOST STAR), which is an interesting look at a fantasy war mostly from the preparation stages preceding the combat. Elizabeth Haydon is a master fantasist. --- Harriet Klausner

Great series, but unfinished. As of 2006, no information or anything about the next book is to be found anywhere. She dropped this series and moved onto a childrens series. As far as I'm concerned all her Symphony of Ages books should be pulled off the shelves. Its unfair to her readers. I would have never spent the money knowing it wouldn't be finished. I don't recommend any of these books.

    Nothing Happened

    As another reader reported, I should have waited for the paperback. Nothing but talk, nothing settled, just set us up to buy the next book. Mitch Goldman Chicago

    Wait for paper back

    I wasn't as impressed w/ this one as others. She seemed to change her writing style until that last 100 pages or so which I didn't like. Need to read it to find out what happened though. Love the series, just not so much this book
