    Exciting fantasy

    Lord of the Shadows Jennifer Fallon Bantam, June 2004, $6.99, 575 pp. ISBN 055358670X During the Age of Shadows when one of the suns began a generation long eclipse, the High Priestess of the Shadowdancers uses her knowledge of when the Age of Light will return to gain power. Over the next few decades the Lion of Senet and the High Priestess pursue ruling the world so that everyone worships the one true religion. The country of Dhevyn is essentially a satellite of Senet with the Lion of Senet¿s second son as regent and his queen is the daughter of the monarch pushed aside...................................... Dirk Provin has betrayed everyone he cares about to get close to the Lion of Senet and eventually becomes Lord of the Shadows and Lord of the Sun. He is an expert Machiavellian manipulator who has the populace so frightened that they call him The Butcher. Little anyone knows that Dirk is working from within in the church to destroy the people¿s faith in the Shadowdancers. He did not expect that his plots within plots would have brother fighting brother in a civil war that could tear Senet in two............................... This is the last exhilarating book in the exciting Second Sons Trilogy (see THE LION OF SENET and EYE OF THE LABYRINTH). Readers are privileged to watch a nineteen year old manipulate a man more than twice his age. The protagonist is ruthless because he can¿t see any other way of freeing the kingdom of Dhevyn or do away with the evil cult of the Shadowdancers who use their religion to commit heinous acts. Jennifer Fallon provides an electrifying tale that will have her growing readership thirsting for her next novel............................ Harriet Klausner

    Fabulous read!

    Love, love, loved this trilogy! Onto The Tide Lords Quartet now. Jennifer Fallon is very high on my list of favourite authors, alongside Robin Hobb.

    I Also Recommend:

    Lord of the Shadows

    In "Lord of the Shadows," Love will bloom in the most unexpected places, new alliances will be forged and secrets will come to light. There will be a war that will pit one brother against another and many will suffer the price. Once you finish reading this book and realize that you've come to the end of the trilogy, it will feel like losing a friend.
