Overview

Return to the world of the Renshai with a new generation of warriors.

Eighteen years after her last Renshai novel, Mickey Zucker returns to her beloved fantasy universe.

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

Slashing swordplay, a telepathic cat, spirit-sucking spiders, dizzying genealogical complications, and three warrior brothers all lend depth and sparkle to Reichert's latest installment of her immense Renshai Chronicles saga. The hardworking, talented, and resourceful male and female warrior Renshai, now serving the royals of Béarn, never start wars but always finish them. Loosely based on Scandinavian myth, the Renshai's complex struggle against their old Northmen enemies is personalized in Renshai warrior Kevral Tainharsdatter's three adolescent sons, Saviar, Subikahn, and Calistin. Each brother battles internal and external demons to prove himself a man, while hordes of mysterious pirates serving malignant godlike giants join in opposition. Reichert's handsomely fleshed-out fictional world and animated characters make her latest book an entertaining and philosophical journey with glimmers of sorcery from mages and elves that foreshadow further Renshai adventures.

King Griff of Bearn has no time to mourn the loss of his son Prince Arturo from a pirate assault as the menace on the Southern Sea has gown out of control. Likewise the Renshai who lost loved ones protecting the prince have no time to grieve as they are under assault too. The Northmen have persuaded many in Erthyame that the Renshai stole their land from them. Pressure mounts on King Griff to make reparations starting with exiling the Renshai from the Westlands to the Eastlands at a time he needs their warrior skills to complement his Erthyane Knights. As the Northmen mounts attacks abetted by the organized pirates and Giants on the retreating Renshai, the sons of heroic Kevral Tainharsdatter try to bring leadership to the trek, but Saviar and Calistin Ra-khirsson and Subikahn Taesson have personal demons and issues to overcome as well. This opening act of another Renshai chronicle is a terrific entry into the wonderful swashbuckling fantasy world of Mickey Zucker Reichert. The story line occurs about two decades after the last trilogy (see The Children of the Wrath)) ends and starst the next generation of heroes. Readers of the saga will fully relish the return to the Westlands and beyond as this is a fresh beginning to the third saga yet it contains all the sword and fantasy play fans expect.

** spoiler alert ** I was so excited when I saw this was coming out. I loved the Renshai Chronicles. I must have read them a hundred times now. I'm totally in love with Saviar, Subikhan, and Calistan! Although I'm very upset about how Kevral was killed off as a kind of side note! She was my favorite character!!! I named my newest Build-a-Bear after her though, although she probably wouldn't be very happy about pink teddy-bear being named Kevralyn...anyhoo, I hope there's going to be more to this newest additi...more I was so excited when I saw this was coming out.

I named my newest Build-a-Bear after her though, although she probably wouldn't be very happy about pink teddy-bear being named Kevralyn...anyhoo, I hope there's going to be more to this newest addition (it kinda seemed like there would), I really want to see more of the new characters, and the older ones too! I always loved that these books had family, most fantasy doesn't really go there (I don't think), the whole pregnancies, moms and dads and that, (not sure if I explained that right), but I liked it. Also, I appreciate the Scandinavian flavor, being of that heritage myself. Aaah, now I want to go back and start at the begining again!!! Come out with more soon please!!
