Jared Dunefaellan, Captain of the king's standing army, has managed to carve out a name for himself. After several victories, he is feared and respected, and is about to reclaim Wiekken's most prized city, Lleweyan. But he is running out of time; already his genetic disease is maturing, changing him into the hateful man his father became. Before he can win the war, however, he'll have to first conquer his addictions of alcoholism, sexual dysfunction and extremely distracting feelings for his best friend. In the meantime, Tarika is being forced to wed a tyrant, and Nathaniel reveals a shocking secret that throws their world into chaos. Everything comes to a head on a pirate ship of all things, and the prophecies surrounding Jared and Tarika play out in surprising, and occasionally disastrous, ways.

This is a review of the series. The first book was great. The second book disturbing. The third, I can't describe using four letter words but the jist is: messed up. If you don't like reading about multiple rapes do NOT read this book. First and foremost this a very DARK series that has every taboo subject covered, and WELL covered, repeated and in detail. Rape- Check (I can't even COUNT the number of rapes in this series, I just don't want to recall them all. But they cover every type of rape you can think of.) Child Molestation- Check Unbelievable parental betrayals of children- Check Homosexuality- Check Infidelity- Check Betrayal, murder-- check, check, check, check, check.... Seriously. It's actually very hard for me to rate this series because it was so incredibly dark. I have no idea how you can keep loving a monster after he has proven, time and time again to be a rabid animal in need of putting down. I was hoping someone would kill Jaryd 1/3 of the way through the book. It actually stained my feelings for Nathaniel and Tarika that they did not do this and kept forgiving him, and allowing him to run free. Then, the final straw for me was the vicious rape of an 18 year old girl. There's only so much I am willing to can believe an hero, even one as tarnished as Nathaniel or as plagued as Tarika, will put up with, even for the twisted love they bare Jaryd. And this event, is the one that finally pushed me beyond any credulity. If they had really loved Jaryd, they would have put him, and everyone else, out of his misery instead of making him, and us, live with it all. They were cowards that lost all my respect when they didn't. I had thought I had real dark fantasy before. I was wrong. I have no idea how many books it will take me to forget the nightmares this series has put in my head, but I do know that I need to start immediately on that. Unfortunately, I think I need brain bleach, and I don't see any around.
