Overview

A new fantasy adventure featuring "the highly talented Dhulyn and Parno."(Locus).

Mercenary partners Dhulyn Wolfshead and Parno Lionsmane think they're escorting the Princess of Arderon to her wedding with the new Tarkin of Menoin, but the Mercenary Brotherhood has a secret mission for them: find out what happened to the two Brothers who were sent on assignment to Menoin a year ago-and vanished.

Once in Menoin, they discover that the Brothers' disappearance is linked to a series of killings. And when the Princess of Arderon's corpse is found mutilated in the same way as the others, Dhulyn and Parno track the killer into the Path of the Sun, an ancient labyrinth from which people sometimes never return...

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Elizabeth Norton
In the fourth novel of Malan's series, Dhulyn Wolfshead and Parno Lionsmane, partners in the Mercenary Brotherhood, are sent to Menoin to deliver Princess Cleona to her wedding. While in Menoin, they are also to investigate the disappearance of two of their Mercenary brethren who have not been heard from in more than a year. Shortly after they arrive in Menoin, the princess is murdered, her body left in a grisly tableau, and Dhulyn and Parno must walk the ancient Path of the Sun in search of both the killer and their missing brethren. This novel is extremely difficult to read without prior knowledge of the series. No background on the previous books is given, nor is the function of the Mercenary Brotherhood explained, although the reader comes to understand that as Mercenary Brothers, Dhulyn and Parno have severed all ties to their previous lives and become bonded with one another. The identity of the killer is revealed in the first chapter, which makes the end rather anticlimactic. The story ends as abruptly as it begins, leaving plenty of room for the next book. There is danger to be found on the Path of the Sun, but there is very little suspense. Readers looking for the next great epic fantasy series should look elsewhere. Reviewer: Elizabeth Norton
