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

    a super fantasy

    Path of the Sun
    Violette Malan
    Daw, Sep 7 2010, $15.00
    ISBN 9780756406387

    The Mercenary Brotherhood in Lesonika inform Brothers Dhulyn Wolfshead and Parno Lionsmane that they no longer stand accused of murdering the heir to the throne of Tegrian, as the Prince has been found alive though his sister sits on the throne. The Mercenary Brotherhood assigns the exonerated pair to escort the Arderon Princess Cleona to her wedding to the Tarkin of Menoin; which means another ocean voyage for Dhulyn and Parno as the destination is an island. However, their Guild also directs the duet to investigate the disappearance of two members who traveled last year to Menoin, but have not been heard from since.

    They arrive with their charge in Menoin where Dhulyn and Parno hear rumors of ritual mutilations. When the Princess is found murdered, an apparent victim of the ritual killers, the latest victim's two former escorts follow clues that lead them into the unknown deadly Path of the Sun labyrinth.

    The fourth adventures of Dhulyn Wolfshead and Parno Lionsmane (see The Storm Watch, The Sleeping God and The Soldier King) is a super fantasy that fans of the sword and sorcery saga will relish. The accusation arch from the previous tales is nicely ended with a whimper rather than a bang while Dhulyn sums up their latest inquiry with her musing that she prefers a horse after several recent water logged escapades. Fast-paced throughout, readers will enjoy traveling with the lead pair as they enter a labyrinth in which few get out alive.
