Worse, following a failed rescue attempt, his beloved Elaira, his double, Fionn Areth, and the spellbinder Dakar are also trapped within Alestron's walls.

    Vision-extra info

    The Stormshadow packs ancestors are called the Star pack. We follow the Way Of The Wolf. It is our code. Here it is: 1: Pups must be twelve moons before they begin their training. 2: The pup is able to choose whether they want to be a fighter or hunter. If, later in their training, they lack the skill needed for the duty they chose, they will switch over to the other job. 3: Hunters may not fight, and fighters may not hunt. 4: Healers can have mates, as long as it doesn't interfere with their work. 5: If a beta dies or retires, a new one must be named before moonhigh.
    Stormshadows territory lay in the forest, with a mountain on the edge of it. We make our camp in a cave on the bottom of the mountain. Tunnels lead to all the dens. Our diet consists of deer, moose, and other such prey tht lives in the area. There are smaller snacks, such as rabbits or birds.~Vision

    You've got to read this series!

    Of all the superlatives I've used in reviewing these books, I have to say this one tops them all. The story comes to a thrilling pause on its way to the next Arc, which Janny says will be out in the Fall. "Initiate's Trial." I can hardly wait! Even though there is no cliff hanger here, the story must continue. I felt such sadness to come to the end (temporary, to be sure) of my time spent in the world of Athera. Sigh. You've got to read these books. In order, please.

    The pace quickens and a great story continues!

    Janny Wurts falls back into her genius with Stormed Fortress--now finally available in the US! Ms. Wurts is an author who writes with infinite skill so these books are never a quick read as in escapisms, but every word is important and she builds and shapes a world that has more depth than most. Importantly, in ending this arc, she picks up the pace once more, and you will be unlikely to be able to put it down.

    A wonderful tale all around but be sure to start with the first story in the series (Curse of the Mistwraith). If you don't, you'll miss out on much and not understand many of the intricacies occurring.
