Overview

The tale of the ælven's struggle against their kindred foes, the vampiric alben, continues...

Eliani and Turisan, mindspeakers separated by duty the day after their handfasting, yearn to be reunited as they aid in the fight to hold onto Fireshore. The capital city of that realm has been captured by the alben leader, Shalár, and along with it, Fireshore's governor and Eliani's beloved cousin!

Shalár now has her eye on Woodrun, the center of Fireshore's darkwood production. As Turisan races to bring an army to Woodrun's defense, Eliani must rescue the captives from Shalár's toils. Hiding from alben pursuers in the darkwood forest, she encounters a group of exiles, the Lost, who suffer the alben's curse of bloodthirst but strive to follow the ælven creed.

Are the Lost enemies or friends? Ælven or alben? The distinctions blur as the ælven approach a conflict that could destroy their hope of holding Fireshore.

"In fantasy, the tropes of vampires and elves have both been done to death, but Nagle makes both fresh and the characters, not their situations or their preferences for blood, carry the novel." -RT Book Reviews, on Heart of the Exiled

    This series gets better and better!

    The Aelven are under seige by their renegade kinsmen, the Alben. Shalar, the Alben leader, is on mission to take over Aelven lands and technology at any cost. AElven folk follow a creed that respects Khi, the life force of all creatures. Alben have succumbed to a condition called "the hunger". They must avoid the sun and feed on blood to live. The Alben exploit the subhuman Kobalen for food supplies and as mercenaries against the Aelven. Alben pervert the beliefs of the creed, taking Khi as a source of power from others and as torture to create submission.
    Eliani of Stonereach and Turisan of Greenglen are handfasted and share the rare ability to communicate thoughts at a distance. They are separated by necessity for the sake of saving their way of life. Another character, Rephanin, is with the army using his abilities to assist the General Ehranan to guide the army as one unit. Rephanin is atoning for misuse of his skills in the past and has a young protoge', Filari, who is recovering from a psychic attack by an Alben spy, Kelevon.
    This series gets more interesting with each book. This world is a complex one where characters have to negotiate relationships and loyalties which kept me turning the pages. Characters that were introduced in the earlier books The Betrayal and The Heart of the Exiled are brought forward to enrich the story line.
