Three months have past since King Martris "Tris" Drayke defeated his brother, Jared the Usurper, and his ally Blood Mage Arontala (see THE BLOOD KING). Winning a war seems easy to Tris in retrospect. Now he must move on and rule a devastated kingdom. Apprehension remains high as some forces loyal to the Usurper continue to fight with enemy Lord Curane and his troops trapped at Lochlanimar and rumors spread that to the south a child has a legitimate claim to the throne. With all that Tris must find a way to feed and shelter his displaced refugee population especially with winter coming to freeze the lands to the north. Meanwhile Tris also prepares for his wedding ceremony with Princess Kiara. He appoints his protector best friend Jonmarc Vahanian to take over as Lord of Dark Haven, a key estate to the north. Finally as the lord of their realm Margolan, Jonmarc negotiates with the Blood Council of vampires the Vayash Moru at a time when some of the vampires believe the mortals are unworthy of ruling especially since the Flow of magic The Flow is unbalanced, which means the blood magic of vampires is stronger than the light magic of the SUMMONER. This is a super third tale that fans of the Necromancer fantasy saga will enjoy. Tris and Jonmarc learn how complex it is to change from rebel to ruler as they struggle to insure the kingdom's subjects don't starve to death or are further victims of war. Although well written, DARK HAVEN is a middle book that sets up the next entry as no major plot line is completed. Still exciting and well written, Gail Z. Martin provides a deep tale that makes the case that John Milton's "Better to rule in Hell than to serve in Heaven" omits how much more difficult to rule is than to serve. Harriet Klausner

It's September 4, 2010. I found the first installment in this series about a month ago, purchased it in "e-book" format for my Nook, and found it to be a very good read. It was so good in fact, that when I finished it, I searched for the next "e-book" in the series. There were 2 more "e-books", and I purchased both of them immediately. I did not realize that the series continued beyond the 3 "e-books" until after completing "Dark Haven." I searched for books by Gail Z Martin, hoping to find out when the next in the series would be available, and discovered that a 4th "book" existed in the series, but not in "e-book" format. Happy? NO! I entirely agree with another reviwer, if Barnes & Noble is going to care the first 3 in the series in "e-book" formats, then the 4th book should be available that way also. I am disappointed, and upset that I can not read the next part of the series, even though it was release back in December of 2009 (9 months ago). Almost makes me want to go back to purchasing hard cover books, from "Amazon."

I guess I won't know if I like the book or not. Since I can't get all of it on my Nook I will have none of it.

Seems to me that if you are going to provide the first three books of a series in ebook format, you would include book #4 in ebook format. I am not interested in purchasing the paperback, ergo the Nook. Come on B & N, either carry the entire series or don't carry any of the series. Seems like simple logic to me.

I really liked this book because I finally saw vampires in a different light. I empathized with the vampires and saw them as real people and not in the typical stereotype of them being hunted down.

I found the first book while randomly stopping at my local Barnes and Noble. Generally I try to find one-shot stories or stories in their genesis. I wasn't sure how many were out but the plot line drew my interest. Although it was a bit different from what I expected, it more than met up to my expectations of a good novel. Diverse characters and relationships, both subtle and and elegant magic, epic battles, the series covers everything I look for in a story. When I finished it, I looked up the author and found out that she had the sequel out already. I not only bought the second book, I also pre-ordered this one. I definitely look forward to more by Martin.

This trilogy was a marvelous read -- I really enjoyed the characters and stories. The only drawback I saw was an error in the editing of 3rd volume (Dark Haven) where a space after the word "moru" had been deleted throughout the book. It was a bit jarring at first but the story writing more than made up for that. I will definitely keep an eye out for more of Ms. Martin's books.
