Overview

Lord of the Fire Lands (Tales of the King's Blades Series #2) by Dave Duncan

As unwanted, rebellious boys, they found refuge in Ironhall. . .Years later they emerged as the finest swordsmen in the realm—

The Kings Blades

Once bound, a Blade's life is no longer his own. Only death can break the gilded chain of enchantment that binds the bodyguard to the man he is sworn to defend. And never in living memory has a candidate refused the honor of serving his king. . .until now.

Young Wasp never intended to be a rebel. Yet, at the sacred ceremony of binding, he follows the lead of his friend Raider, and together they spurn the wishes of King Ambrose himself. Now Raider and Wasp are outlaws hunted by the very Blades whose ranks they were a breath away from entering, and joined together by a destiny that binds them more securely than any knot tradition and sorcery might tie. Amid the turmoil their "treachery" has inspired, Wasp and Raider must undertake a desperate journey into the heart of the dreaded Fire Lands. And the outcome of their terrifying confrontation with dark truth and darker magic in this realm of monsters, ghosts, and half-men will ultimately determine the fate of two kingdoms.

This book was an amazing novel. I couldn't get enough of it. I read for hours on end and I never wanted to put it down. I think anyone with interests in action, sorcery and mind-twisting events is very sure to love this book.

Definitely a recommended read! I was impressed that the other two books 'The Guilded Chain' and 'Sky of Swords' were the same story by another person's perspective. If you read this book...please read the other two. I lost many hours of sleep because I could not put it down. The story is of two young men who are about to enter the ranks of the kings men. Destiny binds these two men and they become outlaws. They ultimately determine the fate of the 2 kingdoms at war
