Good. But I was bummed that this doesn't seem to be a trilogy... it doesn't end with this one, and there isn't a 4th book available in the US yet!

First, the guy looks totally scary, fear not though, he is not a zombie. I guess he is meant to be Fyn, the prince destined to become a monk because of his magic.This book picks up where the last ended. Piro is on her way to Merofynia as a slave and she will serve princess Isolt. While her capturer expects her to be a spy for him. Byren has a camp filled with women, children, and some soldiers. He is trying to figure out how he can win his country back from his cousin, and kick out all the Merofynians. All while the young Fyn has been shanghaied and is now a sea hound. They all want to restore the throne.I liked Piro's adventure, because later she meets this young mage, and I do like when I suddenly gets hopes up for possible romance. Byren's tale was war, as before, he is the fighter, the brave one and the one destined to be king. While Fyn really stepped up in this one, he showed he is courageous and noble, and he falls in love, sort of.There were also some new faces, the young mage Tyro, princess Isolt, and then the evil Palatyne who wants to rule the world, and marry the young pretty Isolt. He does not care who he kills on hsi way to his throne. He feels like a very believable bad guy. Greedy for power.The only negative part is the end. Oh it's a very happy fulfilling ending, but at the at same time it's open, and some major conflicts are left, especially in the romantic department. I want more, I need more, I must ask Daniells.This is still a good end to a fantasy series that kept me enthralled and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The political plots, the hidden agendas, the magic, it all makes this an interesting tale of good, bad, and all that lies in between.

As much as I loved the previous two books, this one left me wanting. Too much fretting over romantic interests that didn't seem to go anywhere. No further mention of Byren's Affinity gifts nor explanation of his connection with the ulfrs. The story itself seemed rather rushed to the end, with a good deal left unsaid. I certainly hope there are more books set in this world so the story may continue!

Was very hard to put down, once you start you had to finish.

This is simply one of the worst fantasies I have read in 20 years. I bought them as a trilogy while I went on a long trip. It was all I had to read. I never would have bought the second two if I read the first one first. They are all awful. The characters are thin, weak, and pathetic. The plot line is worse. Everyone feels guilty for everything, the jumps from place to place are impossible, and after three volumes, there is NO satisfying ending. What a complete waste.

This series is not one of the best written that I have ever read however it does keep the action going and the characters are fun. I really wish that this book had ended the series however. There were a lot of twists and turns that were interesting but could have been left out to move the plot along a little faster. There was also a lot of reminiscing about past events that dragged it down and most of it was about things that didn't get resolved in this book anyway. Still, I will probably get the next book too.
