Publisher's Summary

Argoth and Shim have only a short season before Mokad comes to annihilate them. If they're going to survive, they will need to raise an army of dreadmen and fell-maidens and train them in the lore.
Argoth sends out a call to Groves throughout the western lands and begins to train Talen, Sugar, and 30 others. But Mokad isn't waiting. Mokad has already sent an armada with armies from four glorydoms. It has also sent its Guardian - a terrifying Divine everyone thinks is a sleth ally, coming with an invitation from Argoth himself to join Shim's men.
Outnumbered and outmatched, humankind is about to lose its first chance in an age to fight against those who enslave them. Unless, of course, this new Grove can find a way to do what no other has ever done before.

No time for a breather

Those, like me, who nervously thought book 2 would take many chapters before an adrenaline rush would begin to take hold will be pleased to learn that there will be little time to rest before the pace picks up, as the true manifestation of the malevolent players of the dark arts begin to reveal themselves and display their cruel and bone-chilling methods of harvesting towns of souls almost with impunity. There is also ample an amount of intrigue and betrayal to sate the appetites of even the most fantasy-aware readers.

John D. Brown again create an amazing mixture of sadness, exhilaration, deep anguish threaded with thin strands of hope against impossible odds and constant fear of impending doom. Alex Wyndham excellent narration skills regulates the emotional rivers of the telling to always keep the listener ever hopeful but knowingly one misstep from ill-fate.

If you liked book 1, you'll be even more pleased with book 2.

It just keeps getting better!

Wow, what an incredible series! I would say that it easily compares to both "The Wheel of Time" and "The Stormlight Archive." If you liked either one of those you'll be right at home here. :D
