Magery is failing, the war has been lost and Hightspall has fallen. The Cythonian enemy, led by their reincarnated sorcerer-king, Lyf, are determined to wipe it off the map and build their ancient realm of Cythe anew. Rix, now known as Deadhand, was once heir to the greatest fortune in all Hightspall. Now he’s disgraced, dispossessed and is running for his life.
Tali, an escaped slave, is held captive. But when she discovers that her enslaved people face genocide at the hands of the enemy, Tali conceives a desperate, impossible plan. But before she can hope to save her people, Tali has to confront her own darkest fear - a return to slavery.

Great continuance of the first book.

This story plods and makes small revelations in a contrived way. The action is slow and the convenient memory laps are just irritating. If I can remember something from 2 days ago at my age then a young character should be able to remember something pivotal. The small revelations seem to be let out when the plot runs even slower with something that should have been known earlier. It just drags. I've listened to hundreds of audible books but this series is torture.
Pronounce words correctly. Sloughed is slowed. Lately is lattely. More. Otherwise narrator is okay.
The premise of this series is great but the execution should have been better.
