Publisher's Summary

Survival is just the beginning.
Blaine McFadden endured six long years in the brutal Velant prison colony, exiled for murder. War devastated his homeland of Donderath and destroyed the magic on which the Ascendant Kingdoms relied. Now Blaine and a small group of fellow exiles have returned to a lawless wasteland, where unrestrained magic storms wreak havoc and monsters roam free.
Yet, amidst the chaos, rumors persist of a new magic that could restore the kingdoms. But the key lies with a dangerous, ancient ritual and a group of vanished survivors. Now McFadden's only hope is a small, desperate, quickly rallied army. Together they must make one last stand knowing that if they fail, the civilization of the Ascendant Kingdoms dies with them.

Not as good as the first.

I actually enjoyed the first book, but this book seemed to just drag on. There were a few too many scenes that were just a little too obvious. Some things happen in the book that I was looking forward to, but they were very anti-climatic. Some of the main characters in this book also take a large step backwards. There is a good amount of whining from one and others make some really unbelievably stupid choices.

I actually wasted a credit on this!

The Headline is all you need. This book/series is terrible! Run away fast and far. The Character's get more exotic but no less weak and whiny. Then we get a romance forced on us. The vampires are still there, although outside of the two main ones they really aren't. The constant travel to supposedly randomly places where they find anything but random things. Everything falling perfectly into place without any struggle. Then forced struggles. Then...Ah. So bad!
