Publisher's Summary

Winter has finally broken its hold over the Kingdom - but as the snows melt, trouble springs up in its place. A dark cloud hangs over Midlan: The army has retreated behind its high walls, not a word slips out from between its gates. And rumors swirl that the King has gone mad.
Kael knows nothing of this: His sights are on the plains. But with his horrible luck following him wherever he goes, it doesn’t take long for his plan to unravel. He finds himself trapped in Gilderick’s clutches and forced to work as a slave, laboring alongside the giants - who don’t exactly welcome him. In fact, he begins to suspect that some would rather see him dead. If Kael is going to have any chance to survive, he’ll have to come up with a new plan - and quickly.
Meanwhile, Kyleigh finds herself locked in a sprint across the desert. Time presses against her: There is a force gathered in Whitebone that threatens to undo everything, should it reach the plains. But her pride blinds her to the dangers, and it isn’t long before she and her companions are lost among the towering dunes. The strange magic of the sun drains their strength, misfortune nips at their heels, but they are determined to save their friends. And so they’ll brave the desert’s every peril - be it storms or cave trolls…or flesh-eating worms.

This series should never end!

Don't let the cover of the book hold you back. It did for me. I passed over it several times then finally took a chance on it. You'll fall in love with the characters as well as the adventure!

Very entertaining

Good story. I was interested to hear what would happen next and looked for reasons to listen, however it did slow down a bit in the middle, but stick with it as it does take up again. This story is not deep, so dont expect "Lord of the Rings", but enjoy it as light entertainment. I will be buying the next one.

Clumsy, but enjoyable

A reasonable story, very well read that will keep you going until the end. However, having made her two main characters too powerful, there were times where it felt like the author struggled to artificially limit them to preserve the tension, which often resulted in the characters forgetting to use powers they'd already shown earlier in the book, and which would have made light of the drama now unfolding. There were also times it seemed like you could feel the editors touch, leaving it seem a little clumsy.

File under romance

Felt like a mix of romance and fantasy. Not ideal. Personally I feel as though an epic fantasy story should be just that, epic. Leave the lovey-dovey stuff to the soft at heart.
