Publisher's Summary

The White Tree (book one): In Mallon, the dark magic of the nether has been banned for centuries. Its users have been driven out or killed. Its secrets lost.
But the holy book of the nethermancers has just been found by a boy named Dante.
As he works to unlock the book's power, he's attacked in the street. The nethermancers aren't gone—and they want their book back. Caught between death cultists and the law, Dante fights for his life, aided by his growing skills and a brash bodyguard named Blays. Together they're drawn into a centuries-old conflict that brings Mallon to the brink of civil war.
Surviving won't be easy. But if they make it out alive, they'll step down the path to becoming two of the greatest warriors the world has ever known.
The Great Rift (book two): Dante and Blays have averted war against their new home of Narashtovik. But they didn't do so alone. It's time to repay their debts.
The norren who helped them remain enslaved by the Gaskan Empire. While arming the norren clans for rebellion, Dante hears one of them is in possession of the legendary Quivering Bow. If he can track down the weapon, it could secure norren independence.
But the wheels of war have already begun to turn. As Gask moves to crush the rebellion, Dante and Blays find themselves at the head of a campaign for survival—for norren and Narashtovik alike.
The Black Star (book three): Narashtovik has been saved—but Dante and Blays' friendship has been destroyed.
Blaming the Gaskan king for the loss of his love, Lira, Blays infiltrates the enemy nobility. There he schemes to bankrupt Gask and drive its ruler from the throne. But Dante's been waiting for Blays' return. If he finds and exposes him, Blays will be executed as a spy.
As they squabble, strange lights shine in the east. Harbingers of a long-forgotten threat. If the signs go ignored, Narashtovik will be annihilated by an enemy it never knew it had.

An amazing audio experience

This is a hidden gem. I'd never heard of this author before I saw this pop up in the new releases. I however love the narrator and the premise sounded great. It blew me away! Snappy witty dialogue, deep character development, interesting world and magic system. Very satisfying conclusion and with a new Trilogy in the works. Enjoy the ride and don't rush this experience.

Worst Epic Fantasy of 2015

I pre-ordered this book at once after reading the Publisher's Summary, AND because the books were very long. I like long epic books. Anyway, understanding that this is a dark series, from the Publisher's Summary, I felt prepared for this series, and the First Book met my expectations for the first quarter, or half of the book, at which point I found out that I really didn't like protagonist. He's not the "bad guy you have to love" kind of guy, he's just a jerk, plane and simple.Then he meets his Body Guard and it becames a battle about who could be the biggest jerk. Towards the end of the Book One you find out that there is a Prophecy to fulfill, and it's one that sounded like it would be an interesting path for the story to go. Book Two is just one long sarcastic conversation amongst all of the characters. Not much more to add there and not much about the Prophecy either. In Book Three the protagonist is somewhat repentant, but he's still isn't likeable, and the other characters are still having their long sarcastic conversation. When I finished Book Three I kept thinking what happened to the Prophecy ?!?!? There was supposed to be a Prophecy to fulfill, but there wasn't. What's the author thinking? The magic system was kind of interesting, as far as blood magic. However, by the end of these books the guy has cut himself so much that his arms are one big scar, and that's just gross. These books are just bad. Don't bother with this series, it isn't worth a credit, AND you're certainly not going to miss out on anything.
