Publisher's Summary

The sequel to the award-nominated Heir to the North is here, and the story of Malessar's Curse is complete!
"With the publication of The High King's Vengeance, readers who have yet to begin the series have the whole thing available to them now, and can read straight through from the beginning. I envy them the experience." - Teresa Edgerton, author of Goblin Moon and Hobgoblin Night
"I am the Heir to the North."
Malessar's Curse is broken, the wards around Caenthell destroyed. The Warlock himself lies, exhausted and gravely wounded, in the rubble of his own house. And while the dire spirits trapped behind the wards for centuries are unleashed into the world once more, Cassia is confined to a cell deep in Galliarca's grand palace.
Yet Caenthell calls to her, and Cassia must answer. As Heir to the North, the throne and the power behind it belong to her. But the twisted hunger of Caenthell's spirits appalls her. and Cassia vows to do everything she can to defeat them.
Now, Cassia must convince both Galliarca and Hellea that they have to stand against the resurrected High King of Caenthell. She must raise an army from nothing, make uncertain alliances with princes and dragons, and fight her way into the heart of the North. And, if she is lucky, someone may live to tell her tale.
"Fear me."

I'm glad I stuck with it

Having read the first book, which I thought was ok but not great, I hadn't planned to read part two, but as I had a free copy and the weather has been poor, I settled down to listen. I'm really glad I did.

As many of the main characters had already been introduced, there was little scene setting to be done so the action was launched straight into without any ado and the pace kept going to the end.

Cassia continued to grow into her unexpected role as the heir of the north, changing from a young storytellers daughter, to a fearless warrior woman with a clear insight into what she must do to achieve her goal. As she did so, Cassia stayed true to her morals and values and was not afraid to speak her mind to...well, men, who all too often dreamed of power & glory and thought to align themselves with Cassia to achieve their own, less honourable aims.

This is a well crafted story, told in a style that keeps the listener involved and wondering where it will all end. The narrator is superb. The majority of the book's characters are male, the narrator skilfully portrays their range of ages, accents etc very impressively and lends the book the tension it deserves. This is what keeps one listening long after lights out.
