Publisher's Summary

Sent on an impossible mission by Kingfountain's ruler into the heart of the enemy's capital as two mighty kingdoms prepare for war, Ankarette Tryneowy must divine the location of a magical sword, perhaps their key to victory. What she finds is the truth - one she could never have foreseen.
Searching for Firebos, the sword of ancient kings, is no simple task. It disappeared after one of the most powerful Fountain-blessed figures, the Maid of Donremy, used it in battle, and no one - except perhaps the Maid's dearest friend, the Duke of La Marche - knows its whereabouts. But when Ankarette finds the aging duke in his prison cell and hears the mystery he unveils, her mission becomes more perilous than she could have possibly imagined.

Exceeded my expectations

I am quickly falling in love with the way that Jeff Wheeler writes. The plot and characters are carefully orchestrated and interwoven. Even the language, his word choice, amazes me. The Maid's war tells the story of how the Maid of Donremy plays a vital role in the events that unfold in the Kingfountain series. While it happens before Owen Kiskadden was born, it might just be better to read it after the rest of the Kingfountain books. There were times that I listened in awe as the pieces of this puzzle fell into place, and even got goose bumps as things unfolded.

I must also admit that Kate Rudd is becoming my favorite narrator. Her brilliant story-telling teams with Wheeler's writing to create a masterpiece. This series is definitely one of my favorites.

Tying All Together

I am happy that I read this book in the order that the author suggested. Jeff Wheeler brought together the history of the previous books. While I was reading (listening via Audible) last night, I was so sadden by the death of the main character, but like all his books, I could not put any of them down as the story was pulling no me farther into the web of Jeff’s imagination. Thank You Amazon for introducing me to this fantastic Author.

First last

I read this book last because I didn't know it was there. It explains lots and in some ways I am glad I read it last. Love the series, enjoyed all of it. Just awaiting the latest book. Brilliant.
