Publisher's Summary

A few years have passed since the conquering of the Mein, and Queen Corinn is firmly in control of the Known World---perhaps too firmly. With plans to expand her empire, she sends her brother, Daniel, on an exploratory mission to the Other Lands. There Daniel discovers a lush, exotic mainland ruled by an alliance of tribes that poses a grave danger to the stability of the Known World. Is Queen Corinn strong enough to face this new challenge? Fans of this bold, imaginative series will not be disappointed in the answer.

The Origins

I enjoyed this as much as the first volume. The preface was excellent is summarizing the story to the point where part two begins. This book explained the origins for the conflicts to come in part three. These books are a great mixture of fantasy, fiction and morality.

Good series, poorly directed reading

I'm a fan of the Acacia trilogy but these audio books with Dick Hill reading them drives me nuts. While a great performer, Hill's reading style is inappropriate for the Durham's audience, his intonation, style, and sense of drama aimed more towards a child's ear than an adult. Much of the story is voiced with unnecessary exaggeration and he really overdoes it to a frustrating degree. Great story, poorly chosen reading approach.
