Publisher's Summary

Legendary for their bloodlust, sorcery, and fierce, dark beauty, the Fey have swept across three continents and never face defeat. But now, in defiance of their Black King, the warrior-prince Rugar and his fearless daughter, Jewel, have marshaled an invasion farce to meet its ultimate challenge: Blue Isle, glistening beyond impregnable rocks and raging waters.
A people of simplicity and faith, untainted by intrigue, enchantment, or war, the Blue Islanders have never before been invaded. But their young prince, Nicholas, dreams of battle and will rally his countrymen against the onslaught of the Fey, even as the Islanders discover a deadly, undreamed-of power of their own. So begins a conflict that must ultimately destroy one race or the other - or both.

Bizarre but intriguing

At first I found this book so strange that I had a hard time getting into it, and even trying to figure out what it's all about. The writer has an interesting way of presenting the story by showing both sides of a conflict (war) from the perspective of all the characters (3rd person omniscient), so that the reader begans to care for and appreciate both sides of the conflict. Finally, you get so caught up in the characters that you're definitely guessing as to what they could possibly come up with next and it's difficult to take sides.... It wasn't so good that I want to immediately purchase the next book and start reading it today, but,I will, eventually, get around to reading the rest of the series.

Enhanced by great narration

I tried to read this book in paper a few years ago but didn't get very far. But when Audible offered the audio version, I thought I'd try again. I like it better now, thanks in large part to Mr. DeSantos' EXCELLENT narration.

Now I have to see if I can afford more volumes in the series. o_O
