Publisher's Summary

The city of Peradain is the heart of an empire built with steel, spears, and a monopoly on magic...until in a single day it falls, overthrown by a swarm of supernatural creatures of incredible power and ferocity. Neither soldier nor spell caster can stand against them.
The empire's armies are crushed, its people scattered, its king and queen killed. Freed for the first time in generations, city-states scramble to seize neighboring territories and capture imperial spell casters. But as the creatures spread across the land, these formerly conquered peoples discover they are not prepared to face the enemy that destroyed an empire.
Can the last Peradaini prince, pursued by the beasts that killed his parents, cross battle-torn lands to retrieve a spell that might - just might - turn the battle against this new enemy?

Made me want to buy more credits

For the first time in two years, I am tempted to buy more credits just So I can get the next two books. I do not have the capacity to put into words how great the characters are, how intriguing the story is, nor how breathless I was left with the pace. When the book was done, I was left yelling, "ALREADY?!!!"

As for performance, Michael Kramer was the reason I purchased the book in the first place. The man could read a chemistry book and keep me entranced.

starts off strong but quickly looses focus

the story started off strong, but after the first 4 hours of the book quickly kept going downhill, and never recaptured my interest.

Michael Kramer was stellar as always
