Publisher's Summary

Having lost the prince to the madness of The Blessing, Tejohn and Cazia are the only people who know of his plan to retrieve a secret spell that might - just might - turn the tide of battle against the grunts.
But Tejohn's body is broken, and Cazia has been stripped of her magic. Worse, both are being held captive: Tejohn faces charges of treason in the lands where he was born. On the other side of the continent, Cazia is a prisoner of the Tilkilit queen, a creature with a desperate, deadly plan.
While they struggle for their freedom, The Blessing continues to spread across Kal-Maddum, their numbers growing more numerous as the human population shrinks. What had started as a race to restore an empire has quickly become a mission to save humanity from extinction.
Harry Connolly's first book, Child of Fire, was listed in Publishers Weekly's Best 100 Books of 2009.

Great reading, great plot, great characters!

Any additional comments?

This is the second book of The Great Way trilogy. If you haven't read book 1, The Way into Chaos, read/listen to it first. That said, this is a great middle book for the series, the characters change and grow, you learn new things about the world and plenty of unexpected things happen, the plot is really full of surprises. The performance is top notch, Kramer gets every nuance of the text and gives a strikingly individual voice to each character. This is a lively and interesting book, I highly recommend it!

Obviously one book split into three

This is not a story in itself. It is the middle of a book. Poor splitting on the publisher, i assume.
