An excellent third part of the Book of the Order series. Well written, action packed, and unpredictable. The story line is clever and original. The characters are well-developed and engaging.

The book starts off a bit slow with Sorcha still in a coma of sorts from a disastrous encounter with a geist lord in Spectyr. She is whisked away and separated from Merrick. Read is also on his own, searching for his sister Fran, with just the Rossin for a companion. The whispers of the bond are stretched as each member is thrust into situations which will test them to the limits.

The story moves quickly and is full of mystery and excitement. The Order faces devastation far beyond anything the Deacons have seen in their life time. Many characters from earlier in the series reappear and add key components to the complex puzzle that the story builds. The book concludes with a cliff hanger that leaves the reader eager for resolutions in the in-development Harbinger (coming in 2013).

It was a great story, but was more many chapters in an even bigger story. It could not stand alone without the other books and I wish more had been resolved at the end of this one. For anyone who enjoys the Book of the Order series, Wrayth is a must-read for further depth and development of Sorcha, Merrick, and Raed and their incredibly crafted world. ( )
