Anselm Adams is a confidant to his mother, a confessor to his stepfather, a caring brother to his sister. Things in his life seemed fairly normal with magic, until he discovers that his past and parentage aren't exactly what they seem.

With the Imperialist Order and their thugs taking over the capital city and their order targeting anyone who has magical abilities, Anselm is forced to flee his home.

Soon, he is going to have to make a choice: his life or his magic.

A suspense-filled, action-packed adventure. The characters are memorable, the plot is unique. Readers who have not read the first book in the series, however, will be lost reading this book. Those who like fantasy and have read THE EYES OF A KING, though, will enjoy reading VOICES IN THE DARK. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375838775, Hardcover)

Asking for the truth can be as painful as telling it. . . .

Anselm Andros has clearly defined roles in his family and they are roles he plays very well—he is confidante to his mother, Maria. He is the confessor to his stepfather, Leo, a man haunted by the secrets of his past. And Anselm is also the patient, caring brother to his precocious sister, Jasmine. When the political landscape of Malonia starts to shift, this unassuming family begins to unravel. Even though they’ve spent the past fifteen years leading a quiet life, Maria and Leo’s actions are forever linked to the turbulent history of Malonia and its parallel world, modern-day England. With so much uncertainty at home and in his world, it is more important than ever for Anselm to put all the pieces of the past together. He must listen to his own voice and acknowledge his fears and desires—whatever the cost.

Sixteen-year-old Anselm Andros's world is turned upside-down when he learns the identity of his birth father, and this personal upheaval mirrors that of his country, Malonia, which is on the brink of another war after fifteen years of relative peace.
