Terrible disappointment. After the first book constructed excellent premises for a really epic grimdark series... the second book does absolutely nothing with them. All the Shin training... for nothing. All the Kettral training... for nothing. All the life experiences of the 2 princes... for nothing. In here they are virtually different characters with the same names (and really really dumb ones at that) with a very weak story (not much of a story at all, actually). And the epic struggle expected since Kaden is suddenly Emperor? Not in this book...Will not continue the series (or the book, i gave up at 40% since it was really just wasting my time). ( )

This would be a terrific book if all the protagonists weren’t active imbeciles.
Ákaflega skemmtileg fantasía. Plottin eru margsnúin, systkinin þrjú sem takast á við framtíð þar sem faðir þeirra var myrtur og umkringd óvinum takast á við vandamálin hvert með sinni aðferð og fjarlægjast æ meir. Mörkin á milli óvina og vina verða æ óskýrari og söguþráðurinn kemur ávallt á óvart.
It's a great sequel to the first volume. Brilliant performance by Simon Vance! Can't wait for the third volume.

"The conspiracy to destroy the ruling family of the Annurian Empire is far from over. Having learned the identity of her father's assassin, Adare flees the Dawn Palace is search of allies to challenge the coup against her family. Few trust her, but when she is believed to be touched by Intarra, patron goddess of the empire, people rally to help her retake the capital city. As armies prepare to clash, the threat of invasion from barbarian hordes compels the rival forces to unite against their common enemy. Unknown to Adare, her brother Valyn, renegade member of the empire's most elite fighting force, has allied with the invading nomads. The terrible choices each of them has made may make war between them inevitable. Between Valyn and Adare is their brother Kaden, rightful heir to the Unhewn Throne, who has infiltrated the Annurian capital with the help of two strange companions. The knowledge they possess of the secret history that shapes these events could save Annur or destroy it"--
