This is the middle of the trilogy, which usually indicates the worst of the three. However, Patricia Bray has escaped that designation with this book as she has taken us from Kingsholm, the center of the kingdom of Jorsk, to the conquered lands of Duncaer, Devlin's homeland. Here we glimpse more of his history and character, and while the "enemies" here are a bit too nebulous for my taste, this rich character background more than make up for it - and give a second book, with its notorious bad lu...more

Okay....well I'm sorry to do that ^ the three (3) stars that is. I really liked the first book in this series and snapped this one up as soon as I'd finished it. This one while not bad and I'd call it "pretty good" didn't quite strike me the same.

Devlin of Duncaer is the Chosen One, champion of the Kingdom of Jorsk. He is coming to terms with his job and his loss of part of his hand. Rumour about a missing sword, the Sword of Light, a sword that Devlin realises that he actually knows. This means that he has to return to his home place, an occupied land. where he is now considered a collaborator and possibly a traitor. He's also starting to feel like the gods are playing with him and he's losing his mind.

I really like it, yes it's a bridg...more
