Dreibrand Veta has killed for his country. At the frontlines of imperial expansion, he seeks to rebuild the fortune of his noble family. In his daring travels he encounters the rys, a race far more powerful than the human empire that bred him. Dreibrand cannot defy the rys Queen Onja nor defend his companion, Miranda, and her children from the wicked tyrant Queen.Desperate for help, Dreibrand and Miranda join Shan, a rys with emerging powers who plans to challenge Onja. In Shan’s pursuit of the rys throne, he exerts his magical powers, gathers his allies, and incites rebellion among Onja’s human subjects. Great wealth and power will reward the kings, warriors, and spies that align themselves with the rys pretender, but defeat could mean worse than death. Onja can imprison souls and her genocidal rage is legendary. Everything is at risk for Shan’s union of renegades.

"And the slavers are sorting the captives as we speak," Dreibrand concluded.

Kwan had listened to the figures and facts, enjoying the thoroughness.

"Excellent, Dreibrand. Everything is going well," Kwan said.

"And we are almost off the map, my Lord," Dreibrand said.

Kwan smiled because the Wilderness intrigued him as well. When he had conquered all the rich kingdoms outside Atrophane, his attention had turned to the mysterious lands beyond the known lands of Ektren. If he could take what belonged to any man, he could certainly take what belonged to no man.

"Soon the secrets of the Wilderness in the west will be known in Atrophane," Kwan predicted confidently. "And the maps will have to be remade."

"You have remade maps before, my Lord," Dreibrand said.

Kwan admired how Dreibrand always knew when to add an endearing comment.

"And what will you do with the rest of your day?" Kwan asked.

Average Rating of 4.5 from 2 reviews: *****

Standard medieval fantasy starting with an adventure-like beginning. Well written and well planned plot. It hooked me thoughout. I'm even willing to buy the sequel if not too expensive.

Kenny McDonald

The author managed to hook me with this tale. Well written plot with a nice depth to the main players. This story had all the essential ingredients with well described fight scenes and a nice romance to boot. The ruthless Queen and her evil allies were just nasty enough to keep you wishing for their demise. I was keen to read the next book in the series although disappointed that it was not available in the excellent manybooks collection. I will certainly be on the lookout for books two and three in the series.
