On the world Ranadon there is no night as both suns shine brightly. The intervention of Belagren, High Priestess of the Shadowdancers, and the sacrifice of a child of royal blood, has banished the Age of Shadows from the skies. Belagren's position is unquestioned...until circumstances begin to tip political rivalries into a deadlier game altogether.
A volcanic eruption rocks the seas separating the Kingdom of Dhevyn and the mainland Kingdom of Senet, and a mysterious sailor is shipwrecked on the island of Elcast. Badly wounded, his arrival stirs up old hatreds and unravels old secrets. His presence is enough to even bring Antonov, the powerful Lion of Senet, to the island and fear to the Keep of the Duke of Elcast.
A strong friendship develops between Dirk, second son of the Duke, and Kirshov Latanya, second son of the Lion of Senet. But will they, and their friendship, survive the chain of events set in motion by the ambitions of the ruthless High Priestess of the Shadowdancers and the domineering Lion of Senet?
This first book of the Second Sons Trilogy establishes Jennifer Fallon as one of the most unique voices in fantasy fiction, as she creates full characters, and takes intelligent plotting to a whole new level in order to establish unparalleled complexity and tension.

Critic reviews

"A complex, epic adventure that leaves the reader entirely immersed in another world. There are many threads woven through the story, including a huge cast, but Fallon keeps them from tangling with deft plotting, strong world-building and stand-out lead characters." (Book Reviews)

Perseverance required..

I originally bought this title because I really enjoy Joe Jameson's narration, however, I didn't immediately form a rapport with the characters and considered returning - I am pleased I persevered! By the end, my interest in the destiny of the main characters has been peaked sufficiently enough to ensure that I purchase the second before too long. Had I read the book, I might not have finished it but Joe Jameson's marvellous performance skills spurred me on and I found myself ever more drawn in as the story unfolded.

So excited! One of my favorite fantasy writers

Would you consider the audio edition of Lion of Senet to be better than the print version?

Read the books and they were great and I am also loving listening!

What did you like best about this story?

This series is extremely intricate and the twists and turns all come together perfectly at the end.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Only stopped listening to sleep.

Any additional comments?

Excellent writer, excellent story!

Really enjoyed it

This book started out a little slow, it took me a while to get into it. But then, somewhere towards the middle, it picked up pace and I could hardly "put it down". There's no magic or dragons in this book, mostly characters and politics. But as someone who doesn't enjoy politics-driven plots, this book has a rather different approach to it. While the storyline is being driven by politics and events, you're taken onto this ride with the characters rather than with the plot. You feel their pain and frustrations, their friendships and their losses. Overall, the book is well written and compelling. Most of the characters feel round and believable.
As for the narration: Joe Jameson did an outstanding job with this. He is an amazing actor, and he has such a skill for storytelling, he really makes the story come to life. He's one of the best narrators I've listened to.
On to the second book in the series. ;)
