Publisher's Summary

Rudi Mackenzie has won the battle that expelled the enemy from the new High Kingdom of Montival. Now he must free the people who live in the state once known as Idaho from occupation by the legions of the Church Universal and Triumphant and pursue them to their lair over the mountains. There he will finally confront the forces behind the Church - the Powers of the Void.
Yet even a victory will not end the conflict forever. The Powers of the Void are malevolent and infinitely patient, and the struggle is one that involves the entire world. They threaten Rudi not only in the present, but also in the future represented by his children, Orlaith and John. Rudi knows this.
And as his heir Princess Orlaith grows up in the shadow of her famous father, she also realizes that the enemy will do anything to see that she does not live to fulfill her parents' dream.

Wait for the last quarter.

For a book series going into double digits it's surprising how accessible this book is for new comings. For those of us coming to it as book 10 of the Emberverse there is something very predictable it about the direction of the story, don't expect any surprises in the first 3/4 but that doesn't distract from the great characters and world development wrapped inside the excellent writing.
The last quarter however is a different 'story', everything is taken to a new level opening the world up to interesting and unexpected direction, and it's worth the wait for both new comers and veterans of the series.
