Summary

The story of the first Illeniel wizard continues.
Tyrion's life among the She'Har had become quiet, but the sins of his youth have returned to haunt him. The Mordan wardens have discovered one of his children, and the other groves are racing to find and claim the rest of his illegitimate offspring. Unable to stand by and watch as his children are used as pawns against one another, Tyrion makes a hard choice, one that will set him against everyone and everything he cares for. Others' love made his children strong, but his hate will make them powerful.

Even better than the first?

I put off getting this book for a while because of some reviews I read and worried it would fall into the poor sequel trap. It doesn’t. Things just get even more interesting and dark at times.
Listened to it all in 3 days and I will be getting the third.
Well worth a listen.

Manning Stokes The Fires!

Now we're really starting to see in greater depth just why Manning felt the need to warn that this series was indeed a dark story in so many ways. Tyrion's twin ascent to power and descent towards madness continues but now there is much more at stake as he draws in other innocents. He writes some particularly powerful scenes at times and despite Tyrion's undoubted willingness to embrace what can fairly be described as unspeakable acts the humanity in him within his predicament shines through in both its darkest and lightest forms.

This is an excellent tale of what happens when a relative innocent has the harshest of choices thrust upon him and it is handled masterfully. The juxtaposition of seeming alien indifference with tortured humanity make for a great intensity. Alex Wyndham delivers it like a thoroughbred and I'm going straight on to the next book. There's no better sign of a good series than when you want to do that!

dark, tragic, but very good.

the story is full of conflict start to finish and can be a serious jumble of feelings. one criticism would be that the dialog is rather abrupt leaving out much of the natural flow you see in thought and speech as though facts are being presented without the experience. good action with detailed imagery in a good way.
