dagger bannerThe battle between the shadow and the light continues. Trell finds himself at the heart of it, foundering in a dark abyss he doesn’t know he’ll ever be rid of. Though he’s made difficult choices, he’s done his best to live with them. He’s overcome a myriad of obstacles in the hopes of setting all wrongs to right.

So far, things have stabilized for him, though Trell knows that the battle is far from over. The darkness hovers on the horizon, looming ever closer with every step he takes. His past has been slowly catching up to him, giving him glimpses of what he should have known a long time ago. Someone has wanted him out of the way, though he could never understand why. Not until now.

Determined to hold on to what’s been given to him, Trell has promised to do everything possible to keep the enemy at bay. Though things have been difficult, there’s no way he’s going to let go of what’s been given to him. Most especially the beautiful Alyneri. She’s done her best to help him cope with who and what he is. The two of them have a purpose to fulfill, and he’s going to make sure everything comes to pass.

Many have tried to take Trell’s life and failed. He’s overcome adversity, only to find himself at the mercy of his enemies once more. A good many seek to silence him, once and for all, hoping to lend a hand to the impending darkness. Deep inside, he knows it must be banished. Though everything in life comes with a price, he soon realizes just how high is the one he must eventually pay.

Another wonderful addition to this series, The Dagger of Adendigaeth picks up where Cephrael’s Hand left off. Here we get to fully realize the battles occurring throughout the realm itself. I enjoyed seeing things unfold as Ean, Raine, Trell, and several others sought to assert themselves throughout the book itself. Each are immersed in adversities that take them far and wide as they seek the needed answers to the questions in their minds. Questions that seem to draw more questions the farther along within their quests they get.

While some of the loose ends from book one were closed, several new ones were left behind in this one. Though I’ve a feeling that book three will tidy them up when the time comes. I honestly can’t wait to see if Trell is finally able to find that freedom that seems to elude him. He’s finally come to know who and what he is, though the knowledge has come with a price. A good many are fighting to protect his livelihood while dying in the process. Perhaps he’ll get his happy ending soon enough despite the chaotic world in which he lives. So can’t wait to see what happens next!

About the book: Cephrael’s Hand

“All things are composed of patterns…” And within the pattern of the realm of Alorin, three strands must cross:

In Alorin…three hundred years after the genocidal Adept Wars, the realm is dying, and the blessed Adept race dies with it. One man holds the secret to reverting this decline: Bjorn van Gelderan, a dangerous and enigmatic man whose shocking betrayal three centuries past earned him a traitor’s brand. It is the Adept Vestal Raine D’Lacourte’s mission to learn what Bjorn knows in the hope of salvaging his race. But first he’ll have to find him…

In the kingdom of Dannym…the young Prince Ean val Lorian faces a tenuous future as the last living heir to the coveted Eagle Throne. When his blood-brother is slain during a failed assassination, Ean embarks on a desperate hunt for the man responsible. Yet his advisors have their own agendas, and his quest for vengeance leads him ever deeper into a sinuous plot masterminded by a mysterious and powerful man, the one they call First Lord…

In the Nadori desert…tormented by the missing pieces of his life, a soldier named Trell heads off to uncover the truth of his shadowed past. But when disaster places him in the debt of Wildlings sworn to the First Lord, Trell begins to suspect a deadlier, darker secret motivating them.

Get Cephrael’s Hand through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

About the book: “A Pattern of Shadow & Light Book 2

At long last, the reason for the blessed Adept race’s decline has been discovered: powerful beings known as Malorin’athgul are disrupting the Balance and preventing Alorin’s Adepts from awakening to their gifts. Who are they? Where are they? And how can they be stopped when they wield a power meant to unmake the universe itself?

In T’khendar…Prince Ean val Lorian has forsaken his companions in blood and battle to join the traitorous Fifth Vestal in T’khendar in the hopes of gaining some insight into the tragedies that plagued his Return. Now he must confront the man he’s long thought of as his enemy and discover the role he is meant to play in the First Lord’s darkly magnificent game.

The Vestal Raine D’Lacourte has followed his traitorous oath-brother Björn through six kingdoms and into the distant realm of T’khendar seeking explanation and atonement. But the condemned realm harbors shocking secrets, and Raine soon realizes he’s facing his greatest enemy yet—not in Björn, but in the truth.

Elsewhere in Alorin…the young truthreader, Tanis, faces a new villain in the fiery-eyed man he followed from the café in Rethynnea; the soldier Trell struggles to reconcile his growing feelings for the girl he rescued from the river against the guilt of his unknown past; and in Tambarré, another truthreader named Kjieran van Stone treads the incense-filled hallways of the Prophet Bethamin’s temple hoping to uncover a plot of treachery and betrayal before the Prophet demands his soul.

The time has come for each player to claim his role in the First Lord’s masterful game. All will be tested, but only time will tell how many can survive the dagger of Adendigaeth.
Get The Dagger of Adendigaeth through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
