Description

Half a millennium ago, in a desperate attempt to defeat the Ithonian Empire, Kanderon Crux and her allies banished the city of Imperial Ithos from the world of Anastis.

Her dread weapon, the Exile Splinter, even erased the memory of its location from the universe. Now it's returning and bringing the Exile Splinter back with it.

The great powers of the continent are desperately hunting for the site of the lost city, knowledge lost even to Kanderon herself. None know what ancient Ithonian weapons and enchantments might still be found in the ruins, but the Exile Splinter alone would be a prize to justify war.

Hugh and his friends find themselves dragged along on the search, where they'll face enemy warlocks, sea monsters, liches, unnatural storms, and even a man-eating tiger. However, there's something they're not being told about the lost city...something that has even Kanderon and the other great powers terrified.

Includes Murder at Ras Andis, a bonus novella from the Mage Errant series, and a special note from the author.

Just Keeps Getting Better

I have thoroughly enjoyed all three previous books in this series and enjoyed this one even more. It has everything I most enjoy in this series with plenty of action, character and world building, and magical theory. The action occurs primarily in the first fourth and last third of the book with lots of character backstory, relationship building, magical lectures, and exploration of both the geographic and natural world around the continent of Ithos in the middle. The story moves forward quite rapidly from its setup in A Traitor in Skyhold, and what will happen next promises to be even more of a wild ride. Small quibble... I love Ralph Lister's narration, but his voice for Alustin this time was rather subdued instead of the eccentric amiability we have come to expect. This may be due to one line in the text, or maybe the narrator took his cue on Alustin's voice from the last conversation he had in the previous book... an atypically subdued Alustin there. Anyway, I love all these character voices and Ralph Lister's overall performance so it really is a small quibble. And maybe Alustin's energy level will pick back up by book 5, The Siege of Skyhold. There is bonus material of a fun short story that expands our knowledge of the continent even further and shows us more of the irascible Alinia. There's also a word from the actual author talking about tigers, so don't stop too soon! Spoiler Warning: Hugh's spellbook is its usual funny self and acquires a suggested nickname at one point... imo, the stupidest nickname possible! If that name sticks and is shortened, Hugh will have the continent's first Makbook... no, just no!
