Summary

From best-selling author Danielle L. Jensen comes a thrilling new novel in the Dark Shores world, a series that Sarah J. Maas called "everything I look for in a fantasy novel".

Their battles ended in victory....

Lydia returns to Mudaire to enter training at the healing temple. But instead of fighting to save lives, she’s convinced she is doing more harm than good. She delves into the history of the gods only to discover a truth that will change her life forever.

His birthright as commander of the Royal Army is finally in his grasp, but Killian feels anything but victorious. Burdened by his past, he embraces the darker side of his mark - and in doing so, risks starting a war.

But the war has only just begun....

Having defeated the tyrant Urcon, Marcus struggles to form a lasting alliance with the Arinoquians. But he is plagued by the knowledge that there is a traitor among his friends, and it could cost him everything that he’s fought for.

Torn between her growing allegiance to the 37th legion and her need to liberate her people, Teriana finds herself mired in a web of secrets. She embarks upon a path that will either save everyone she loves - or put them all in their graves.

Listeners may listen to either Dark Shores or Dark Skies first!

Great story!

For such a long listen, I cried out NO when it finished. No, as the final book isn’t released until October. Great story, you get so invested in the characters, willing them on and feeling like you want to cry with them. I am far from being a teen and would highly recommend this series. Didn’t think a Roman Empire story would be of interest. The two narrators are excellent.

The best series

Be still my beating heart!!

I cannot get over how good this series is. The last one I enjoyed as much as this was Sarah J Maas’s Throne of glass… and I think I liked this more. So clever, so well written, fantastic world building and loveable characters full of depth. I feel emotionally attached to all and that is no small feat. The way the series ties together and goes back and forth with insight into all perspectives is magical 😍 the talent of this author!

The onlyyy thing I would say is the ages seem a few years too young and so unrealistic. Also, this book of the series was a bit too much ache for my heart - Lydia gets way too much bad luck lol and Killian is a bit of an ass 😂

#justiceforLydia

#justicealsoforfelix - heart melter. Ngl, I low-key wanted a song of achilles vibe plot twist with Marcus, lmao. My heart 💔

And of course, team Marcus 4 ever ❤️

Jeez, I am so invested.
I cannot wait for the next book, Scorched Earth

A Brilliant and Epic story

I don't think I've lost South sleep over a book or series for a while. The twists and turns were very entertaining, the love stories a roller coaster ride. I can't wait for the next book but I think it's going to be a long wait....
Brilliant and nail-biting the story gallops along.
