Summary

After tasting financial success and the Shadow Knights’ power, Veron lost everything.

Now, trapped in slavery, jealous servants and harsh justice threaten his ability to fulfill his destiny. Caught between secrets he cannot divulge and attention from the master’s daughter, Chelci, Veron must choose between following the rules or following his heart as he fights to rise again.

Meanwhile, King Bale searches to kill the young shadow knight, and Veron’s old friend Brixton is the only one who knows where he is. Will the lure of power entice Brixton to turn on him again? His first betrayal nearly cost Veron everything. A second would cost him his life.

Great book!

I really enjoyed the storyline, but the varon is a little too predictable. Like why are you letting your girlfriend who can’t fight nearly as good as you come with you. Of course she’s going to be a hostage lol. Still love this series! Thanks for the awesome book!

Fabulous second entry by amazing new author!

I found this book engaging, enticing and enthralling. You are drawn to really hate the villain and truly root for the hero. I am so looking forward to the finale!

you hate to see it

This is probably one of the reviews I'll hate leaving, but I'll leave it in hopes the author will read it. I like the concept of this story, but the author writes it in a way that is stilted, predictable and often flat out lazy.

Often the author relies on the extraordinary stupidity of characters he wrote as insightful and intelligent in the first book. Ridiculously idiotic things will happen over and over again. Hey bad guy who has it out for me, I'll go out of my way to allow you to screw me over time and time again because I'm a moron.

hey plot device. I'm never useful to the MC save to screw up whatever they have planned because of sheer stupidity. over and over again. so rest assured when you think its better for me to stay behind to protect people, I'll give you no good reason to refute that order. I'll also make sure the people you try to protect die and frequently become your achilles heal because I'm dumb as hell despite my training.

If you're looking for a book with intelligent characters who do intelligent things, wrong book. this book will go out of its way to make sure they are @)@umb as can be. save your money

Grrrr

This writer is gifted in making a person become invested in the story. The narrator is likewise gifted. The story itself is well written and enthralling. All this, makes the issues more painful. Characters bend in personality and ability to fit a certain plot path. People with great ability become useless. Intelligent people stupid. One moment a person is capable of battle against a cross between a sabertooth and a stegosaurous and the next a spoiled child can defeat them. If it was all around badly written I would just dismiss these books as trash. It's because the author obviously has so much ability that the literary laziness hurts so much.
