Summary

War rages as one empire falls and another rises in its place in the action-packed sequel to Devin Madson's bold epic fantasy, We Ride the Storm.

"An exciting new author in fantasy." (Mark Lawrence, author of Red Sister)

There is no calm after the storm.

In Kisia's conquered north, former empress Miko Ts'ai is more determined than ever to save her empire. Yet, as her hunt for allies grows increasingly desperate, she may learn too late that power lies not in names but in people.

Dishiva e'Jaroven is fiercely loyal to the new Levanti emperor. Only he can lead them, but his next choice will challenge everything she wants to believe about her people's future.

Abandoned by his Second Swords, Rah e'Torin must learn to survive without a herd. But honor dictates he bring his warriors home - a path that could be his salvation or lead to his destruction.

And sold to the Witchdoctor, Cassandra Marius' desperate search for a cure ties her fate inextricably to Empress Hana, and her true nature could condemn them both.

We Lie with Death is the thrilling continuation of a bold and brutal epic fantasy series, perfect for fans of Mark Lawrence, John Gwynne, and Brian Staveley.

Excellent writing marred by extremely unlikeable characters

Devin Madson is a really terrific writer, who created a rich and believable fantasy world with exciting story lines and unusual fantasy elements. Unfortunately, I found the characters so extremely unlikeable that I couldn’t finish the 2nd book. Rah was the one I couldn’t understand at all - constantly making the worst possible decisions and letting down the people, who trusted him, in order to rigidly follow “the old and honorable ways”, which he then abandoned instantly when needed. Mico was my favorite for a long time until her endless killing spree for the sake of the throne got to me. Cassandra’s endless negativity and cynicism made it very hard to empathize with her. None of the characters ever seem to experience any emotional growth; they just keep doing the same things over and over with (predictably) the same results. If that was what I wanted to read, I would just read the newspaper. While I don’t believe that every fantasy story has to be a saccharin Disney tale, I do need some characters that I care about and root for. Too bad - maybe the next series will have at least some positive elements
