The character of Lorn also has a maligned past as a wicked tyrant. In his arduous struggle against Carr, he has been starving his people, becoming a despot and bled his nation dry.

There is a sense of epic about this novel, as in the best of fantasy novels, yet you get a sense of Marco holding back, not revealing his whole hand, in terms of what can be told in this world. The sense of wonder when reading of Grimhold, when being in the scenes of the battle against Azar, all equate to a fine, entertaining reading experience. As the novel begins to draw to a close, it becomes evident the whole story will not end in this volume.
At its heart, though, this is a novel about people, and the human spirit.
