It’s here, the long-awaited sequel to Winds of War! Enjoy the continuing adventures of Mark as he hastens on towards his definitive encounter with Lord Merek. But that’s not all that’s at stake. With each passing day, the pressure grows on Mark to prove himself a strong leader to everyone. Of course, his well-meaning friends do their best to keep him safe, i.e. far away from danger of any sort. Yet the strong-willed prince will have his way, no matter the cost.
Over in Orrenda, things are nearing the boiling point. The Gerdians have seized control of almost the whole country. Castle Marlow is the last remaining stronghold. There Marisa hopes to find help for her friends. No one’s interested, however, in listening to this insignificant girl. At least, at first.
