Truly fantastic story!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 June 2016
Fabulous tale, in all senses of the word! Good characterizations and imagery. Downright scary in places!
An interesting new take on old fantasy cliche'sReviewed in the United States on 23 January 2011
This book, in my opinion, was much better than any of its predecessors from the Age of Misrule trilogy. The characters are more likable and are far less annoying than the group from Misrule. Yes, there are a couple of lame fantasy book cliche's in here, but the mixture of old world mythology and new age mentality works fairly well. Chadbourn does, unfortunately, draw certain things out WAY too long such as the main character's deep dark secret and the identity of the main villain(That one never does get adequately explained. Something to push you into reading the next volume, I guess), but overall it was a solid story. It really digs deep into the way religion can be both empowering in times of crisis and also how too much power can corrupt even those with good intentions. In a world full of returned Celtic gods and lethal fairy tale monsters, is there any room for a religion where your prayers aren't instantly answered and there's no evidence that your God is even listening? This book asks that question and asks how far simple faith can take you. The author manages to balance the weighty religious subject material with some good old fashioned fantasy carnage. A terrible un-killable phantasm that haunts an ancient cathedral, an all out assault on a group of knights by a fire breathing dragon, and a siege by an unholy army of beasts from the ancient world are all here for your reading pleasure. To sum this review up...this may not be the best fantasy book around, but it should rank right up there with some of the better books to come down the road in recent years. Give it a look. You might be pleasantly surprised.

a gripper.Reviewed in the United States on 14 August 2015
A gripper. I could not put down his first trilogy, and I'm enjoying this one just as much. A great blend of action, fantastic recycling of Celtic myths, and well-drawn characters.

Frustratingly jumpyReviewed in the United States on 2 January 2015
A good start to the trilogy but the story-line meanders a little too much for my liking. Very readable still, and enjoyed
