Trinity Rising ended
with Gair rescuing the nuns from Gimrael and he now escorts them to safety and continues
his quest to find the starseed before Savin, who will use it to rip the Veil, releasing
the Wild Hunt. Gair finds the Warlord of the Emperor to warn him of the threat of the Wild
Hunt. At the same time Masen and Sorchal are finding and repairing the tears in the Veil.
Failing to convince the Ten the threat of the Wild Hunt is relevant to
them, Tanith has left her people to warn the Empire. Accompanied by her former lover
Ailric, who views humans with contempt, she reaches the Warlord of the Emperor to raise
Drwyn, manipulated by Ytha, has united the Nimrothi clans to invade the
Empire and regain the lands. Ytha plans to use the Wild Hunt against the Empire and has
received the gift of two of Maegerns Wild Hounds.
Teia is leading her group of Nimrothi outcasts the Lost Ones
through the snow to warn the Empire of the need for the Iron Men to fight the Wild Hunt
being led by Ytha and the clans, as they are the only ones who can defeat it.
With two of Maegerns hounds already free, Savin playing his evil
games, and the Veil tearing, the danger is immense. With Gairs immense power
corrupted by Savin, they must unite to defeat the threat to the world.
This is fast paced with a tightly wound plot and plenty of action. The
threads intricately weave together tightly as events unfold, requiring a bit of
concentration to remember the separate storylines. The characters are well developed and
you feel you know them. The ending is a real cliff-hanger and I was disappointed it
stopped there but pleased I had another book to look forward to. For epic fantasy fans
this is a must read and I strongly recommend you read the preceding books in the series to
get the back-story.
