Publisher's Summary

Henry Vestin always believed that, despite being a carpenter with no training in swordplay or survival, he could lead Isabelle and his friends to safety. He thought he could defy an emperor and protect Isabelle from harm. He was certain that love and friendship would help them survive.

He was wrong.

The second volume in the Tale of Light and Shadow series follows Henry and his friends after the disastrous battle at the Iron Pass. Horrors await the band of travelers in strange new lands. Crippled and broken, Henry must rely on his friends more than ever. New allies and foes find them at every turn, but which are friendly and which are deadly? Isabelle, now a slave in Neverak, finds herself surrounded by enemies, uncertain about the fate of her friends and relying on only herself to survive. The emperor moves forward with his plans of conquest, spurred on by the Seer's dark prophecy, but he has not forgotten those who defied him.

Return to the world of Atolas, where swords and daggers extend life or end it, where feuds and friendships influence kingdoms and courtships, and where magic is feared by all but a few.

No book 3

Just finished listening to the first 2 books of the series, but it’s awful to find out the publisher hasn’t allowed a book 3, so the cliffhanger will just have to wait until enough support comes for the finale.

I need the next book!

It breaks my heart that there isnt a finale to this book series. I'm fully invested in these characters, flawed as they are. Narration was wonderful.

Why no book 3? 😭

Loved this series so much, but I HATE cliffhangers when I don’t already have the next book to read. Very disappointing. This story was really creative and romantic and I could not stop listening to it. I hope that Jacob Gowans will write a third book soon!

More Please!

More Please!! I join with the others in giving thanks to the author for keeping his books clean. I loved that I didn't have to hurry and turn it off if my children came into the room. I will happily recommend these books to friends, but please give us the rest of the story 😊

No Book 3 why?

I got super invested in these characters and now there’s no book 3 I don’t get to see how it ends. Why?
