Publisher's Summary

Song of Night is book two in the best-selling epic fantasy series The Dying Lands Chronicle.

The veil has been torn.

The ancient dark has risen.

Dark harmonies echo throughout the world.

But the ancient Axioms of Light have been spoken once again.

In the midst of the Dark’s swelling tide, Reign Kerr has emerged with the mythical power of the Ancients, a power she wielded to defeat the brutal Borathein invasion. Reign must now discover the keys to the Gates of Confluence if the world has any hope of salvation - a journey that will unearth heretical secrets and change her in ways she may not be strong enough to survive.

Hedron struggles to rebuild Arlethia and solidify his rule in the aftermath of the Borathein invasion, but new threats arise from within and push allegiances to the brink. A subtle darkness stirs within him as he is called upon to look beyond his own people’s welfare, threatening to overwhelm him and put those he strives to lead in mortal danger.

Call forth the Heralds. Gather the Witnesses. Let the Blood of Creation again flow.

Best Yet for Jacob Cooper

I've enjoyed every book Jacob Cooper has written, but this has been the best one so far. There's a lot more complexity to this story than I first imagined from the previous books and I love it! I'm really excited to see where this series goes from here.

So many bad dudes. so many!

this was a book that I waited many years to finally read. it started off very strong and it ended very strong. if you like battles on many different fronts, then this book is for you. I have no complaints but... I did say a lot of bad words and I was pacing while listening to this book. The magic building for this book is seriously vivid and uniquely done. good job Jacob Cooper

Disappointed after Years of waiting

Had to deal with the bullcrap of Audible trying to charge a credit for the revised version of COR. Then two plus year wait. You can listen to the first 3 hours of the book then skip to the last 2 chapters and miss nothing. Lots of filler in the middle that did not advance the story. The taint the taint I thought I was listening to Sanderson talk about Kaladin in ROW.

This is one of my favorites!!

This series has been a great listen. Make sure you start with the Alter of Influence, it gets you into the world and gives you all the background you need to understand the world.

All the characters in this series are very enjoyable. All to often I listen to books that have a great premise but the characters are unlikeable but that’s definitely not the case here. I loved listening to the arc of each character. Every aspect keeps you engaged and asking for more when Cooper moves on the next chapter. Honestly this book is everything that I could have asked for. I love it!! Can’t wait for the next installment!! Oh and Micheal Kramer is great as always. You should definitely listen to this series!!

Another AMAZING book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Once I got started I was hooked. Cooper really has a way of captivating the audience and just making you never want to put the book down. Can’t wait for the next book to come out!

Amazing sequel!

It's been so worth the wait! When I found out SON is coming out, I quickly binge read Circle of Reign and fell in love with the story again.

Song of Night is another binge-worthy read. The story just sucks you in. It's vivid and captivating in the same way that Sanderson and other great authors of our time are! Cooper does a masterful job. I found myself listening late into the night, and when I dozed off I went back and picked it back up again.

Last to mention is the masterful performance of Kramer. 5 stars for EVERYTHING. This is not one you want to miss!

High Praise for a complex web...

Song of Night continues in Cooper's EPIC style, which still reminds me of both Jordan and Sanderson. I can't tell you how excited I was to jump back into this world, and this book seriously expands the world! The writing and story are so cinematic, just like Circle of Reign. No screen required for this movie! Minor characters become much more important, and things seeded from Altar of Influence start to take center stage. I just can't say enough about the flow, the intensity, the high stakes... The characters feel apart of my life.

I lost a lot of sleep. The story would not let me go!! Even after I finished (the end is AWESOME) I'm still just thinking and thinking and thinking... BRAVO!

Fantastic!!!

Fantasy fans this series is incredible, it was a long wait for book 2 but it was worth every minute! I couldn’t stop listening. I could see this series going two to three more books easy! I would devour every one. What do you say Jacob? I hope we don’t have to wait as long on the next one but I totally will if you promise to make it this good!

Waited patiently, and it didn't disappoint

I loved every second of it. Nice to have the characters back and fleshed out even further. Michael Kramer can do no wrong, as always, perfectly brings each character to life. More please!!!

Majestic fantasy writ large

When I first discovered COR I was gripped by the intensity of the characters and the uniqueness of the world in which they lived. Song of Night brings this world back in a blazing bonfire of action, horror and intrigue.

If you’re a fan of epic, world-building fantasy then I suspect JC is just getting started. The world of Våleria is bursting with variety and a wealth of creatures, characters, and magic that’s not been seen before.

If you haven’t read COR then start there. Like some of the great fantasy writers like Brooks, Fiest, Sanderson and Jordan, their Opus works can take a bit of catching up. Especially with character names, histories and motives all woven together. It’s worth getting the novellas and prequel under your belt too if you really want the full experience.

Can’t wait to see what happens next.
