Book Description

Hemlock realizes that the life of a leader is more complex and tiresome than she anticipated. Feeling burdened by her many responsibilities, she yearns for the freedom of adventure. When Tored arrives from the Witch Crags with information about the likely location of another powerful Wand, she seizes the opportunity to embark on a new quest.

Before she leaves, she entrusts a secret book into the possession of Merit, a mechanical gnome who is developing an affinity for history and lore. Merit begins to uncover an ancient narrative in those dusty pages--and he soon realizes it's the tale of the creation of the Wizard Tower itself!
Meanwhile Hemlock and Tored begin what they expect will be a simple quest to a mysterious vale nestled deep in the Witch Crags. But the adventure has several surprises in store for them...

Will Hemlock understand her ever evolving role amidst rapidly changing circumstances? And can she unite the City in time to resist the menace of the legacy of a dead God?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hemlock Action Continues April 15, 2012
By Rahvin
Format:Kindle Edition
Very good follow up to the original book in this series. The character development continues as more of their background and abilities are brought to light.

The conflict between magics and law and common man continue to be a center point to the story line and does not falter in keeping the interest level high. The fact that there is two laws of magic comes into play and you faced with deciding as you read which is being brought into play and how it will interact and what the results will be. The author takes some unexpected twists and turns which I found to be enjoyable and which kept me guessing at times.

I highly recommend this book for all ages and especially for those that have an interest in magic. I look forward to the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars When I read this book I think of Halo's environment August 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book doesn't always keep its pace, but when i pushed threw I was so very glad I did. This fantasy goes in so deep Its a world hard to imagine. But its a brilliantly developed story, being that everything is connected to the main character in so many ways that you can say Its all about Hemlock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first October 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Knowing hemlocks powers after reading the first book, this story was more understandable-less farfetched. It had an interesting climactic ending with an obvious but good lead into another story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hemlock and the dead God's legacy. July 14, 2013
By AGR11
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This second book in the series continues Hemlock's story very well. It is well written but at times the conversation between characters seems a bit stilted. The characters are developing well and Hemlock's character develops in a believable way as she is not perfect or making all the right decisions as the heroine. It is worth reading.
