“Scare my horse, will you, inhuman lord of turbulence? I’ve cast off godly love for affront to my mount before. Begone, if You’ve no purpose here. I’ve no time to—“
And Stormbring responded: “Silence! Mortal toad. Spawn of dirt and blood. Have you not said the soul is water and from water comes the soul? You know your danger!”
Tempus came right back at him: “So You think to affright me? Am I not plagued with Your daughter? Is it not enough to torture me, that You must threaten me into the bargain? I’ve called it quits with gods and their untimely aid and comfort. Get Thee back to Thine unearthly home!”
Stormbringer will not be denied: “My daughter, mortal-lover, is with you. More, she craves to stay with you, at any cost. Her power and her heritage she petitions to forfeit, to be a wife to you and spread her legs for you and bear a child to you when, but for you, she would be the honored consort of the entelechy of dreams! I hold you responsible for this! Dissuade her, affected demigod, or the sufferings of your wasted youth will be nothing to the torture of your endless old age! Be warned!”
I can go on and on. This is excellent stuff. The work of a brilliant storyteller, with compelling plot, and masterful dialogue – battles, politics, wars, romance, it has it all. Great series!
But what to say without giving too much away?
Someone is trying to send Tempus secret messages, vital to the stability of the region. However, 'someone else' is equally as determined to make sure those messages never get through. But who?
The only person who may hold a key to what is happening is a victim of murder, so the Stepsons are forced to turn to their Hazard Mage, Randal, for help. What he learns sets in motion a series of events that indirectly leads to alliances neither Tempus - or his beloved men really want. Treachery abounds. But who among the Tysian locals, Rankan soldiers, and Mygdonian refugees and defectors can be trusted?
And what happens when Tempus realizes just how effective fighting fire with fire - or in this case - magic with magic - can actually be? Will the Stepsons be happy?
Janet creates a fantastic world with characters you can readily relate to, (and those you just want to strangle - Roxanne!), and blends them into a most entertaining story.
Sorry if this review doesn't give much of the plot away. I never do that. However, what I can say, is you won't be disappointed. If you enjoy great fantasy stories with great plots, I can guarantee you'll love this series.
I've already brought the following 2 books - Beyond Wizardwall and The Sacred Band, and can't wait to get into them.

Some new characters are introduced, namely Kama, a feisty female warrior who is not all she seems. Better still there is a lot of character development here, particularly for Niko and Randall; at times heartbreaking and at times enlightening the story draws the reader in from the beginning. This is the middle book of the trilogy so it does help to have read the previous one, however the characters are so rich and the world so well-crafted it is not essential.
