Description

Few people survive the suffering that Kael Symes has experienced. Hot steel, demonic magic, and the loss of those he loved.

After escaping the horrors of Arkum Zul, Kael and his companions survive a terror-filled night on the ocean only to find themselves shipwrecked and stranded in the Wildlands. With forest tribals on the warpath and old enemies roaming the forest, Kael struggles to come to terms with what he is slowly becoming - a killer. A DeathWizard.

In the fight against the evil that threatens to consume him, Kael learns that the Dwarven Mountains far to the north may hide an ancient monolith that holds the answer to the corruption that flows in his veins.

But trekking across Talohna is a dangerous prospect. It is a world that holds its secrets close. The cost of uncovering them may very well be his soul and quite possibly his life.

Great books series

Discovered this hidden gem about a month ago and I have blown through both books in no time at all. Thoroughly enjoy the twist and turns, and the storylines keep you on your toes. Anxiously await the next in the series!!

Frustrating, and dissapointing

You know those movies where problems could be solved if the girl didn't run away and just listened to a few words? This book reads like this. Every character makes such bad decisions that could be avoided if they just sat and think for 10 mins. I loved the first book, but this second was just too frustrating having me wish everyone would just die from their poor decisions.

Very Frustrating! Parts are really well done<br />

As others have indicated the over use of coincidental non encounters is way over done

Good wtiting Bad book

I want to say this book is really great I really do the writings well done and the story is good but the author seems to want to use so many clifhangers the book becomes impossible to read. I would gladly read this book if literally, he wrote one line differently.

This book is incredibly infuriating the entire permise of the book seems to be the MC dealing with prejudice and whatnot but the author dangles a massive clifhanger over you for the entire two books so what might have been amazeing turns into a really infuriating book about the MC failing to find his wife or even learn shes alive when he could learn for some magical reason one of the characters happens to be in the way and stop him I wouldn't mind it so much if it didnt feel like it was just the author teasing the reader his wife has an ability to dream walk and straight up told him she was alive through dreams but for some reason he believes that his wife is dead even though their entire backstory says even on the most faint hope he would believe she was alive not only that but his wife can teleport and she never once seems to try teleporting to him.

So frustrating and breaks one of my cardinal rules

This book is way too frustrating, and it breaks one of my cardinal rules.

1. There are so many scenes in this book where you believe the main characters are finally going to meet up only to have some random occurrence happen out of nowhere to ruin everything.

2. The main villains never die. A witch gets stabbed through the stomach, no problem, we'll just have her walk by herself for a day and randomly run into some people who can help. An assassin gets killed. Maybe not, we'll just get a necromancer (who was actually looking for someone else) to stumble across him in the afterlife and bring him back instead. One of the main villains finally killed... Nope, gotcha again. This time we’ll get him to use an illusion to make someone else look like him while he stays watching in the shadows.

3. Finally, my biggest issue, the cardinal rule if you will, is that you never kill off the main protagonist unless this is the last book in the series. Almost all of the story lines in this series revolve around one guy. If that guy dies, and you don't find a way to bring him back right away (like you did all of the villains), then that's the end of the story. This series is over. I'm left wondering why a third book was even written. As a general rule, if the main character dies, I stop following any remaining books (unless there's a character spin off).

Gripping and Exciting

Very fast paced and action packed and love the world building. Wasn't expecting the ending to be like this. Can't wait to read the next book.

Amazing read

I was so frustrated at some points throughout this story that I felt like throwing my iPod through the window. It’s definitely worth reading but ughhhhhhhhh -So many misunderstandings and missed opportunities to clear everything up.. -

Lots of potential but poor execution

The main story and premise of this book are very enticing. Without spoiling the book, I can say that it very cleverly combines compelling and original ideas in a way that could have been groundbreaking. Sadly, the execution fails miserably for the same reasons the first book failed in this series: The story is ultimately sadistic and punishing to the reader. Even in the most got wrenching fantasies like Song of Ice and Fire, there is some catharsis. For example, when Eddard Stark was killed, Danerys got her dragons. In Blood of the Lost, the good guys lose over and over again without any cathartic moments. This book feels like being tortured before you are executed; it just piles on the suffering and the pain in a sadistic matter. As was the case with the first book, read it if you are a masochist who enjoys suffering, Or if you enjoy siding with the bad guys. Otherwise avoid at all costs. The ending was so devastating and heartbreaking that it made me wonder if the author is acting out cruel and sadistic Fantasies in this book (and the previous one).
