Description

After a year of fighting across three different lands, Dante and Blays have finally brought Gladdic to justice - and in the process, they've unleashed a horror beyond all reckoning.

The enemy is known as the White Lich. He is ancient. He is immensely powerful. And Gladdic believes he will soon enslave all of Tanar Atain.

Their only chance to defeat him is to strike fast, before the lich has regained his power. But attacking him directly would be suicide. Instead, Gladdic has an alternative. Once upon a time, the lich was human, with a mortal body. Gladdic believes that original body is still out there, hidden somewhere in the swamps.

If they can find it and kill it, then the lich should die with it. But if they fail, the White Lich will rip the souls from the people of Tanar Atain - and turn his gaze on the rest of the world.

Yay for Gladdic

The banter of Blase and Dante was getting a little tired. Gladdic was a welcome addition. His appraisals of stuff made me laugh out loud. :)

Good, But Not Best In Series

Any additional comments?

I've enjoyed all the Cycle of Arawn and Galand books so far, with some more than others. The Light of Life has been my least favorite book of the two series so far.It was nice to be back on an adventure with Dante and Blayze again, but this book starts out with the two trying to figure out how to kill the White Liche, and ends in pretty much the same place. The book is mostly comprised of Dante and Blayze leading their crew paddling here and there in the swamps, with a break for a few chapters of sitting in the grass trying to learn a new form of magic, and then back to paddling around.

And what ever happened to Rosha? The last three books spent a large portion of each book to build up a secondary character and story for Rosha, only to end anti-climatically with her being sent away and not given even a small part in this book. What was the point of the build up? Perhaps she will turn up later, but it seemed a missed opportunity to bring some more action to this book.

Overall, I'm sure that there were some building blocks laid in this book to help the plot of the final book of the Cycle of Galand, but this book seems to be mostly filler to extend the series. The Narration of Tim Gerald Reynolds was perfect.

Unfortunately like movies sequel isn't as good

This story leaves off much like the last book. If Mr. Robinson is going to write a series he needs to have a little bit more originality for the overall theme of the story. Still love the characters in the writing just didn't like the story as much

Good series - slow book

The book seems to float around on long narrative sections that don’t really add to the story. And some of the more pivotal scenes in the book, I found myself thinking, ‘can we just cut to the chase’. I enjoy the series and the characters. He always does a great job making you feel for each character. A decent book but not the strongest of the series.

Excellent

Yet another enchanting story from the mind of Edward W. Robertson, a writer who is rapidly becoming my favorite author. Not to mention the superb reading of Mr. Reynolds who once again magically brought not only the story but the characters to life. My only regret is the lack of another book in this series to continue reading.

Great addition

This series just gets better and better. Edward W. Robertson should be getting more hype than he is.

Brilliant! More Please!!

Its always a worry to me when reading multiple parts of a book because you never know if its going to be as good or warn out, but with that said this book 4 is absolutely amazing, it keeps me on edge for the most part and I'm asking myself constantly through this book "what's going to happen next!!??" I love how the author incorporates Gladic in this story as well as the new characters. As always the author keeps the great sense of humor of the main hero's and in my opionion goes to another level with them. The only thing I'm truly dissapointed in is how long I'm going to have to wait before the next book comes out.

Fantastic

This was really one of the best books in the series. And it had me on edge for Dante and Blaze to pull things off.

Great nail bitter!

I'm not sure where to begin..
The story picks up right after the previous book and from there forward, all predictions were thrown out the window..
I grew so use to the means and methods Dante and blaze operated by that I could almost always see what was going to happen next or at least envision their means to victory.

I really enjoyed the struggle this book has to offer and the bigger picture it develops compared to the previous books in the Galand series.

I also enjoyed seeing our main characters having to coup with a whole new feeling of hopelessness and dread and the unlikely friendships they develop along the way.


I disliked some of the talking in circles and the slow build up to the action... but overall it was worth it.
I'd recommend anyone who has gotten this far into the series to not stop now! You MUST experience this adventure!

Wow, just gets better!

I can't wait for the next book, this was something special. The only downside is having to wait for 6-12 months for the hopeful conclusion of the cycle of Galand.
