Synopsis

 Conal has lived most of his life with a price on his head but as he approaches manhood, the list of people trying to kill him, continues to grow. He must attend the Gathering of the Clans and be declared a man, before he can claim his right to the throne of the Dragon Clan.
Meanwhile, Maerlin’s dreams are still troubling her. The Gods has been manipulating her for her whole life. Now, it’s time for Maerlin to make her own destiny.
At the quiet monastery of Leithban, the tranquillity of the monks’ daily lives is torn asunder when a blind stranger arrives at their door.
Malachi’s simple life of debauchery as a court jester is about to get wildly out of control. Is it possible to be a fool and a hero at the same time?

***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***

Nav told the NerdGirl team that this could be read as a ‘stand alone’.
I disagree. It is very much worth the effort but I strongly advise reading Book One, Maerlin’s Storm first. Without that as a background I would have been lost and would have been half way through the book before I caught up.  The characters of Maerlin and Conal develop from being a witch coming into her powers with puberty and a street urchin/thief into probably the most powerful practitioner of Wild Magic on the world and a young man destined to be King.
The standard set in ‘Maerlin’s Storm’ is maintained and I thoroughly recommend that this be read, with the proviso that, as I said above, I want you to read Book One first.
Like me, you will then look forward to the conclusion (or perhaps not the conclusion) of the story in Book Three (to be released this summer.)
