The first book ended on something of a cliffhanger, with Thera the reluctant prophetess captured by a secret society of shapeshifting assassins intent on using her powers for their own ends.
While she learns more about this secretive group and the goals of the hostile sea demons, Ashok Vidal, the former Protector who has realized his whole life had been a lie, must find the secret location of his hidden House of Assassins.
And all the while, the evil Inquisitors continue their plot to consolidate power in the Capital and carry out a genocide against the casteless of the continent of Lok.
Correia takes the opportunity to explore more of this fascinating world. Ashok grows into his role as a hero and leader, holding on to this honor while learning things aren’t always as black and white as he was trained to believe. We learn more about Thera’s mysterious past and the action doesn’t let up. By the end, we’re treated to still more revelations that only whetted my appetite for the next and presumably final installment.
That would be my only criticism: this is apparently a trilogy, so the matter of the House is wrapped up, but I almost wish there was still another book dealing with the subject. Gutch is becoming my stand-out favorite and easily worth a book of his own, and Kira the assassin had potential and could have gone in some interesting directions. But apparently Correia is trying to err on the other side of the Martins and Jordans of the world and their bloated series. A sensible decision then.
I can't recommend this series highly enough and can't wait for the next book.
-If you cut it up to make wargaming terrain the map on the inside of the cover can be pretty useful
-to warn people how bad it is I have to give it at least one star.
As someone who really enjoyed other works from this author I was disgusted by how poorly written and thought out this book was. Between poor pacing and character decay it would be better if he just had given up n the series after the first book.
Please don't inflict this book on yourself, or anyone else for that matter.
Larry, I loved your other work man but this was just sad.
I am not saying I did not like it. In truth I greatly enjoyed this book and between the two love the world and characters Mr. Correia has created. What I really want to see are some bigger revelations as to how this world came to be. We had some hints but all of the big secrets are still being kept out of our reach. After years of waiting for this book I was hoping for more in the way of revelations. Supposedly the next book is close behind, and I hope it is.

Larry has taken the age old 'rescue the princess' tale and not only turned it on its head but made it readable time and again.
Can't wait for the next installment !!
The only part seemingly susceptible of improvement is the evil archvillain bargaining with the enemies of all that is humane being called other than Hillary.
