Description

Konowa Swift Dragon, former commander of the Empire's elite Iron Elves, is looked upon as anything but ordinary. He has murdered a Viceroy, been court-martialed, seen his beloved regiment disbanded, and been banished in disgrace to the one place he despises the most-the forest. Now all Konowa wants is to be left alone with his misery. But for him, nothing is ever that simple. The mysterious and alluring Visyna Tekoy, the highborn daughter of an elfkynan governor, seeks him out in the dangerous wild with a royal decree that he resume his commission as an officer in Her Majesty's Imperial Army, effective immediately. For in the east, a falling Red Star heralds the return of a magic long vanished from the earth. Rebellion grows within the Empire as a frantic race to reach the Star unfolds. It is a chance for Konowa to redeem himself-even if the entire affair appears doomed to be a suicide mission. And the soldiers recruited for the task are not at all what he expects. Worse, his key adversary in the perilous race for the Star is the dreaded Shadow Monarch-a legendary elf-witch whose machinations for absolute domination spread deeper than Konowa could ever imagine.

Professional reviews

"Michael Kramer's deep and ragged voice drives this production and keeps listeners fully entrenched in this first book by Evans. The plot centers on Konowa Swiftdragon, a successful, albeit shunned, former warrior of the Iron Elves of the Calahrian Empire. As he is aimlessly wandering, the empire calls him back for one more mission--one that will have him and his eclectic troupe running up against the dreaded Shadow Monarch. Despite his manly baritone, Kramer can still soften his vocal chords for plausible females and play a range of characters. He selects well-matched voices for those who inhabit this fantasy world and stays consistent with them. L.E. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
