Part of the Trinity series
Only the Trinity can stop the vengeful god Orlac from destroying the Land.
Yet the Trinity itself remains a mystery. Saved from death by a powerful act of Spiriting, Torkyn Gynt completes his healing in the sanctuary of the Heartwood.
But Orlac's powers are waxing, and time is running out. Torkyn is forced to spread his resources thin, sending his spirit companion, Yargo, to find the three mysterious Stones of Ordolt, while he sets out on a dangerous mission to track down his enemy, Goth.
But Tor's quest is sidetracked when his falcon, Cloot, is captured by pirates and he himself falls victim to slave ships. In Tallinor, Alyssa believes her beloved Tor is dead and must find the strength to forgive the King who ordered his execution.
Meanwhile, the Paladin gather around those they protect, unaware that a new terror is emerging to threaten the Land ...

Review by wyvernfriend
This, second volume in the series is a pretty typical epic fantasy story. The good guys are learning more about themselves and how they are going to have to fight the great evil and the main hero is learning how powerful he is. I have to admit that this was very hard to swallow. The main character is too good, too perfect, almost every woman falls at his feet and men either envy or admire him. He stretched my credulity just a little bit too much.I also have a slight problem with people losing memories and it not being a great deal for them, that also doesn't ring true to me.It was quite readable but there are numerous flaws, I've listed the ones that bugged me most, however it kept my attention and I look forward to finishing the series.
