Damianos of Akielos has returned.
His identity now revealed, Damen must face his master Prince Laurent as Damianos of Akielos, the man Laurent has sworn to kill.
On the brink of a momentous battle, the future of both their countries hangs in the balance. In the south, Kastor's forces are massing. In the north, the Regent's armies are mobilising for war. Damen's only hope of reclaiming his throne is to fight together with Laurent against their usurpers.
Forced into an uneasy alliance the two princes journey deep into Akielos, where they face their most dangerous opposition yet. But even if the fragile trust they have built survives the revelation of Damen's identity - can it stand against the Regent's final, deadly play for the throne?
I'm confused... beyond confused... I am lost with a map and no sense of direction.
Where are these extra characters coming from? How did the captivity happen? Who's army is it outside?
The easy solution ending was too easy and didn't really make a whole lot of sense.
I'm not sure if I just forgot all the previous plot or what but I spent most of the book being completely lost.
I think its time that I go back and re read this trilogy from the beginning because I don't know what happened in this book because I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS BOOK.
