“The Sixth Order wields the sword of justice and smites the enemies of the Faith and the Realm."

Vaelin Al Sorna was only a child of ten when his father left him at the iron gate of the Sixth Order—a caste devoted to battle. Vaelin will be trained and hardened to the austere, celibate and dangerous life of a warrior of the Faith. He has no family now save the Order.

Vaelin’s father was Battle Lord to King Janus, ruler of the Unified Realm—and Vaelin’s rage at being deprived of his birthright knows no bounds. Even his cherished memories of his mother are soon challenged by what he learns within the Order.

But one truth overpowers all the rest: Vaelin Al Sorna is destined for a future he has yet to comprehend. A future that will alter not only the Realm, but the world.

Very good book. I read it quickly and then a second time. Anthony Ryan will develop his skill and I look forward to his future novels.

Intriguing fantasy is such a rare find. If you are a Tolkien and Rothfuss fan, look no further.

Not my usual genre but I'm glad I decided to give this novel a read. Loved the story; interesting, fluid & lots of intrigue. Can't wait to see what Vaelin does in book two!

I really enjoyed this book. It was an engaging plot with interesting characters. For those who enjoy fantasy fiction, this is another great author coming out of the UK recently. I'm looking forward to the next book coming out next spring.
