War has come to the Winter Kingdoms. The Dread will rise. Kings will fall.
Summoner-King Tris Drayke takes what remains of his army north to fight a war he is ill-prepared to fight, as reports from spies confirm Tris’s worst fear. A new threat rises across the sea: a dark summoner who intends to make the most of the Winter Kingdoms’s weakness.
And in Isencroft, Kiara’s father is assassinated and she will now have no choice except to return and claim the crown. But she must leave behind her husband Tris and their infant son and face the dark power that threatens her rule.
THE DREAD is the epic conclusion to the Fallen Kings Cycle.
Book Two of The Fallen Kings Cycle Series
I must admit to a ridiculous weakness for epic fantasy series. So when I read the description of The Dread I had to read it. And I am really happy I did.
The Dread is the second book in the Fallen Kings Cycle series by Gail Z Martin. I did not read the first book in te series before reading this one but I had no trouble getting into, following and enjoying the story. There are mentions to things that I assume happened in the first book but they did not detract from the story or confuse me as I read.
My favorite character is definitely Kiara. She is strong, proud and faces the challenges in her life head on.
All of the characters in The Dread are well written. The story flows well and the scenes are vividly described.
The Dread really was a delight to read.
