The national bestselling Noble Dead saga is “one of those [series] for which the term dark fantasy was definitely intended” ( Chronicle ).

After her adventures with Magiere and Leesil, Wynn Hygeorht has returned to the Guild of Sagecraft, bearing texts supposedly penned by vampires from the time of the Forgotten History and the Great War. Seized by the Guild’s scholars and sent out for copying without Wynn’s consent, several pages disappear—and the two sages charged with conveying these pages are murdered. Suspicious of the Guild, separated from the only friends she fully trusts, and convinced the Noble Dead are responsible for the killings, Wynn embarks on a quest to uncover the secrets of the texts.

Wynn is my least favourite of this series characters and the book is hard to get through - it's all focused on her story. All the characters are either incompetent or corrupt and there are so many villians it just gets tiresome. Wynn is her usual ineffectual self and keeps bleating for Chap to save the day. What a disappointment.

A nice beginning for the 2nd series. I was a little surprised with the charters, but after reading the book it was a necessary change. Looking forward to the next book!
