Jones skillfully transports us to the chilly realm of warring clans, power-hungry rulers and ancient terrifying evil. Ralf Severance and his brother Drey are young clan brothers who find their father and their leader have been ambushed and murdered by the rival clan Bludd. Soon Ralf will suspect his leader foster son and new ruler of being involved with their deaths. Jones also introduces us Ash March who is haunted by strange voices that torment her while she sleeps and her mysterious foster father and sinister plans that involve her. This novel has sinister atmosphere and is filled with scenes of sorcery, menace and mayhem. I also love the truly chilling villians like March Lord Iss who seeks to use his daughter in his cold-blooded schemes of conquest and his brutal and sinister right-hand man Malifico Eye. You will also meet crouching maiden, a deadly lady assasin who's unassuming appearance is one of her weapons.
