When a deadly woman from a clan that tortures eagles into submission captures Morlen's dear companion, Roftome, he embarks on a quest more terrifying than any he has yet undertaken.
Going alone into the Mountains of the Lost, Morlen treks an uncertain path through hostile forces that embody the grimmest legends. Worst of all are the Pyrnaq - wretched, twisted corruptions of the free eagles they once were - and their overwhelming presence is a constant reminder of the terrible fate that he must spare Roftome at all costs.
Held as a prized acquisition within the clandestine force that eagle-kind has dreaded for centuries, Roftome finds himself uniquely positioned to influence his abused brothers and sisters whose minds may still be salvageable. The cost of this rare opportunity, though, quickly proves more severe than he'd anticipated.
Despite the absence of their two strongest allies, King Verald and Lady Valeine lead the Eaglemasters on a massive campaign to wipe the Ferotaur Wildlands clean of their ancient enemies. But as they delve deeper into the overrun wasteland, they hear whispers of a watchful evil that their intrusion might soon unleash.
On a desolate corner of the world and threatened on every side, Morlen realizes that his only hope is to unite with one of the fierce ghouls he fought in his first adventure. And as the days pass into weeks, and months, he grows more afraid whether the end of his long journey will bring him face to face with the friend he lost or...with something else.

Loved it - a worthy (if not better) sequel!
Loved it - a worthy (if not better) sequel! This second book has been a long time coming, but was certainly worth the wait! Author C.L. Murray has a way of consistently choosing a main theme to explore in his novels (complex relationships with fathers, personality evolution and growth through hardship, self-perspective vs. how others see you) and then looking at that theme openly and honestly from every character's perspective - but not in a way that feels forced. Each story is so solidly told, and the themes woven in so organically, that you just end up really enjoying a freaking amazing classic epic fantasy... and in classic epic fantasy style, you then end up *thinking* about the story and the characters long after you're done (with the FIRST read through).
