The Orphan King now rules Magnus, finding that keeping the mysterious fortress safe from the unknown enemies within might prove to be a harder task than that of taking the fortress in the first place. Nothing is as it seems and Thomas must choose which side, if any, will claim his allegiance.
I put myself at a disadvantage by not reading the first book, which I will have to remedy;). I still found the story line of this novel fascinating and hard to put down! Perfect for young and old fans of history or fantasy style fiction!
