The Wounded Shadow
The kings and queens of the northern continent lay siege to the Darkwater Forest, desperate to contain its evil. But rumors of gold and aurium have lured deserters and the desperate into its shadow, creating a growing army held in its sway. Desperate after the death and dissolution of their greatest ally, Willet and the Vigil seek the truth of what lies at the heart of the evil they face. They delve the mind of an old enemy and find an answer far worse than they could have imagined.
Danger stalks the cities of the north, striking at the rulers of the kingdoms. As Willet and the rest of the Vigil seek to find answers, the group is scattered with an ever-growing darkness around them. Will they discover a path to keep their land safe, or will an ancient evil reclaim the world it once called its own?
My thoughts: It took me a while to finally pick this book up, which I regret now, since it would of been best to read the series close together, since I forgot some of the smaller pieces of the story and probably missed out on some nuances! That said, I enjoyed this series tremendously! Patrick does a fabulous job of bringing the world to life, developing the characters, and adding surprising twists into the story! This book has 3 different stories woven together, which bringing a bigger picture to life. I highly recommend this one!
I received this book through Netgalley.
