Summary:

In the thrilling conclusion to the “deftly and originally executed” (Booklist) New York Times bestselling trilogy, Vaelin Al Sorna must help his Queen reclaim her Realm. Only his enemy has a dangerous new collaborator, one with powers darker than Vaelin has ever encountered…

“The Ally is there, but only ever as a shadow, unexplained catastrophe or murder committed at the behest of a dark vengeful spirit. Sorting truth from myth is often a fruitless task.”

After fighting back from the brink of death, Queen Lyrna is determined to repel the invading Volarian army and regain the independence of the Unified Realm. Except, to accomplish her goals, she must do more than rally her loyal supporters. She must align herself with forces she once found repugnant—those who possess the strange and varied gifts of the Dark—and take the war to her enemy’s doorstep.

Victory rests on the shoulders of Vaelin Al Sorna, now named Battle Lord of the Realm. However, his path is riddled with difficulties. For the Volarian enemy has a new weapon on their side, one that Vaelin must destroy if the Realm is to prevail—a mysterious Ally with the ability to grant unnaturally long life to her servants. And defeating one who cannot be killed is a nearly impossible feat, especially when Vaelin’s blood-song, the mystical power which has made him the epic fighter he is, has gone ominously silent…

    The ending was a let down, seeing there wont be a 4th book most likely as told from the ending unless the writer can pull something. Alot of combat all around with magic unleashed, way more then the second book.

  • Ivan Skibinsky

    Very poor ending! There better be a 4th book in the series to tie up the ending.

  • Michael Johnson

    Great! I can't wait for the next one. Excellent storyline.

    I loved this book. Loved this series, and I seriously don't think they could have picked a better narrarator. I know a lot of people felt bored by Tower Lord because it didn't focus solely on the main character, and I was worried about that too, but that book sets you up perfectly for this one. In Tower Lord you are introduced to more characters and you get a better feel for existing characters. In Queen of Fire I found myself excited for every chapter, every character POV, and I couldn't wait to hear more. Vaelin's isn't the only story to tell, remember that. I highly recommend this entire series, and I will be reading it all over again now. It was hard to remember a lot of things because I had to wait between each book, but I think it'll be even better a second time.
