Sophos, heir to the throne of Sounis, has disappeared without a trace. Eugenides, the new and unlikely king of Attolia, has never stopped wondering what happened to his friend. Nor has the Queen of Eddis, who once offered Sophos her hand. They send spies. They pay informants. They appeal to the gods. But as time goes by, it becomes less and less certain that they will ever see their friend alive again. Battles are fought, bribes are offered, and conspiracies are set in motion. Across the sea, a ruthless empire watches for even the slightest weakness. And Sophos, anonymous and alone, bides his time. Until, drawing on his memories of Gen, Pol, the magus—and Eddis—Sophos sets out on an adventure that will change all of their lives forever.

Maybe a bit spoilerish: I wasn’t ready for this book, maybe a bit of a reading slump unfortunately. I had thought this would be the perfect way to get back into good reading since I loved the King of Attolia. But maybe I was hoping for more Gen or even Attolia, but Sounis was not that great of a p...
The third book was better. I think one of the best things about this series is each book as a different narrator. The first three books mainly dealt with Gen. In this book he was barely in it and the scenes he was present he was aloof and didn't actually say much. From the reports that Sophos was ...
I've had this book on my "to read" list for awhile, but just never seemed to get around to it. It came up on sale for the kindle for $1.99 and I could no longer resist. It is fantastic. I was engrossed from the beginning even though I thought I knew how it would turn out. I did figure out a few ...
