This is the latest installment to the Windlegends Saga. While I am one of Charlotte Boyett-Compo's biggest fans, the awards she has won for this series can attest to the quality of her writing. Over the last two years the Raven has been wrecking havoc on The Domination's coffers. Every chance he gets he holds their men up and takes their money. This is just one of the ways he intends to find the group that is now in control of the land. The Raven has decided it is time to go to Boreas Keep to continue his fight. Since few know his true identity they have no inkling that anything else may be going on. The Raven's real name is Conar McGregor, long thought dead. No one but the ones that had been interned in the Labyrinth and the man that had him sent there even has any idea that Conar truly lives. In reality Connar is dead, the man that went into the Labyrinth has very little resemblance to the man that came out. It's not only his appearance that had been altered in the Labyrinth, but also his personality. The Dark Overlord as he is referred to is a very angry and sometimes cruel man. This is a man that drinks and whores much to much. This man is not the one Liza loved as her husband. There is no one that has any clue as to the true identity of The Dark Overlord or The Raven as he is also known. Once at Boreas Keep and once his identity has been revealed the real hell begins. Obviously Conar's brother A'lex is afraid Conar will try and take his kingdom back, but even more worrisome is what will Conar do about Liza the love of his life? Will he also feel he should have her back too? Will she want him? With all that is happening Conar ends up turning to drugs for solace. He becomes addicted and becomes worse then ever. He is partial cause for Liza losing her and A'lex's baby, he abuses and mistreats her and A'lex. He even mistreats the mistress that is pregnant with his child. Through it all Conar is cruel and angry, he holds onto his feelings of betrayal by his own brother and the woman he once loved more than life itself. Then he finds the boy Liza had bargained with him to save from Kaleel Tohre is actually his own offspring. Through all this what will happen between Liza and A'lex? What about between Liza and Conar? There's no way around it someone will have to face a major heartache. Is there anything that could possibly bring back even a semblance of the old Conar? Or will this Conar/The Dark Overlord be here forever. Will the darkness in his soul overwhelm him totally or will he find an inkling of light? As with all of her books she has again left me panting for more and dying to find out what will happen next. I hope you all find her books as entertaining and engrossing as I do.
