Ranger's Apprentice meets Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time in this richly imagined sequel to The Nethergrim ! In a vast kingdom divided by power-hungry lords, land equals power. With the Nethergrim now awake, her limitless wellspring of evil means opportunity for those willing t...o do her bidding. One ambitious Lord, eager to overthrow his counterparts and rule the north, succumbs to temptation, helping to let loose the Skeleth, forces of energy that absorb whole anyone who attempts to kill them. In this way the slain end up as slayers, a vicious cycle that never ends. Yet that will not stop young Edmund--an apprentice wizard--and his friends Katherine and Tom, from trying to stop the evil threatening to overtake their kingdom. Together, they team up with the legendary Tristan in a battle of courage, brains, determination, and sacrifice to stop the Skeleth and save the Barony of Elverain from being conquered. This adventurous tale filled with magic, greed, and a desperate power-grab is perfect for fans who enjoy the epic worlds of John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice, Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, and even Geroge R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones.
