The Song of Unmaking

The Song of Unmaking, D. Barkley Briggs, Legends of Karac Tor, Living Ink books, Fantasy, October 14, 2011, 336 pages.

Synopsis: The dreadful Goths have invaded Rockval, testing the strength of Bitterland's beautiful, widowed ruler. Meanwhile, the Barlow brothers are growing stronger in their powers-all except for Ewan, who traded his gift away to save the life of his friends.

Soon it becomes clear that the Goths are the least of their worries. A terrible machine is being built high atop Mount Vishgar, above Rockval, where the raging winds never cease. If the machine really does release the Song of Unmaking, what will happen? Can Arthur lay aside his grief and once more become a great leader of men? And what is the mysterious Doorless Tower, Nein Dyrr?

My thoughts: Being the most recent of this series so far, I started to see some small writing/spelling errors in the book. Maybe these were simply overlooked, but I haven't seen these in the previous two volumes. That aside, the characters were just as good as before, the Christian story was filled in a bit more, and I'm still on edge to see what happens!

This book was provided free by the publisher in conjunction with Glass Road Public Relations. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.

My rating: 5 stars
