Maniye has brought her warband south to join the ranks of Prince Tecuman’s army, supporting his bid for the throne of the Sun River Nation. Tecuman wars with his twin sister, as both have support from among the ranks of the Snake priests.

Loud Thunder is summoned by Mother to bring all the people together at the Crown of the World to unite to fight the coming troubles. Being a loner, he has no idea how he’s going to accomplish anything when it comes to convincing tribes that hate each other to cooperate–but he’ll give it a try.

The Snake priests now have a better idea what the coming threat they’ve foretold is–and opinions on what to do vary wildly.

As these events come to a head, everyone gets a good look at the real coming threat–and it’s one nobody’s seen in ages.

The second installment in the Echoes of the Fall series, this book covers several large events in the overall story, and things are definitely heating up. Maniye has grown confidant in her own skin, and Loud Thunder learns more about leading. I really enjoy this series, and it’s going in some very interesting directions. If you haven’t picked up the first book, The Tiger and the Wolf, I highly recommend starting there and getting this one immediately after. Highly anticipating the third book.
