But terrible evil awaits in Urd Morlemoch, and those who enter the Warden's clutches rarely escape them...
Review: So I got this book sort of by accident while searching the freebies, and I'm not disappointed. It ma not have been what I was looking for, but it was a good read.
So the story starts with Ridmark having a clear goal in mind. He wants to wed what amounts to a princess. He sees this mission as the type of quest to give him the edge when asking for her hand. He's very honorable throughout this book. Very committed and loyal. He refuses to leave innocents behind or abandon a fellow warrior. The warden is very interesting in that he's particularly cunning. He knows exactly how to appeal to another person's interests. But you can tell that he's clearly evil. This was a great and fairly short read
