This is book two of A Land Fit for Heros.
The alien Kiriath had used their technology to save the world from dark magic and then disappeared. Now the Ilwrack Changeling is stirring but without the Kiriath, the worlds has only the warrior Ringil and his few trusted allies to save them. Redemption and survival won't come cheap.
Fast-paced, character-driven and intelligent, this is my favorite kind of fantasy. Well done, with something for everyone, this series belongs on award lists and on your shelves. I couldn't put it down. May there be many more. Enjoy.~~ Pam Allan
