In Dark Service possesses much complexity in terms of its detailed and often riveting exploration of locales and the differing characters which call them home ( Film in Words)
the ultimate test of a fantasy book is whether you want to read further volumes, and here In Dark Service succeeds magnificently 4* ( SFX)
The first of a trilogy, it builds a strong foundation for a world that still has so much to explore, with strong and interesting characters that have firmly found their feet in a wonderfully told story ( Sci-Fi Now)
The power struggle begins . . .
The people of Weyland always believed the slavers raids, which destroyed families and homes like a natural disaster, were a misfortune that couldn't be averted or stopped.
But it's not true.
King Marcus struck a deal: his people in exchange for technology and a powerful alliance with the Vandian civilisation.
And now everyone knows.
Jacob and Carter Carnehan escaped the slavers - along with the true king of Weyland - and have returned home with both the truth, and a Vandian princess as their hostage. Their purpose was to avoid war . . . instead, the truth prompts a civil war at home - while an invasion force focused on reclaiming the captive princess starts to gather on their borders.
Jacob and Carter will be separated once again - and this time they're fighting for something bigger than their lives.
