This is Book Three in "The Dragon King Trilogy". From the rear cover: "The noble King Eskevar is dead and Quentin, wielder of the Zhaligkeer, has ascended to the throne of Mensandor--achieving a greatness undreamed of in his earlier life as a young acolyte of a pagan god. But the crown rests heavily upon his head. For his son has been kidnapped and his most trusted counselor slain by the base and powerful necromancer Nimrood, anchnemesis of the realm. And now fate will test the Dragon King as never before--impelling Quentin, unguarded and alone, toward a dread confrontation with the forces of a relentless and devastating Evil."

Not nearly as strong as the first 2 books in this series in my opinion. I just felt like the story dragged alot more as compared to the first 2 (much like Lawheads Song of Albion trilogy) ......its like he didnt have enough story and had to stretch it out. Someday Mr. Lawhead will nail the 3rd book in a trilogy.
