Waiqar, Lord of the Mistlands, is a necromancer of supreme power, arrogance, and skill. Driven by his hunger for power, he has the whole of Terrinoth in his sights. But before he can raise his undead armies and march on the Baronies, his hold on the Mistlands must be complete. Waiqar’s court is rife with scheming and deception, from corrupt vampires with plans to usurp him, to an apprentice harboring dark ambition of his own. As his enemies vie for power, Waiqar’s own plans come to fruition. For power is hard won but easily lost, and this great necromancer has more to lose than anyone.
A Note From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR ROBBIE MACNIVEN
“It's clear that MacNiven knows his stuff, and the fights feel like they leap off the page and are wonderfully clear and easy to follow. He gives plenty of detail, enough that you can clearly picture everything that's happening, and you'll soon find yourself getting swept up by the grandeur of it.”
Transcribe, on Zachareth
“Page-turningly addictive… It’s quite dark and surprisingly powerful, and a far more emotional story (no spoilers) than you might expect. Very much worth checking out.”

I chose this book on the off chance and I am so glad I did. OMG WHAT A READ!!!!!
Very dark, very bloody and so much more. I was hooked from the first to the last page. Waiqar is the great Necromancer and the undying. He was once an apprentice to a great wizard. He is now king and has his own death legion. He is master of his realm and has his own method of dealing with unrest. This book is full on and definitely not for the squeamish. These pages are soaked in blood. Vampires, humans and everything that once was dead. I loved the back story, the writing is brilliant and so descriptive. The world building is dark and dismal. An action packed dark, dark fantasy. I have found a new author and he has been added to my MUST READ pile. The start of a new series can I have the next book now PLEASE!!!!!
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC in return for giving an honest review.
