Overview

They’ve survived the end of their universe….

But now, nearly three hundred years after the time of Ragnarok—the death battle of the gods—humankind faces a new and potentially fatal trial. The balance between Law and Chaos has long been maintained by the rulers of Bearn, but with the current king dying, a new keeper of neutrality must be found among his heirs. And with an unknown enemy bent on destroying all who stand in line to the throne, King Kohleran has no choice but to decree that anyone with a claim to the crown must take the Test of the Staves.

What the testing reveals, however, is the need to carry the search beyond Bearn. But all the king’s envoys disappear without a trace, and deciding that desperate times call for desperate actions, a small band forms in secret to seek out the last possible heir. But can the king’s granddaughter, a knight in training, an appretice bard, a young and untested Renshai warrior, and thief who may as easily prove their betrayer as their friend survive the perils of the wild, and enemies equipped with magical powers in a world long bereft of spell casters? And if any of them actually reach their goal, can they bring the one remaining untested heir back to Bearn alive?

Praise

Praise for the Renshai Chronicles:
 
“Delightful fantasy, featuring sympathetic characters, magical battles galore, edge-of-seat suspense, and truly impressive worldbuilding. Complex, intricate, by turns challenging and rewarding, this is ultimately quite a satisfying fantasy reading experience.” —VOYA
 
“Reichert has the uncanny ability to sustain unremitting horror and suspense—for over 700 pages, mind…. Altogether magnificent. The tangled interrelationships, including a tangled romance, are as fascinating as her enthusiastic descriptions of bloody, bloody battles. Her mastery of military matters is quite incredible.” —Kliatt
 
“[Reichert’s] most ambitious and satisfying work to date.” —SF Chronicle
 
“Handled with literary skill and folkloric scholarship that further raises the level of suspense.” —Booklist
 
“[Reichert’s] best book to date and one of the best fantasy reads of the year…. Excellent high fantasy.” —South Bend Tribune
