Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Noble Dead series has been hailed as “a crowd-pleasing mix of intrigue, epic fantasy, and horror.”* Now, national bestselling authors Barb and J.C. Hendee present the latest thrilling novel following the adventures of dhampir Magiere and half-elf Leesil…

Barely escaping the city of Calm Seatt—and the assassins hunting them—Magiere, Leesil, and the elven dog Chap sail south to continue their quest to find the powerful Orb of Air before their enemies do. But they are not alone, much to their frustration.

The aging elven assassin Brot’an has forced himself on them by offering his protection. Chap doesn’t believe this ruse, however, and seeks to uncover the assassin’s true agenda—as well as the cause of the secret civil war that has erupted into the open among Brot'an's people.

Meanwhile, Magiere struggles with her own dark nature, using Leesil’s love as an anchor to keep her grounded. For the personal price she paid to procure the Orb of Fire was more than she thought—and more than she wants to reveal to anyone.

But that is exactly what the cunning Brot’an wants to know. And he is willing to do whatever it takes—even if he must reveal his own dreaded secrets that may cost the entire party their lives…and their very souls.

*Publishers Weekly

Oleofox, September 4, 2013 (view all comments by Oleofox)
Excellent continuation of the series. I really love how much detail the authors add to the story line. It makes picturing the world in which the story takes place very real. This book was very interesting to me as I always wondered about Brot'an and his reasons for coming along with Magiere, Lessel and Chap. This book supplied some of his reasons along with much more. There is still much to learn about the characters and I can't wait for the next book in this series. In some cases when a series gets into its 11th book things tend to die down and I sometimes lose interest; but that has yet to happen with this series. Definitely one that I would recommend to people who like well thought out and detailed worlds.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review

I'm a NOBLE DEAD SAGA groupie. I won't deny it. Since discovering the Hendees and this series in the 90's I eagerly await each and every release. When I got an Advance Reader Copy of Dog in the Dark I was beyond thrilled.

Despite the length, I absolutely devoured it, and immediately upon finishing, knew that 5 Skulls wasn't enough for this book. I have loved this Saga from book one, and the first trilogy was astonishing, but this is my absolute favorite of the Saga thus far - so full of emotion, secrets, action, intrigue, & intensity. It was absolutely incredible!

Our band of misfits is once again broken into 2 distinct groups, each with some unlikely players. The Dog in the Dark focuses on Magiere, Leesil, Chap, Bro'tan and Leanalham and their journey back to where Wynn just came from.

Not only is the journey itself intense, each is dealing with their own inner demons, paranoia, mistrust, etc. Magiere is consistently getting darker and darker and it has Chap and Leesil completely worried. Noboby really trusts Bro'tan because he's always only out for what he wants, and yet they need him. Leanalham has lost pretty much everyone close to her and is still struggling with trying to fit in...anywhere.

The Hendees write this beautifully as a mix of real time action and flashbacks to the things we didn't get to see when we were following Wynn in the 2nd series of the Saga. It makes for intense and gripping reading and illuminates so many things.

The last couple pages before the Epilogue literally gave me goosebumps, & the last couple pages as an intro to the next book had me squealing with anticipation.

Barb and JC are an amazing artistic duo, and I am so happy to be enjoying this journey that they have set up for us all.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Dog in the Dark 5 Skulls and would highly recommend it to all Fantasy and Urban Fantasy lovers. I strongly suggest reading the entire saga however...
