The Wanderersby Paula Brandon
Synopses & Reviews
Paula Brandon’s acclaimed fantasy trilogy comes to a triumphant conclusion in an unforgettable collision of magic, intrigue, and romance.
Time is running out. Falaste Rione is imprisoned, sentenced to death. And even though the magical balance of the Source is slipping and the fabric of reality itself has begun to tear, Jianna Belandor can think only of freeing the man she loves. But to do so, she must join a revolution she once despised—and risk reunion with a husband she has ample reason to fear.
Meanwhile, undead creatures terrorize the land, slaves of the Overmind—a relentless consciousness determined to bring everything that lives under its sway. All that stands in the way is a motley group of arcanists whose combined powers will barely suffice to restore balance to the Source. But when Jianna’s father, the Magnifico Aureste Belandor, murders one of them, the group begins to fracture under the pressures of suspicion and mutual hatred. Now humanity’s hope rests with an unexpected soul: a misanthropic hermit whose next move may turn the tide and save the world.
“[An] ambitiously creative story . . . Brandon’s character development is exceptional, as is her ability to interweave numerous story lines into a briskly paced narrative. . . . Fantasy and romance fans looking for something unusual will find this amalgamation wildly entertaining.”—Publishers Weekly, on The Ruined City
"The final volume of Brandon's genre-fusing trilogy (after The Traitor's Daughter and The Ruined City) concludes in grand style. Jianna Belandor's beloved, the altruistic physician Falaste Rione, has been imprisoned and sentenced to death. Jianna embarks on a desperate mission to free him as the increasingly unstable magical wellspring known as the Source threatens to destroy every living creature on the Veiled Isles. As the world becomes more surreal — hordes of undead Wanderers, 'devoid of memory, intellect, emotion,' are appearing everywhere, while amphibious humanoid Sishmindris begin a revolt against the oppressive human regime — Jianna's father, accompanied by a dysfunctional group of arcanists, sets off on a quest to somehow cleanse the Source before it's too late. The audacious fusion of fantasy, romance, and zombie fiction combines with Brandon's exceptional character development in a highly imaginative, action-packed narrative that provides tremendous fun and escapism, lacking only an adventurous ending."
