The Shadow Lord rises again seeking a weapon of ultimate power.

Peter Stewart is a dead ringer for the legendary King Arthur, and because of that, everyone in Carlion believes that he is the Child of the Prophecy, destined to destroy the Shadow Lord. But Peter doesn’t want to be a hero; all he wants to be is left alone.

Lily Portman also fits the prophecy. Having spent her entire life as an orphan and a misfit, Lily would love nothing more than to be the Child of the Prophecy, so she envies Peter…but she’s also developing a crush on him. And it seems to her that he couldn’t care less.

Isdemus and the Watchers believe that it is only a matter of time before Peter’s twin brother Kane betrays them all and frees the Shadow Lord. The winner of the war to come depends on who has the legendary Philosopher’s Stone – the only problem is, it has been lost since the days of Arthur. With the help of a skeptical anthropologist, the Watchers attempt to decode the ancient treasure maps that lead them to the heart of Egypt and the dawn of time. Meanwhile, Lily and Peter discover that Peter holds the real key to the mystery…but will they be too late?

She lives with her husband, with whom she maintains a facetiously contentious movie review blog, and travels as often as they can get away. When not writing or seeing patients, she does yoga, drinks red wine while eating dark chocolate, and consumes audiobooks like there’s no tomorrow!

Now, that’s the story I was hoping for! While it’s often the second book that struggles, in this one I felt that the first book could have been better, but this one makes it all worth it! While I enjoyed the first book, it was a bit chaotic at times, and this one is where things finally start to make sense, and fit together. I enjoyed the characters more, the plot flowed smoothly, and the writing was well done.

While I’m not a fan of changing narrators for each book if not absolutely necessary, Melissa does a wonderful job picking up this series. I really enjoyed listen to her as she brought the story to life with character accents and emotion added as she read.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by C.A. Gray. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
