An ancient god-king stirs in his stony tomb and whispers in the ear of the winter king, "None but ye can set me free." Six years have passed since the druid Lyleth resurrected her king and won back his throne. Now, his murderous nephew, Talan, is king of the Five Quarters. But Talan wants more than the throne, he wants immortality, and Lyleth's six-year-old daughter can give it to him. For she is rumored to be the fabled "Child of Death" . . . and Lyleth will stop at nothing to get her daughter back. Six years have passed since Hugh Cavendish journeyed to the Five Quarters and returned to our world, broken. With Aunt Merryn nearing death, he must uncover the location of the third well and find his way back to the Five Quarters if he is to save his daughter. But the fate of both the living and the dead rest with the one who is both and neither. The Child of Death. ★★★★★ Beautifully written. Terry has once again made quite clear her love of language. I really enjoyed how carefully written this book is. It is completely possible to get immersed in the world she creates through her carefully crafted descriptions. - Ann Zerlaut ★★★★★ Fresh and Surprising Fantasy Series. I was anticipating the usual Druid or Fae novel and was pleasantly surprised by the series' turn. I've read fantasy for decades and the novel's linking of two worlds as it did was brilliant. I don't want to give any spoilers, but this is a well written mystery, love story, adventure and more! - Michalynn Farley ★★★★★ For fans of the dual worlds of Stephen R. Donaldson's The Land and Stephen King's The Talisman. Let's welcome Terry Madden's Five Quarters to the world just outside the one we live in. It has a spark of wonder, indeed. - Rusty Clark Grab your copy today! Free with Kindle Unlimited!
