The Great War has ended, and the Renshai have won back Fields of Wrath. As the survivors limp homeward, wounded in body and spirit, craving only the mundane comforts of home, Tae Kahn becomes ever more certain that a far larger and fiercer wave of enemy soldiers is headed toward them.
One Kjempemagiska and an army of their man-sized servants nearly defeated the entirety of the Continent. This time, Tae is certain, the ranks will include hundreds of the strong, magical, Island-dwelling giants. The only hope for the peoples of the Continent is to remuster their war-weary troops and find a way to convince the few magical beings of their own world to assist them.
“The Last of the Renshai is rich in incident, action, and folkloric expertise ... above-average worldbuilding.”
“The Renshai Chronicles had an interesting basis in Nordic myth and legend, and the Renshai were exciting warriors out of legend.”
“[Reichert] draws her characters realistically and uses the wizards believably. She has created a very real world.... Readers who love sword-and-war-type fantasy will keep turning the pages, spellbound.”
“A master’s touch for provoking curiosity from the reader and drawing dynamic characters.”
“Slashing swordplay, a telepathic cat, spirit-sucking spiders, dizzying genealogical complications, and three warrior brothers all lend depth and sparkle to Reicher’s latest installment of her immense Renshai Chronicles saga.... Reichert’s handsomely fleshed-out world and animated characters make her latest book an entertaining and philosophical journey with glimmers of sorcery from mages and elves that foreshadow further Renshai adventures.”
“Very strong.... There are wonderful elements that make this novel special.... It’s an excellent read.”
