The Hythrun Chronicles continued with The Wolfblade Trilogy including “Wolfblade” (Book 4, 2004), “Warrior” (Book 5, 2004), and “Warlord” (Book 6, 2005).
Don’t let the scope of this series detour you from jumping right in. Jennifer Fallon has a knack for epic fantasy storytelling and is just as competent in creating vivid characters with enough depth that readers will be able to pick up the adventure from the onset.
“The Lyre Thief” begins with a flurry of action as Fardohnya princess Rakaia agrees to wed an elder Hythrun person of noble birth with hopes to thwart her father’s fury after discovering the shocking news that she herself is not of royal blood. With the help of her BFF doppelganger handmaiden Charisee, a run in with assassins, a bard with a mysterious golden lyre medallion with magical ties and some overly intrusive powerful Gods, the adventure picks up with every turn of the page and never slows down.
A welcome return to the magical Hythrun Chronicles world created by the talented Jennifer Fallon, the complex epic fantasy “The Lyre Thief” is sure to appeal to new and returning fans.
