That's an amazing quality that makes you want to read one more page, one more chapter. This lovely book has events and descriptions that make the reader become invested in the characters and, thus, the story. I can't wait for the next book!" — Clairey Reads (Coventry, England)

• 4/5 Stars — "Kilpack does it again with Order of Light. Following on Crown Prince, we learn more about Ellis and Natharr as they find sympathisers in a supposedly sleepy village who have been under the careful watch of the garrison for years. Behind closed doors, there is a different story to tell. A great fantasy book with all the world-building you'd expect." — Books with Gina (England)

The future of Mankind relies on the Guardian of Maarihk. Can a mysterious Order help him repair the damage of choosing happiness over duty?

Despite the Guardian of Maarihk being condemned as anathema, and his very existence relegated to legend, Natharr resumes his ancient responsibilities as Mankind's protector. He joins with a mysterious Firstborn companion, Ellis the Elder, to journey into the snow reaches of Biraald, where his Sight promises he will find those who secretly adhere to the ways of the Olde Gods.

Although Biraaldi bloodlines show their Firstborn heritage more clearly than even in Maarihk itself, the two nations have never enjoyed peace. It has been far worse since the rise of Brandt the Usurper to Maarihk's throne. Natharr and Ellis must navigate the threats not only against the Firstborn, but the Maarihkish, as they seek out the sympathizers he Saw who are brave enough to resist Maarihk's tyranny. Only then can the damage be repaired from when Natharr chose personal happiness with Darshelle and the young crown prince over his weighty responsibilities as Guardian of Maarihk.
