Path of the Sun by Violette Malan

Title: Path of the Sun
Author: Violette Malan
Series: Dhulyn and Parno #4
Genre: Sword and sorcery, mercenaries, fantasy.
Setting: The isolated kingdom of Menoin.
Reason for Reading: I loved books one and three in the series.
Finished In: Weeks.
Pages: 374
Copyright Date: 2010
Cover: Another lovely CGI of our favorite mercenaries. Dhulyn's hair is shaved off to stubble, Parno is looking a little less naive. They stand in front of a maze.
First line: "Epion Arkarion waited until moonrise to travel the last portion of his journey back to the palace in Uraklios."
Best part: I liked the cliffhanger ending.
Worst part: It really dragged in the middle. Also, revealing the villain in the prologue is a little weird.
Grade: C
Recommended for: Fans of mercenary fantasty shouldn't miss it.
