Product Description

The dreadful Goths have invaded Rockval, testing the strength of Bitterland's beautiful, widowed ruler. Meanwhile, the Barlow brothers are growing stronger in their powers-all except for Ewan, who traded his gift away to save the life of his friends.
Soon it becomes clear that the Goths are the least of their worries. A terrible machine is being built high atop Mount Vishgar, above Rockval, where the raging winds never cease. If the machine really does release the Song of Unmaking, what will happen? Can Arthur lay aside his grief and once more become a great leader of men? And what is the mysterious Doorless Tower, Nein Dyrr?

Publisher's Description

IN THE BITTER NORTH, HOPE AND FEAR COLLIDE.

    The dreadful Goths have invaded Röckval, testing the strength of Bitterland’s beautiful, widowed ruler. Meanwhile, the Barlow brothers are growing stronger and stronger in their powers—all except for Ewan, who traded his gift away to save the life of his friends.
    Soon it becomes clear that the Goths are the least of their worries. A terrible machine is being built high atop Mount Vishgar, above Röckval, where the raging winds never cease. If the machine really does release the Song of Unmaking, what will happen? Can Arthur lay aside his grief and once more become a great leader of men? And what is the mysterious Doorless Tower, Nein Dyrr?
    As Kr’Nunos grows more bold, the Barlow brothers take their stand with the viks of the north. Yet it is Ewan alone who must answer the question: Is any music stronger than the most powerful song of destruction the world has ever known?

Author Bio

Dean Barkley Briggs is an author, father of eight, and prone to twisting his ankle playing basketball. He grew up reading J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lews, Patricia McKillip, Guy Gavriel Kay, Stephen R. Donaldson, Ursila K. Leguin, Susan Cooper, Madeline L’Engle, Terry Brooks, Andre Norton and Lloyd Alexander (just to name a few)...and generally thinks most fantasy fiction pales in comparison. (Yes, he dabbled in sci-fi, too. Most notably Bradbury, Burroughs and Heinlein).

After losing his wife of 16 years, Briggs decided to tell a tale his four sons could relate to in their own journey through loss. Thus was born The Legends of Karac Tor, a sweeping adventure of four brothers who become enmeshed in the crisis of another world. Along the way they must find their courage, battle against overwhelming odds, face their pain, and never quit searching for home.

In God’s timing, beauty and joy arose from the ashes of loss. Briggs remarried a lovely redhead named Jeanie, who previously lost her husband in an auto accident. Together with her four children, their hands are quite full.

The Song of Unmaking is the third book in the Legends of Karac Tor series by D. Barkley Briggs, and follows four young brothers cast away from their father into a fantastic alternate world. The brothers must learn to use the magical Songs they have each been gifted with so that they can stop the nefarious sorceress Nemesia from destroying Karac Tor. The brothers must learn the pain, and the value, of sacrifice and the importance of unity and love in the face of evil's seemingly irresistible power.

The book follows many different characters and may seem disjointed to those who have not read the previous books. The large cast provides an interesting array of characters, but sometimes at the cost of depth. However, in the conclusion, everything ties together in a satisfying resolution that appeals to the majesty of God's creative capability.

Ewan is the brother followed most. He sacrificed his Song to protect his family and is now struggling with normality as his brothers grow in their magical abilities. Through the story he regains confidence, and is the one who ultimately ushers in victory.

Being more sensitive to people than his brothers, Ewan is able to make vital connections with the other characters. This role of friend and supporter turns out to be more beneficial than having his Song could ever have been.

An adventurous romp into an imaginative world, The Song of Unmaking provides a main character who demonstrates the ideal of John 15:13, "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." Any child with a head in the clouds would enjoy this book, though it is recommended that he or she begin with the first installment in the series, The Book of Names. – Kyle Carruthers, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
