Product Description

In the third book in the exciting The Binding of the Blade series, the rains fall and the floodwaters rise as Aljeron embarks on a dangerous quest across the forsaken land of Nolthanin. For all of Kirthanin, the days are dark and hope seems far away. And yet, in the midst of their darkness, a ray of light appears when Benjiah takes up Valzaan's staff and enters where all others fear to go.

Publisher's Description

Kirthanin unites to fight Malek’s forces. Aljeron journeys through snowy wasteland looking for the Father of Dragons. Rains continue, preparing the way for the shadow of the deep. The Binding of the Blade is an original fantasy series based in part on the prophesy from the book of Isaiah.

Author Bio

L. B. Graham (MDiv, Covenant Seminary) is chairman of the Bible department and teacher of English and Worldviews at Westminster Christian Academy in St. Louis. He has written several articles in IVPs Dictionary of Biblical Imagery. He and his wife, Joanne, have two children.

The forces of Malek are loose on Kirthanin. Black wolves, giants, and evil creatures created from the hand of Malek seek to conquer and destroy. The people of Kirthanin are threatened not only by Malek’s forces but by nature itself. Drenched in a constant, never-ceasing storm, the rivers rise and the oceans surge forth.
With the death of Allfather’s prophet Valzaan, a young prince and prophet-in-training named Benjiah is forced to take on the mantle of leadership. He declares a prophecy: that only the union of four races will conquer the evil upon the land. The quest becomes discovering the four races, and seeking their allegiance. No small task, especially with the impending battle.
As the threat to the people of Kirthanin increases, Aljeron, a mighty warrior, compelled by Valzaan’s dying wish, embarks on a quest across the forsaken snow-covered lands of Nolthanin, with his battle brother Koshi. Their struggle is linked to the rescue of the Kirthanin people.
L. B. Graham paints a complete picture of this fantastical world. Readers feel the pounding of the incessant rain, the cold of the snow covered mountains, and the tumble of the storm tossed sea. They see the advance of the malicious army, the magnificence of the golden dragons, and the destruction wrought. This carefully crafted world is one which the author knows intimately, thus helping the reader to step easily into it.
Graham deftly handles a large cadre of characters, bringing each to life with distinct characteristics. He provides the reader with a deep understanding of the character’s motives and emotions, while he moves the story forward.
To fully enjoy the world and story created by L. B. Graham, I recommend starting with book one of this series titled Binding the Blade. However, if you have read both book one, Beyond the Summerland, and book two, Bringer of Storms, you are sure to enjoy the continued fight of the people of Kirthanin against the forces of Malek, in book three, Shadow in the Deep. – Vasthi Acosta, Christian Book

Editorial Reviews

Even for those readers who do not particularly care for fantasy, this book is sufficiently fresh and exciting that most will find it engrossing. This is well worth reading.
L. B. Graham has done a great job in creating an interesting world and story line that many readers will be anxious to read more about.
In the field of fantasy literature, many novels seek to emulate Tolkien’s style, but few actually approach the immersive, epic potential of fantasy as well as L. B. Graham ‘s Beyond the Summerland. . . . Richness in world-building and depth of characters make this novel one that will please fantasy readers.

    After the fall of Valzaan on the beach of Col Marena, the army flees Wethanin by ship, hoping to find aid in Suthanin. But Aljeron must follow a different path. Bound by a promise to Valzaan, he sets off on a quest across the wilds of Nolthanin in hope of awaking the legendary Sulmandir, Father of Dragons. But the cold and beasts arent his only enemies. Synoki, the secretive castaway from the first book, shows up with a friend who claims to have traveled in Nolthanin before. Can they be trusted?While traveling, Benjaih is invited to the Tarlindraal, where he receives a vision from Allfather calling for the union of four great peoples. Who are they, and can the army hold out until then? Readers of the first two books may be expecting a dramatic ending, but Graham raises the bar by having TWO shocking cliffhangers. Who is the man in the golden cloak? And what will happen as the army crosses the Kalamin?

    Shadow in the Deep is a great third book to the Binding of the Blade series. I think it's cool that Aljeron is journeying to find Sulmandir and when I read the last chapter I couldn't wait to read the next one!!!

    Once again this third book in the series is just as good as the first two. They are all filled with suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat and each book ends with a startling event. So I suggest that you read all three and then wait impatiently for fourth one like me.
