With the death of Allfathers 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 Valzaans 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 characters 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.

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 Tolkiens 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.
Julie Dick4 Stars Out Of 5October 8, 2008Julie DickAfter 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?
Makaidos5 Stars Out Of 5August 16, 2008MakaidosShadow 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!!!
Wilson5 Stars Out Of 5August 7, 2008WilsonThe third book in the series is awesome if not better then the first two books. I highly recomend this book to anyone who likes fantasy books.
Avery5 Stars Out Of 5June 29, 2007AveryOnce 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.
