(If you’re unfamiliar with this series, you may want to check out my review of book two, Warriors of Balance.)
Not only are the Vardikhar closing in on the enemies of the Hall, but their enemies are starting to hit them where it hurts. The plot moves a little faster, and the intrigue is more intense. There’s a lot more action in this one, and the stakes are higher than ever before. Earlyan really comes into his own in Order of the Ancestors, both as a warrior and a man. We also gain a little more insight into Doc’s past, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people will be caught off guard by what they learn.
This book is exciting in its own right, but it also promises great things to come in the fourth, and last book of this series. I’m itching to read it already.

Order of the Ancestors Blurb:
The Selected have discovered the identity of the parties behind the strike at Air Force Base One in Niemadar. As the Vardikhar begin their search for the mysterious Order of the Ancestors, a military aircraft goes missing unexpectedly, filled with a cargo so sensitive that it might just tip the scales of the imminent War of Balance in favor of the enemies of the Hall if not recovered soon.
In the underwater city of Aqualurbia, Earlyan Marnes is determined to see his first mission as a Tuladhvan fulfilled at all costs. Little does he know the steep price that he may have to pay for his pride, his arrogance, and his desire for retribution.
Kalther Janasen is torn between his loyalty to the Order of the Ancestors and his desires. The young Wraith Knight struggles mightily with his thoughts, trying to decide on whether he should trust in Earlyan Marnes, or to continue to rely in the guidance of his Stones, the teachings of the Matriarch, and the will of the Ancestors.
Far away from the shores of the Water Continent of Asropia, a deadly Hunter continues on her quest for vengeance, seeking to leave her painful past behind. As the Hunter keeps growing stronger, bolder, and more experienced, she finds an unexpected but very valuable asset that could provide her with a great advantage over those who wronged her.
Silena Draksas is ready to set her plans in motion. As the young Head of Draksas sows the seeds of chaos and terror, the Dream reveals the location of two valuable prizes. Patient Lenny is also close to discovering the hideout of the Order of the Ancestors: the small ecologic community standing in the heart of the jungle halfway across the world.
The struggle for Balance in Akaladia continues in The Order of the Ancestors, book three in the thrilling saga of The Keeper of the Balance.
