A millennia-old prophecy was given when the Forbidden Ones were driven from Achar. And now, the Acharites witness its manifestation: Achar is under attack by an evil lord from the North, Gorgreal-his ice demons strike from the sky and kill hundreds of brave warriors in the blink of an eye.

All Acharites believe the end is near.

One young woman, Faraday, betrothed of Duke Borneheld, learns that all she has been told about her people's history is untrue. While fleeing to safety from the dangerous land, Faraday, rides with Axis, legendary leader of the Axe-Wielders-and hated half-brother of Borneheld-and a man Faraday secretly loves although it would be death to admit it. She embarks on a journey, which will change her life forever, in search of the true nature of her people.

This grand and heroic story tells the tale of one woman's plight to learn the truth of her people and change their hearts and their minds forever. She fights against oppressive forces to share this reality and will not desist until everyone knows. . . . . The truth of the Star Gate

I read the Axis trilogy in my teens and loved it! Would I enjoy it now if I read it again? Probably, there's just too many other books to get to...

THANK YOU for including this book in your list! I read this a few years ago, but I still remember the experience, as it was so utterly unpleasant. It started out well enough, and then went so far downhill that it was heading for the solid core of our lovely planet. An example of the bad: the main character has a female love interest but of course they can't be together (for some reason she had to sacrifice herself and marry some other guy first). Being the wonderful man he is, the main character understands her sacrifice and will wait for her. Of course, by the time she is free he has impregnated another woman and opts to publicly humiliate and berate a woman who had sacrificed herself for his cause (and whom he had claimed to love). As a woman myself, I was surprised that this level of misogyny was written by a woman. Go figure.
