Bransen Garibond is tricked into a desperate war against the brutal Samhaist, Ancient Badden.

McMillan Palgrave
Searching for his long-lost father, Bransen Garibond is tricked into journeying across the Gulf of Corona to the wild lands of Vanguard, where he is pressed into service in a desperate war against the brutal Samhaist, Ancient Badden.

On an Alpinadoran lake, just below Ancient Badden's magical ice castle, several societies, caught in the web of their own conflicts, are oblivious to Ancient Badden's devastating plans to destroy them.

Bransen becomes the link between the wars, and if he fails, all who live on the lake will perish, and all of northern Honce will fall under the shadow of the merciless and vengeful Samhaists.

The Ancient is part of the Saga of the First King, a four-book series that chronicles the early days of Corona, the same world as Salvatore’s bestselling DemonWars saga.

I enjoyed this audiobook. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had started with "The Highwayman" which is the first book in the series instead of this one, which is the second. But, as with most of Salvatore's work he quickly catches the reader, or listener, up on what has happened previously.
