The spectacular conclusion to the New York Times bestselling RAVEN'S SHADOW series, which began with the critically acclaimed BLOOD SONG
QUEEN OF FIRE is the spectacular conclusion to the internationally bestselling RAVEN'S SHADOW series - a powerful tale of desperate battles, deadly politics and epic adventure. EMPIRES WILL FALL
Queen Lyrna has survived the bloody siege of Alltor. Now she must rally her troops and take back the capital from the Volarian invaders. But driving her hated enemy out of the Realm will not satisfy her lust for vengeance - she wants to pursue them across the ocean and burn their empire to ashes. To do so, she must place her faith in the Seventh Order: men and women who wield terrible powers, born of the Dark itself.
Vaelin Al Sorna would sacrifice his life for his queen - and may yet have to. Only by unmasking the Volarians' mysterious Ally can the tide of war be turned. To this end, Vaelin must travel deep into the icebound north, in search of a man who cannot die - and he must do it without the aid of his blood song, which has fallen ominously silent . . .
