The gripping final volume of the Castings Trilogy, a sweeping fantasy set in a troubled land of warlords and outcasts, where the echoes of past atrocities taint the present. The road is long and the end is death. If we're lucky.
Saker the enchanter will stop at nothing to destroy the Eleven Domains, but has he unleashed a worse evil? As he builds his terrifying army of ghosts, screams from the nether world torment him, foretelling a greater disaster than he can imagine. When Ash is forced to acknowledge his true self in the caverns of the Deep, he realises that all power is duty-bound. He helps Bramble raise Acton's ghost, although plagued by doubts: Who is this ancient warrior - murderer or saviour? And will he help strangers protect a world he has never known?
Grieving an impossible love, Bramble learns the painful truth behind the demon's prophecy. She is a leader born but will she reach Turvite in time to face Saker and save the Domains?
