'A grand endeavour, replete with gripping characters and unafraid to plunge headlong into the Big Ideas surrounding good and evil, leadership, faith, and the murkiness of right and wrong ... with humour, authentic world-building and some of the finest writing of action I've ever read ... one of the coolest fantasy series to come along in an age.'

An army of darkness marches on the Shining Mines, stronghold of the light for a thousand years. At their head is the shadowmander, an unstoppable monster created from the souls of the dead.
A forgotten race stirs in Whisperwood, led by Corlas, who has been granted ancient powers by a banished god . . . and Fahren journeys with his old enemy Battu to the Morningbridge Peaks, where he is given a task that shakes him to the bones.
Meanwhile Bel rides with all the might of Kainordas behind him. He carries the Stone of Evenings Mild, his only means of drawing his counterpart Losara back into himself, thus making his soul complete. Prophecy says that a blue-haired man will end the war forever - and the time has come to look oneself in the eye.
The time has come for a reckoning.
'a great read for lovers of the genre. Story-telling of this calibre is rarely seen' Speculating on SpecFic
