Azdrefel is once again imprisoned in the infinite void of the Everdark, but before anyone can celebrate victory his high priest engulfs an unprepared kingdom of Oestrand in a war it can’t hope to win. With its king hidden in the Sorcerer’s Tower, the land falls under the savage and bloody hand of the Servants.
But Hasdrugon isn’t content to rule. He wants vengeance on those who sent his god into exile, and there are traitors who are only too willing to help him.
In the conclusion of the Everdark Wars trilogy, Perian Dawnstar and Randrick alt Harbinnen are left with a task incomplete and an implacable enemy whose plans for them would make nightmares seem pleasant.
