“A wonderfully satisfying magical saga.”—Publishers Weekly
In a pursuit that spans continents, Iolanthe, Titus, and their friends have always managed to remain one step ahead of the forces of Atlantis. But now the Bane, the monstrous tyrant who bestrides the entire mage world, has issued his ultimatum: Titus must hand over Iolanthe, or watch as his entire realm is destroyed in a deadly rampage.
Running out of time and options, Iolanthe and Titus decide to act immediately and deliver a final blow to the Bane. Getting to the Bane means accomplishing the impossible: finding a way to infiltrate his crypt in most ferociously guarded fortress in Atlantis. But new prophecies come to light, foretelling a doomed effort...
Iolanthe and Titus will put their love and their lives on the line. But will it be enough?
In this magical epic fantasy adventure, Sherry Thomas has created a fast-paced, intricately woven plot, a simmering romance, and a pair of remarkable protagonists who will stay with you long after you have reached the last page.
Sequel to The Burning Sky and The Perilous Sea.
