Publisher Description


Acclaimed author Elizabeth Moon spins gripping, richly imagined epic fantasy novels that have earned comparisons to the work of such authors as Robin Hobb and Lois McMaster Bujold. In this volume, Moon’s brilliant masterwork reaches its triumphant conclusion.
The mysterious reappearance of magery throughout the land has been met with suspicion, fear, and violence. In the kingdom of Lyonya, Kieri, the half-elven, half-human king, struggles to balance the competing demands of his heritage while fighting a deadly threat to his rule: evil elves linked in some way to the rebirth of magic.
Meanwhile, in the neighboring kingdom of Tsaia, a set of ancient artifacts recovered by the former mercenary Dorrin Verrakai may hold the answer to the riddle of magery’s return. Thus Dorrin embarks on a dangerous quest to return these relics of a bygone age to their all-but-mythical place of origin. What she encounters there will change her in unimaginable ways—and spell doom or salvation for the entire world.

Kabaker55 ,

An excellent end to the series.

The title makes sense once you have read the book. It also makes sense in how the book ends Dorrin's story. It completes things and leaves you with a feeling of peace and serenity, for yourself as well as the characters in the book.

As we have seen Gird's time and then Paks time, I hope we see another time in the future beyond this period. One where all of these characters are legends in thier own right, yet the realms have a new challenge and new characters.

This fantasy world is one that rivals J.R.R. Tolkien's in Lord of the Rings. One that will remain permanently on my new eBookshelf for a long time to come and be reread again, and again.

A Winner as Always.

Per usual, Madame Moon, has another winner. This world as rich with life as any Potter novel, still pulls emotions, and leaves me clambering for more. The Characters are so real, they really feel like they should be people you know. The descriptions so vivid, you can taste the dust and horse sweat, like you are riding in the novel. Please do not let this be the last visit to this world, please.
