Overview

The ancient god Loki has been set free from the chains which bound him for centuries, and free to wreak terrible revenge. As Edmund and Elspeth desperately search for him, the fire and destruction they expect is nowhere to be seen. They discover instead strange emblems carved along the route south. Traveling ever closer toward the war between the Visigoths and the English, Edmond and Elspeth feel they are being drawn into a trap. But with the help of their friends, and faith in themselves they will face Loki one last time, at an ancient circle of stones that may be their last hope to defeat the terrible trickster.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
In this conclusion to the "Darkest Age" trilogy, Edmund and Elspeth begin their search for the evil Loki. There are many who accompany them, also wanting to end Loki's terror, but instead of discovering a trail of destruction, they encounter a young boy who proves surprisingly valuable to their quest. Should they trust him? Edmund is convinced his father will help them as well, but some of his friends are doubtful. Edmund is captured, but it turns out his captors serve a familiar king. When he finds his father, Edmund discovers his father has a very specific request for him. Can he fulfill his father's desires, serve his people, and help Elspeth in her journey? When Elspeth is injured, will she be able to continue? Should Edmund stay with her or go ahead and search for Loki? The writing and multiple story lines are very complex, making this book more appropriate for the older end of the age range, and perhaps even appealing to older readers.
