As the “gripping”* epic from the author of Sword of the North continues, the Grim Company must battle a dangerous new enemy that is determined to destroy all of humanity...
In the City of Towers, former rebel Sasha and her comrade Davarus Cole struggle to keep the peace between the warring mages who vie for dominion. But when the White Lady sends Davarus south to the Shattered Realms to seek allies among the fallen kingdoms, he finds that his hardest battle may be one fought within. The godly essence now residing within him offers power that could be used against the Fade—but with every death that feeds It, Cole risks losing a part of himself.
An association with a Fade officer grants the Halfmage Eremul a position of privilege among Dorminia’s new masters. He witnesses firsthand the fate that awaits humanity. But with his magic pitiful in the face of the Fade’s advanced technology, the Halfmage must rely on his wits alone to save whom he can…
And in the frozen north, the legendary warrior Brodar Kayne fights a desperate battle for his people. He is running out of time: an ancient evil sealed beneath the mountains is about to break free, an evil that is older than humanity, older than the Fade, older even than the gods—and it will not stop until the entire world is drowned in blood…

I burned through this series in less than 2 weeks because I just couldn’t put it down for long
I enjoyed the first book for the characters, especially the traits that defined them. The second book added factions that had their own traits and motives. This third book showed that though some of the characters had changed in unintended ways, they were still able to grow into something more or less, but they still had the traits that still made them who they were in the beginning. I think the trilogy was a damned good, and fun, read. I am sorry the story is done, and I hope it is just for now.
Best one so far
A great story, I loved most of the characters, less jumpy than the other two stories. I think the thing keeping it from a 5 star book, is that the ending is a bit rushed, and the ending itself.
An apt ending to a fantastic series. I will read all three books again!
