Sometimes the only way to win a war is to wage an unwinnable battle.
The Eleusis has escalated in intensity, when the minor heirs of three kingdoms, including Tamsen’s, vanish from their homes. In order to find them, Tamsen and Brial must find the way to the dream realm where once the dead god Phobetor ruled alongside his brothers. Before long, they must lead an army of living souls to defend the realm of the dead from elder gods, overthrown millennia ago by the current ruling pantheon. With all five realms now in conflict, the situation is deteriorating fast. The mortal realm cannot survive a full-out war between the gods. For Tamsen, a succession of personal tragedies is beginning to take its toll, amplified by the destruction of her strength and the desperation of her task.
Can she find another ally to bolster her quest? Or will she fail into the enemy’s trap alone?
