Fifteen years have passed since the war to end all wars between the Galt Empire and the Khaiem left both sides as losers as the outcome is all Khaiem females are sterile the poet mages are dead along with their andat magic; while all Galt males were also sterilized (see AN AUTUMN WAR). Desperate the Khaiem Emperor Otah knows the hostilities must end before each nation becomes extinct with no next generation. With that in mind he seeks a political marriage of convenience between his offspring and that of a high ranking Galtish aristocrat. Meanwhile former poet Maati comes out of hiding, in an attempt at redeeming his soul for what he and his peers caused, breaks tradition to mentor young female students in summoning and controlling the andat essences. His top student Vanjit manages the andat Clarity-of-Sight, but though good intentions the remorseful Maati fails to understand the impact of the great war on survivors; instead of saving her people, the traumatized Vanjit who saw her loved ones massacred becomes a mad dictator. The final tale in the Long price Quartet saga takes a fantastic spin away from the three previous super but bloody and deadly seasons into a more personal thriller of individuals filled with contempt and guilt willing to pay THE PRICE OF SPRING to renew life. The story line is action-paved, but at a smaller scale yet much more complex as several people who directly caused the cataclysmic war seeks redemption for themselves though each knows they will never overcome what they caused. They also want to bring renewal for others. Daniel Abraham closes out the quartet with a terrific spring entry. Harriet Klausner

Tremendous end to the series, the end had me crying even though it wasn't from tradegy but from the sense of scope and the connection to the main characters. So glad I bought the first book that has now turned me into an Abrahams fan

The characters in these books are so memorable that I'll not forget them or their story anytime soon. Abraham has a strong and unique voice that deserves to be heard in the fantasy world. His work is original, and yet boast all of the important characteristics I demand from fantasy authors. Give him a try! If you liked this book, you might also like "Thief's Gamble" by Juliet E. McKenna, "Last Stormlord" by Glenda Larke, and "Assassin's Apprentice" by Robin Hobb!!

This is book four in a four volume series. As the final one it brings all the themes together from the previous books. Characters who were young in the first book are gray in the last. Each book covers a specific part of the whole story so you can stop at volume one and be satisfied with a complete story - but if you want to learn about how the character's lives turn out - you must read through each book. If you start the first book (A SHADOW IN SUMMER) you will want to read all four, I promise you. Very well written - exciting and touching. Get them all and keep them to reread in the future. (The second and third books are A BETRAYAL IN WINTER and AN AUTUMN WAR.)
