The Mordant holds the Spider Queen's city in thrall, while his plots slither like tentacles across the southern kingdoms. Kath and her small band race to Pellanor, but the red comet is nearly set. Ancient magics clash as prophecies spawn unforeseen traps and twists. Darkness is poised for victory, daring the Light to risk all.

About the Author
Karen L Azinger has always loved fantasy fiction, and always hoped that someday she could give back to the genre a little of the joy that reading has always given her. Eleven years ago on a hike in the Columbia River Gorge she realized she had enough original ideas to finally write an epic fantasy. She started writing and never stopped. The Steel Queen was her first book, born from that hike in the gorge. The first six books of The Silk & Steel Saga, The Steel Queen, The Flame Priest, The Skeleton King, The Poison Priestess, The Knight Marshal, and The Prince Deceiver are published and getting great reviews. The final book of the saga, The Battle Immortal will be published in October 2015. Before writing, Karen spent over twenty years as an international business strategist, eventually becoming a vice-president for one of the world's largest natural resource companies. She's worked on developing the first gem-quality diamond mine in Canada's arctic, on coal seam gas power projects in Australia, and on petroleum projects around the world. Having lived in Australia for eight years she considers it to be her second home. She's also lived in Canada and spent a lot of time in the Canadian arctic. She lives with her husband in Portland Oregon, in a house perched on the edge of the forest.

Great ending to an epic story - I don’t write many reviews but this story is a gem. This seven book saga is the best new multi-book fantasy I have read in a long time – and, in this final book, The Battle Immortal, it actually ends, wrapping up the story in a satisfying and surprising way. This is a well-written story with imaginative world building, great characters, unforeseen plot twists, and point of views for both good and evil. There are many characters that I like, both good and evil (ummm – the Poison Priestess), major and minor (gotta like Bear), and though there are some heartbreaks, not everybody is killed off gratuitously. The story is a more a match of wits and courage, of one out-plotting another, rather than hinging on overwhelming magic or stupid decisions. So often fantasy falls short – magic is too powerful and then underused, characters do stupid things, or you just don’t like or care for any of the characters. Not with this story - which makes it such an enjoyable read. I actually went back and re-read the entire series, catching things planted in earlier books, inconsequential at the time, that blossomed into importance later on. The story hums along throughout the many books, each adding to the story rather than sidetracking. All in all, a great read, and if you haven’t read it, you are in for a real treat.
