The exciting conclusion to The Lays of Anuskaya trilogy!
Nearly two years after the harrowing events of The Straits of Galahesh, Atiana and Nikandr continue their long search for Nasim. The clues they find lead them to the desert wastes of the Gaji, where the fabled valley of Shadam Khoreh lies.
But all is not well.
War has moved from the islands to the mainland, and the Grand Duchy knows its time may be limited if Yrstanla rallies its forces. Worse, the wasting disease and the rifts grow ever wider, threatening places that once thought themselves safe. The dukes believe that their only hope may be to treat with the Haelish warriors to the west of Yrstanla, but Nikandr knows that the key is to find Nasim and a lost artifact known as the Atalayina. Will Nikandr succeed and close the rifts once and for all? The answer lies deep within the flames of Shadam Khoreh.

A powerful conclusion to an impressive trilogy. Beaulieu has a refined talent with language, impressive plotting, and weaves huge amounts of texture and cultural nuance into the series. If you haven't read The Lays of Anuskaya (beginning with The Winds of Khalakovo and continuing with The Straits of Galahesh, concluding with this novel), grab all three and prepare for a rich, thorough journey through a beautifully-realized wrought by the hands of a rising star of the Fantasy genre.
“Flames” is a gripping and satisfying end to a great epic fantasy trilogy. Bradley P. Beaulieu takes you back into a world full of multiple rich cultures, characters, and magic. I looked forward to this final novel, and was not disappointed.
