Overview

‘Blake excels at world-building, and his book is so detailed in so many areas that he either conducted an astounding amount of research...or he knows lots more than the average person.”Kate Norlander, author of Geek Culture

The Vastness is the third and final omnibus collection to the Vesteal Series. The Vastness takes us deep into the capital of Bessradi, following the chaos of Native Silver, where new magic is emerging. A girl who lives inside her head with numbers becomes the center of a vast rebellion, while far to the north the people of Enhedu are scattered, their keep in ruins. Ghosts stir, the ground shakes, and an unknown magic has been unleashed. A desperate mission to the frozen edge of the world must be mounted in order to rescue Enhedu’s stolen children while the war for Zoviya tears down families, provinces, and religions.
Blood becomes as important as air, and our characters struggle to keep the world balanced.
The ending to this epic fantasy series is full of surprise and intrigue.
In the end, the war will be over, but which side will win?

"It reminds me a bit of Tolkien, so for those that love fantasy and an in depth story this book is a must read.”Fleur, Goodreads
