Now in paperback! The climactic volume of the epic quartet follows the Bards of Edil-Amarandh on a vital quest to merge their powers against a nameless evil.
In a battle-ravaged land, Maerad, Cadvan, and Hem desperately search for one another as they make their separate journeys. The Black Army is advancing, and all of the Seven Kingdoms are threatened with devastating defeat. Yet in Maerad and Hem lives the secret to the mysterious Singing, and legend holds that if they release the music of Elidhu together, they have the power to defeat the Nameless One. Can brother and sister find each other in time—and are they strong enough, even reunited—to defeat the supreme enemy before all is lost?
"Sonorous motifs and resonant archetypes form the backbone of this series conclusion. . . . Croggon creates a sense of unease as the climax builds." — Kirkus Reviews – Starred review
