Publisher's Summary

The light fades. The darkness comes.

Alesh and his companions managed to survive Aldrick’s betrayal, defeating the nightlings and driving them back out of the city, but their troubles are just beginning. For there are other traitors in their midst, hiding in the shadows, and while they should be preparing for the approaching enemy army, Alesh and the others are forced to scour the city in search of them.

Meanwhile, Sonya and the Broken flee the enemy encampment, hounded by Argush’s soldiers. But Sonya is just a child, the Broken is wounded, and their hunters are closing in. Yet, the soldiers are not their biggest worry, for night is coming and, with it, creatures of darkness, hungry for blood.

As the number of prisoners in the city increases, threatening to overflow the dungeons, Alesh, as its leader, will be forced to make hard decisions. Decisions, which will weaken his faith not just in the gods, but in himself. And to make matters worse, as the army gathers outside the city, Alesh will discover that his powers have abandoned him when he needs them most.

Valeria, the last light which stands against the coming night, falters. Darkness stretches its talons toward the city and its people, toward Alesh and the other Chosen. Should they fall, the world will fall with them.

The final battle for Valeria, for the world has begun.

okay but filler

love the series and will finish it soon. This one was well narrated and well written, though obviously it's filler. To be fair the next book is set up pretty damn well through it though.

Good book that picked up the pace of the series

Throughout the series I have felt that alot of the set up is waisted. In this book I felt much the same however as the story went on it started to draw together nicely. If you like books that are good vs evil where the line is sometimes hard to find, you will enjoy this book.

Kathryn is so annoying

I can’t stand her. Supposed to be a chosen of the gods but weak as a wet paper bag. And how is it that only one of the chosen is shown any respect.
