In this last book of the trilogy, Roan discovers much more about who he and Stowe really are as a great deal of the history of the conflict between Roan of the Parting (his great-grandfather) and Darius is revealed, along with a closer look at the connection between the white crickets and Mabatan’s people (the Wazya), and the history and nature of the Apsara.
Roan knows there will be no future without defeating Darius. In order to do it, he’ll have to draw these small pockets of survivors together and attempt to make peace with the Brothers and the Hhroxhi. But perhaps an even greater challenge is how he’ll accomplish the task with the least amount of bloodshed. For Roan can never forget where he comes from.

“The three books communicate many important messages about the human condition including the importance of believing in oneself, of working together and sometimes sacrificing oneself for the greater good, of valuing friendships and allegiances, and of accepting responsibility for the consequences of our actions. Recommended.”
