Monstrous armies march. Foul powers from the past rise......... In Druintir, ancient city of the Fiannar, a dashing young Ambassador from the Erelian Republic finds himself embroiled in both the preparations for war and the fiery heart of a beautiful Fiannian Shield Maiden. From Druintir three legendary heroes are selected and sent on a final desperate quest of destruction. Upon Druintir marches the torrential tide of the Blood Kings army- at its head the horrid demonic creatures called Waif and Urchin, the formidable Halflord and his indomitable Bloodspawn........ Beneath banners bright and beautiful, and aided by allies old and new, the doughty yet dwindled Fiannar ready for a war they know may very well be their last.......... Drawing from history, mythology, philosophy and theology, the story is exquisitely layered, extremely well-written, with strong plot, sub-plot and character developments. Humour, horror and heroism abound, and the places, people and relationships are compellingly believable and captivating. Comparisons to classics like Lord of the Rings and to modern popular fantasy epics such as The Malazan Book of the Fallen are inevitable, but the author has certainly carved his own distinct niche between the two with his unique style and fearless deviation from the standard tried and true formulaic fantasy tale.
