What was once the Peradaini Empire is now a wasted landscape of burned, empty cities and abandoned farmlands. The Blessing, now more numerous than ever, continues to spread across the continent, driving refugees to the dubious safety of the city walls. Unharvested crops mean that few strongholds have enough provisions to last the winter, although most know the grunts will take them before starvation will.
But hope survives. A piece of stolen magic just might halt the spread of The Blessing if Tejohn and Cazia can find a scholar with the skill to re-create the spell. If such a person still lives.
Unfortunately they are nearly out of time. The few remaining human enclaves are isolated and under siege. Worse, The Blessing has spread to other sentient creatures. If Cazia and Tejohn are going to strike back at their monstrous enemy, they cannot delay.
And there's another deeper question left unaddressed: Where did The Blessing come from, and why have they invaded Kal-Maddum?

Both interesting and exciting through the end
SOS: Somebody help this author with his endings.
Yes because the magic system and overall plot are exciting and interesting.
When what the Great Way is revealed to be.
Yes, he does a good job here. I don't think I have heard him do a bad performance yet.
When Cazia meets her father for the first time.
The ending couple hours are really lousy. There are many shocking revelations, one after another, and they are left dangling at the end. The first two books do not have satisfying endings either but this is the last book of the trilogy! I expected the author to close all the open plot threads from the previous books and give a reasonable, satisfying conclusion. If that is what you expect at the end of a trilogy, prepare for disappointment.
With the ending as the exception, the journey there is a good time. I don't think that having a lousy ending makes it a lousy book by any means. This book is worth the credit.
