Vaelin Al Sorna must help his queen reclaim her Realm. Only his enemy has a dangerous new collaborator, one with powers darker than Vaelin has ever encountered... "The Ally is there, but only ever as a shadow, unexplained catastrophe or murder committed at the behest of a dark and vengeful spirit. Sorting truth from myth is often a fruitless task." After fighting back from the brink of death, Queen Lyrna is determined to repel the invading Volarian army and regain the independence of the Unified Realm. Except, to accomplish her goals, she must do more than rally her loyal supporters. She must align herself with forces she once found repugnant--those who possess the strange and varied gifts of the Dark--and take the war to her enemy's doorstep. Victory rests on the shoulders of Vaelin Al Sorna, now named Battle Lord of the Realm. However, his path is riddled with difficulties. For the Volarians have a new weapon on their side, one that Vaelin must destroy if the Realm is to prevail: a mysterious Ally with the ability to grant unnaturally long life to his servants. And defeating one who cannot be killed is a nearly impossible challenge, especially when Vaelin's blood-song, the mystical power that has made him the epic fighter he is, has gone ominously silent.

As someone who got a lot of enjoyment out of the world-building and character development of the first book, I must say the 3rd book was a mediocre conclusion to what could have been a memorable trilogy.

I found myself skimming through the numerous battle scenes because I felt like I'd read them already. Characters who were established and developed in the first two books now just complete a series of actions to get to the next plot point.

"We will make an ending, you and I." - Lastly, without giving spoilers, I felt the ending was a little anti-climactic, not just from an action perspective, but again from a character development standpoint. I do enjoy Anthony's writing style despite these setbacks and look forward to his next series.
