As the Demon Lord Shadow Wing creates his own sinister version of the Keraastar Knights—the guardians of the spirit seals—to destroy the portals and free himself from the Sub Realms, his ally, the necromancer Telazhar, leads an assault from Otherworld into the streets of Seattle. And my sisters and I are caught dead center.
Then, on the eve of war, my wife, Nerissa, is captured. The enemy demands we surrender the rest of the spirit seals, or they are going to kill her. I will do anything to save her. Even if it means leading an army of vampires into the very depths of the Subterranean Realms...
I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be a conclusion or a cliff hanger? I think I'm gonna have to re-read the last few books to recall where I left off with this series because I was left hanging several times with a giant question mark. Granted I got into this series half way through I don't think I'm the only one who will be left a tad confused if they haven't been reading these books from the beginning with all the prior mentions that the author brings into the story more than once without much explanation.
That does not however take away from the authors writing which is handled beautifully as usual. Galenorn always pens a fantastic read with a well detailed world and cast I enjoy from beginning to end.
I will definitely have to pick up the previous books so I can have a better understanding of this installment.
Note: I received a print copy in exchange for an honest review from Berkley
