Publisher’s Summary: “The beacon is lit, the final battle has started, and no matter the outcome, nothing will ever be the same for Thea of the Roto clan.”
The Essene arm themselves to protect all of the remnants of humanity, regardless of faction against the destructive terror that they themselves had unleashed in the form of Shiloh. However, their heroic intention to rescue those unlike themselves is met with misunderstanding and violence. Meanwhile, Rollo has one more desperate gesture that may be suicidal, but he has decided that he will no longer run away.
Daniel Warren Johnson has crafted an epic tale full of compassion and misery. He continues to ask the tough questions. In the face of endless war what matters? Who should be followed? What is honor? Will it all end in meaningless annihilation?
The tears are as prevalent as the blood. The raw emotion and primal violence bleed off of every page and it is impossible to look away. Not that you would want to.
The Bottom Line:
Love and honor are equally powerful and just as damaging. Thea and Rollo begin to see that there is no justification for the horrors, and that the emotional stakes are huge yet they do what they must do regardless of consequence. These characters have come a long way and they have a lot to lose. The story remains as exciting and thought provoking as ever. Extremity is not to be missed.
