the Author

After a fierce battle, Erin of Elliath and her comrades and her comrades have brought hope back to the Servants of the Bright Heart. The throne of Maran­tine has been reclaimed, and a new King rules the last remnants of Lernan’s people.

Within the lands of the Dark Empire, however, the power of the Bright Heart grows dim. The last strong­hold of the Light, the well of Lernan’s power, is quickly draining in the shadow of the inex­orable forces of Dark­ness. The High Priests compete for supremacy, and even the nobility of the Dark Empire has begun to feel the burder of their never-ending war. The First of the Sundered, Lord Stefanos, has returned, once again walking the night and devouring the inno­cent in mourning for his lost beloved — Lady Sara, Erin of Elliath.

Erin is deter­mined to free the Light and release her long dead friends from the purga­tory of the Dark Heart. She must once more journey into the heart of the Dark Lands to confront the legacy of Lady Sara and the inevitable destiny of the lines, forcing her heart toward a final confronta­tion with her most formi­dable and ancient enemy — the man she loves.
