Rulers of the Darkness(World at War, #4)
Imagine the drama and terror of the
Second World War – only the bullets are beams of magical fire, the tanks
are great lumbering beasts, and fighters and bombers are dragons raining
fire upon their targets. Welcome to the world of the Derlavaian War, a
world that is slowly but surely being conquered, mile by bloody mile, by
the forces of the Algarvian empire... forces whose most terrible
battle magics are powered by the slaughter of innocent people, the
Kaunians, whom Algarve – like much of the world – holds in disdain.
In this, the fourth volume of the series which began with Into the Darkness, the war for the continent of Derlavai builds toward its crescendo as the mages of Kuusamo, aided by their former rivals from Lagoas, work desperately to create a newer form of magic that will change the course of the war. But this is really a story of ordinary people – on all sides of the conflict – forced by fate to rise to their heroic limits... or sink to the level of their darker natures.
