"Love The Wheel of Time? This is about to become your new favorite series." - B&N SF & Fantasy Blog
The third and final book in the acclaimed Licanius Trilogy by James Islington.
The Boundary is whole once again, but it may not be enough.
Banes now stalk Andarra, while in Ilin Illan, the political machinations of a generation come to a head as Wirr's newfound ability forces his family's long-patient enemies into action.
Imprisoned and alone in a strange land, Davian is pitted against the remaining Venerate as they work tirelessly to undo Asha's sacrifice - even as he struggles with what he has learned about the friend he chose to set free.
Meanwhile, Caeden is finally confronted with the full reality of his own plan - heartbroken at how it began, and repulsed by how it must end. As he realises that the Boundary was never truly meant to last, he must decide whether to set Asha free in order to try and finish the fight once and for all... and whether to tell her the truth of what will happen if he does.
"Islington has built a world with all the right genre elements: complex magic, terrifying threats out of legend, political intrigue, and a large cast of characters whose motivations are seldom clear. Fans of doorstop epic fantasy will not be disappointed." - Publishers Weekly
"Ingeniously plotted... Islington's natural storytelling ability provides incessant plot twists and maintains a relentless pace... A promising page-turner from a poised newcomer." - Kirkus
James Islington was born and raised in southern Victoria, Australia. His influences growing up were the stories of Raymond E. Feist and Robert Jordan, but it wasn't until later, when he read Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series - followed soon after by Patrick Rothfuss' Name of the Wind - that he was finally inspired to sit down and write something of his own. He now lives with his wife and daughter on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
James' first book, The Shadow Of What Was Lost, is published by Orbit. It is currently available in digital format, as well as hardcover and paperback.
