New York Times bestselling author Peter V. Brett brings one of the most imaginative fantasy sagas of the twenty-first century to an epic close. For time out of mind, bloodthirsty demons have stalked the night, culling the human race to scattered remnants dependent on half-forgotten magics to protect them. Then two heroes arose-men as close as brothers, yet divided by bitter betrayal. Arlen Bales became known as the Warded Man, tattooed head to toe with powerful magic symbols that enable him to fight demons in hand-to-hand combat-and emerge victorious. Jardir, armed with magically warded weapons, called himself the Deliverer, a figure prophesied to unite humanity and lead them to triumph in Sharak Ka-the final war against demonkind. But in their efforts to bring the war to the demons, Arlen and Jardir have set something in motion that may prove the end of everything they hold dear-a Swarm. Now the war is at hand and humanity cannot hope to win it unless Arlen and Jardir, with the help of Arlen's wife, Renna, can bend a captured demon prince to their will and force the devious creature to lead them to the Core, where the Mother of Demons breeds an inexhaustible army. Trusting their closest confidantes, Leesha, Inevera, Ragen and Elissa, to rally the fractious people of the Free Cities and lead them against the Swarm, Arlen, Renna, and Jardir set out on a desperate quest into the darkest depths of evil-from which none of them expects to return alive.

This is the fifth book in the series and the last. I have enjoyed the entire series and I’m sorry to see the end come. I look forward to other books by this author. All five books held my attention and drew me into the story. A great fantasy. With fascinating characters.

Meh, serious last two books become more and more dumb too me. Useless backstories of minor important people that come on in full chapters this late in the series? Characters grow stronger and dumber either neglecting or just plain forgetting their own strength! This was an annoying and disappointing read…

Amazing book. Amazing series. Amazing author. Amazing narrator. Just simply phenomenal all the way around. Not the most kid friendly so be aware of that but truly a captivating world Peter V. Brett has dreamed up and shared with us. The narrator is now one of my favorites as well. Excellent job all the way around.

Excellent wrap up to an excellent series! Mr. Brett has a beautifully vivid imagination, and wisely planted seeds for future story lines! Cannot wait to read about the lives and adventures of the “newest” characters! Many thanks to Peter V. Brett for letting us peer into his imagined world!
