The Unknown TerrorAfter a long winter spent in the Kellarin colony, the crafty and beautiful Livak is anxious to move on. Now an opportunity is on the horizon. The reclamation of a lost southern settlement is in the offing, but those involved, Livak included, must await the spring arrival of the first ship from the mainland -- an event that will never take place. Unbeknownst to all, the vital trading route to Tormalin is no longer secure. A dire new threat to the colony's survival has arisen. A final battle of strength, cunning and courage challenges Livak and her devoted swordsman-lover Ryshad, one that will force them to take up arms to confront a merciless, many-faceted evil.

    This was a satisfying end to the series. Although as predicted she was a bit rushed to wrap everything up from the past four novels, the ending left a smile on my face and sad that there wasn’t more...

  • Jean Marie

    The 5th tale of Einarrin. The final (?) battle with the Elietimm enchanters, as usual, once I got into it, it was hard to put it down. There are definitely a few threads opened through the series that...

    yea! the series is done. the killed the bad guy - very anti-climatic - the right people all got together - which we knew - people died we didn't want to die. blood, guts, and sharks ... that part was ...
