The aging First Lord of Alera has fallen in battle. Yet his people must continue to resist an invading inhuman army. Desperate Alerans even pledge fealty to the Vord Queen to survive, turning the incredible power of Aleran furies back on their own people. And despite all efforts, the Alerans are being ground into dust and pushed to the farthest reaches of their own realm.

However, Tavi has returned with vital insights from the Canim Blood Lands. He knows how to counter the Vord and, more importantly, believes human ingenuity can equal fury-born powers. Now events are rushing towards a last stand, where Tavi and the last Aleran legions must formulate a dangerous new strategy, together. For a civilisation is on the brink of extinction.

User Review  - nnschiller - LibraryThing

Generally, a last book in a series isn't my favorite. I tend to prefer character development over the resolution of a long building plot arc. Butcher does a good job of wrapping up loose ends and leaving us to believe that his characters live on after the books end. Satisfying. Read full review

This whole series was pretty standard epic fantasy. If yo ??ve enjoyed it so far, yo ??ll definitely want to read this ending which is pretty exciting but predictable at the same time. Read full review
