With Half Hidden by Twilight, D.S. Lliteras completes the trilogy he began with In the Heart of Things and continued with Into the Ashes.

Protagonist Llewellen, a Vietnam veteran who in the previous books suffered the loss of loved ones at home, here makes a gently triumphant discovery of his own capabilities and strengths. Up from the loneliness of dreary cold winter streets, he encounters death, hunger and loss, only to find wisdom and eventually real love.

Lliteras, a combat veteran himself, has been deeply touched by Zen and unashamedly allows haikulike forms to rise as poignant codas at the end of chapters. With just six words, he pens profoundity:
between space and time...infinity arises.
- The Virginian-Pilot, Robert Stanley Need
