Synopsis (from Amazon): The Sages are dying. The gods are waking up. Kole, Linn and their companions have survived the wilds of Center, slain another Sage and put their world on a path toward salvation. Or so they think. But the Eastern Dark has returned and laid claim to the power of T’Alon Rane, making the King of Ember his dark servant once more. Now, their ancient enemy marches across the frozen wastes of the north, seeking to end the life of his former ally and the last true power that can stand against him. With the last two Sages on a collision course that could decide the fate of the world, the Landkist of the Valley have a choice to make. One between darkness and light, redemption and corruption. For the Frostfire Sage is alive and unwell. And she has secrets to keep. And scores to settle.
