Overview

A Gemmell Award-Winning Series

Malian of Night and Kalan, her trusted ally, are returning to the Wall of Night but already it may be too late. The Wall is dangerously weakened, the Nine Houses of the Derai fractured by rivalry and hate. And now, the Darkswarm is rising . . .

Among Grayharbor backstreets, an orphan boy falls foul of dark forces. On the Wall, a Daughter of Blood must be married off to the Earl of Night, a pawn in the web of her family's ambition. On the Field of Blood, Kalan fights for a place in the bride's honor guard, while Malian dodges deadly pursuers in a hunt against time for the fabled Shield of Heaven. But the Darkswarm is gaining strength, and time is running out for Malian, for Kalan, and for all of Haarth . . ."

Lowes tangled third Wall of Night epic fantasy installment (after The Gathering of the Lost) picks up the story just as darkness begins to overtake its heroes. Malian of Night and Kalan continue their quest to save the Derai Alliance from their ancient enemies, the Darksworn, but devastating revelations await them regarding the true history of their faction. Meanwhile, a young girl is thrust into a political marriage that will alter the course of the Derai, and the Sworn obtain an unlikely asset in the form of a street urchin. New readers hoping for an accessible introduction to Lowes work may be disappointed; theres no entry point to the plot (despite a 19-page glossary), there arent enough concrete descriptions of the magical and scientific systems underlying the world, and anyone who lacks a complete grasp of Lowes labyrinthine plots will be lost. Returning fans will find that the dense, unforgiving prose is nonetheless cleverly constructed and will delight in Lowes intricate worldbuilding and keen eye for politicking. The introduction of new characters and prophecies adds some depth of intrigue to Lowes impressive epic. (Jan.)
