Three moons are rising. They are rising over the snowy Archen Mountains, where Teia struggles through the high passes to carry her warning to the Empire: The Nimrothi war band is poised to invade and at their head stands Ytha. She means to release the Wild Hunt - and with it Maegern the Raven, the Keeper of the Dead.
In the desert of Gimrael, the moons are rising over the fires of revolution - flames that have already robbed Gair of a friend and left him alone in a hostile city, unsure even if the Song is still his to command. He has one last duty to discharge, and then nothing will stand between him and his ultimate goal: Vengeance. And in the Nordmen's chilly halls, Savin plays out a game in which kings and chieftains and men are but pawns on a chessboard that spans the Veil itself.
Three moons are rising. When the trinity is complete, the endgame will begin.

This is a great series. The characters have been well developed, growing along with the story. They're not the same people and it adds a good deal of depth to the tale.
I found the pace slowing down from halfway through the book. The supporting characters have been unveiled; we know who's good, bad and ugly. Now we need for 'it' to happen!
I don't want to say too much to spoil the story. Tanith is betrayed, Taeia is mistaken and lost and Gair... Gair is slowly tearing himself apart - or the demon in his mind is. He's still unaware of it.
It's good - very good. Can't wait for the next book.
