Summary

The conclusion of the bestselling Demon War series, which began with Rides a Dread Legion.

Recent events have devastated the Conclave of Shadows; the discovery of the Demon horde on the heels of the taredhel invasion of Midkemia, the threat of the star elves themselves, and the terrible personal cost paid by Pug and his family. But grieving must wait.

At a deserted fortress in the Valley of Lost Men, the Conclave's agents witness horror beyond their imagination, orchestrated by a familiar enemy. But Belasco's motives are as yet unclear.

The Conclave must regroup and discover the true meaning behind the chaos seeded by the evil magician if they are ever to find a way to stop the destruction of Triagia before the demon horde even arrives.

Excellent series

The saga of Pug and his friends continues at a pace. all in all I enjoyed the story.
I've always been impressed by these stories however a have to admit that I was just a little disappointed with just narration, this is mainly due to change made to some of the characters voices that were made. it seems a small point however after all the books that have gone before I would have expected better continuity.

Fantastic

Really well done, great story. The voice of Tomas was strange for a Valleru, sounds weak and old. But overall excellent

Disappointing

The sequel ends without any information on why the world is being attacked. Seems like the same entity has been causing all the problems since the very first book the magician but story ends in a mystery. Other than introducing the new elven race and Mirandas death theres not much substance in this book.

not the best

I am a huge Feist, Goodkind and Hobb fan, and so far this is one of my least favorites.

Rushed finale

Having really enjoyed rides a dread legion I was a little disappointed with this book. A lot of the characters introduced seemed to halt in their development and the story seemed to hurtle towards a rather inevitable conclusion. The Taradel seem to have been relegated to interesting back story with I found disappointing.

Great Epic Story

A story which is bringing near to conclusion an epic spanning several generations of characters. Having read all the books from Magician thru all series to 'At the Gates of Darkness', I always look forward to the next installment which twists and turns the fate of people and worlds.
It's just a pity that the whole saga isn't available on Audible at present as listening add another dimension to the whole experience of the books. I certainly recommend the Audio Books in this series and if the others are not available then go and read the books -
