The world is falling apart. The magical apocalypse has come. Now is the time to guard the covenstead against both raiders and refugees. But Max has been stolen by a powerful demi-god who is determined to force her to find a way to use a magical power she never knew she had—even if it kills her. Meanwhile, back in Horngate, a Fury is birthing. When the creature breaks free of the fragile bonds that enclose her, her rage will scour the covenstead from the earth.
Max finds herself in the Shadow City, a place of mysteries and magic, where she must battle for her freedom or become a slave to creatures of dreadful greed and power. Back in Horngate, Alexander must swallow his anger and pride if he hopes to defeat the Fury, a creature that no one has ever successfully fought before.
In the end, it will be courage, friendship, faith and loyalty that win the day. Or else so one will live to see tomorrow.
I haven't quite finished up this book but another great addition to this series! Diana brings such life to her books. Max is one tough character. If I could have just an ounce of her determination and grit lol. Matter of a fact all of the characters are fantastic.
I really like the dual storyline going on in this one. Max in Chadare trying to save Scooter's life and Alexander trying to save Horngate from a fury. I'm liking this new addition in the book, Ilanion and I hope to see more of his character as the book continues on.
Less than 100 pages to go and I can't wait to finish it tomorrow. A definite must read if you're a fan of this series and if you haven't tried the series, give it a shot.
