Publisher's Summary

The last few months of the moontide - when the bridge connecting East and West rises above the sea - has come, and in the West Emperor Constant prepares the final phase of his plan to conquer the East.

For failed mage Alaron and his companion Ramita - widow to the mage who built the Leviathan Bridge - the unthinkable has happened. They have lost the Scytale of Corineus, the key to the Rite of Ascendancy, as well as one of Ramita's infant sons, to the hands of their deadliest enemies.

In Javon, Cera Nesti, the imprisoned queen, has been freed, and plots to take on the overwhelming might of the Rondian Empire. But standing between her and her goal is a band of deadly mercenaries playing a dangerous game of their own.

And in the East, Seth Korion's Lost Legions must navigate treacherous roads to gain safety, bearing secrets that could bring down the Emperor.

The time has come for the Rite of Ascendancy to be performed. New powers must rise to save or damn Urte, and on the mighty Leviathan Bridge itself, all will be decided.

    "Phenomenal End to an Amazing Series"

    I've been waiting for this book to be released since March after I finish the first 3 books of the Moontide Quartet. I cannot recommend the series enough. Its the ultimate epic fantasy that has the perfect mix of adventure, mystery and intrigue with strong characters that suck you in to a masterfully depicted world that the author has created. On top of the great story, Nick Podehl brings the characters to life with his phenomenal performance. I couldn't stop listening to all four books. You will not be disappointed.

    "Excellent ending to an excellent series!"

    I don't normally write Audible reviews but this book was so good. Every promise made by the first three books was paid in full. I highly recommend this whole series.

    "Great Story"

    Love these books. Characters are great as they grow and learn. The story was left open for a lot of characters and I can't wait to see where it goes especially the twins.

    The only criticism I have is one part in the book seemed to be a filler as it was not really needed in the book. Spoiler I am talking about the last bits of Malevorn Andevarion and him finding Core.

    "I can't wait to read this series again"

    Like Joe Aberceombie, R.R. Martin and, Steven Erikson some Authors are better the second time you read their series. David Hair is one of those, and I loved this story and want more. Great job.

    "Wow"

    Loved it. Unlike others I've read, this had the perfect amount of strife associated with the main characters. I'll be listening to all 4 books over and over!

    Great character depth, twisting and entangled storylines, and well written. The entire plot is well planned.
