All resistance has been crushed. In a few minutes of overwhelming violence the Council's air-dreadnought fleet has destroyed Fiz Gorgo's defences. Xervish Flydd, Irisis, and their allies have been condemned to die in a brutal aerial spectacle designed to reinforce Chief Scrutator Ghorr's power and majesty.
Nish is their one remaining hope. But Nish is trapped in a burning watchtower, and hunted by both the scrutators and his former lover, Ullii, whose twin brother he accidentally killed. Before Nish can hope to rescue his friends, he must convince Ullii to spare him, then overcome the most powerful cabal of mancers in the world as well as the Council's 400 crack guards.
And even if he succeeds, to win the war the allies still have to defeat the scrutators and overthrow Nennifer, the corrupt Council's dread bastion, before the rampaging lyrinx overwhelm all Santhenar.

"[Ian Irvine] brings his Well of Echoes saga to a spectacular and satisfying conclusion, confirming his reputation for first-rate fantasy page turners." (Van Ikin)
I enjoyed this series, although some of the characters can be quite painful in their attitudes. The story came to a good conlcusion. Then the author tried to restart the whole thing. Jal Nish reappears with no explanation of how he escaped the battle, survived and came to control the 'tears'. Too much for me, won't be reading any more of this series
"Chimeara. Absolutely brilliant!!"
They were all amazing, couldn't pick a favourite!
Yes. He is an an amazing reader, love his accent too!
Loads of them, I cried and laughed with the characters all the way through.
