The fourth book in the Evermen Saga.
The Lord of the Night is coming. The future of civilization is at stake.
Miro, high lord of Altura, is in the Imperial capital to prepare the Empire for the onslaught. He knows his homeland lies directly in the enemy's path but struggles to form the alliances he needs.
As the high lords bicker, Ella seeks the help of the newly crowned emperor, Killian. But, amid the growing tensions, their responsibilities drive them apart and, as emperor, Killian can't be seen to favor Ella's homeland.
Against a backdrop of old hurts, guilty secrets, and shaky new allegiances, people of all nations and abilities must learn to trust one another again, and form a united front against a powerful enemy intent on destroying them once and for all.

The characters are never in danger, mortal wound heal without reason, amazing creations of magic are defeated with an ease that is distracting and annoying
I read all the other books but only listened to this one and the narrator was very good.
The entire series kept my interest since it was a different take on magic than most other SCIFI books.
I've now finished listening to this series and I enjoyed the entire thing. Simon Vance, as always, makes this book come alive and choosing him as a reader saved it, because the story itself sort of falls together too easily -- too many last minute saves, narrow escapes, etc. etc. The term dues ex machina definitely comes to mind.
So, I would unhesitatingly suggest this as an enjoyable tale, but at same time, warn people that they shouldn't expect anything deep or terribly moving from the text itself. This is a real shame because some of the premises, like the nature of gods, are very interesting and could have been the subject of much deeper inquiry. As it is, it is a fun and enjoyable bit of fluff, great for whiling the miles away, and certainly not a source of frustration. But do realize, it is Simon Vance's skill as a reader, that saves this book from being entirely skippable.
I love this series. The author and the reader take you on an amazing trip through another world. This series is complex and developed and wonderful.
I bought the first book and I wasn't too sure but it got good I really enjoyed the series and the last book on my goodness, I have recommended this to my son and he is been waiting for me to buy the fourth book we both enjoyed it very much
A grand tale of fantasy, combined with love, death and honour. A worthy read! Very good!
"Much too neat an ending"
Not bad, but battle scenes over long. The last book was disappointing with a rather predictable end.
