What was once the Peradaini Empire is now a wasted landscape of burned, empty cities and abandoned farmlands. The Blessing, now more numerous than ever, continues to spread across the continent, driving refugees to the dubious safety of the city walls. Unharvested crops mean that few strongholds have enough provisions to last the winter, although most know the grunts will take them before starvation will.
But hope survives. A piece of stolen magic just might halt the spread of The Blessing if Tejohn and Cazia can find a scholar with the skill to re-create the spell. If such a person still lives.
Unfortunately they are nearly out of time. The few remaining human enclaves are isolated and under siege. Worse, The Blessing has spread to other sentient creatures. If Cazia and Tejohn are going to strike back at their monstrous enemy, they cannot delay.
And there's another deeper question left unaddressed: Where did The Blessing come from, and why have they invaded Kal-Maddum?
The Way into Darkness is the final book in The Great Way series.

The only fault that I found in this saga is that, regrettably, it came to an end. I'm pleased to find another author in Harry Connolly whose craftsmanship at creating a story with a unique take on the arcane arts but with a cast of characters and challenges that captivate one's interest such that they find it difficult to put down after any chapter.
As expected, Michael Kramer's narration was almost spellbinding on its own.
A wonderful saga.
I really loved this series. I didn't want to put it down. There was alot of action and the story moved along well. There really wasn't any spots where I thought the author was trying to stretch the book. I'm sad that it's over for me.
"Loved all of this book please do more"
After reading the first book I brought the second and third straightaway you're easily as good as anything that Brandon Sanderson is done I love this world and hope there are more books to come
