The final days of hope have come and gone. The kingdoms of Illian stand on the edge of ruin, threatened by the armies of Valanis. As evil spreads across the land, too few are left to hold the line. A world away, the children of fire and flame may be the only hope for the realm. But the dragons have been defeated before, and Verda’s future now hangs in the balance. Reeling from their losses, Asher and his companions journey north, trying to outrun the savage Darkakin. A confrontation awaits the ranger, but even with Paldora’s gem, he dare not challenge Valanis yet.

the story is really good but Nath is very immature and it drove me nuts that when he realized he did wrong...its always too late. Also, the music and sound effects are very weird. Maybe the author need to re release the book without all the sound effects...or just label the book for kids...thats what it sounds like.
