Publisher's Summary

When seven moons rise, the world will end.

So the prophecy says, and so it is being carried out. In the magical world of Varay, more and more moons rise. On earth, nuclear war lays the planet to waste.

Gil Tyner, Hero of Varay, must make common cause with his sworn enemy, the Elflord, to avert the end of everything.

As the boundaries between earth and the realm of magic begin to blur, Gil must brave dangers in both worlds, until he finally stands against an entity so mighty that their battle will either avert Armageddon, or destroy everything we’ve ever known.

Ok but…(minor spoilers)

I thought this book was ok. Just that ok. The best parts were not bad but the worst were bad. The sex was detailed to the point of making me cringe. I found the portion where the hero fell into madness maddening myself.

Had I not been invested in the story from the first 2 books I probably would have stopped listening b

The reader was on but if felt like he was someone reading me a story instead of telling me one.
