Series: The Age of Darkness Trilogy #3

My Thoughts:
What a great conclusion to this series! I really enjoyed this series, it was light, haha, oh you know I love that word! It was light of writing, it was not light in tone. Nope, it was dark in tone. Light writing and dark tone equals: great fantasy series that people should read.

They are all set at different times and different people, but it works. Sure peace came in book 1 but true peace takes time.

In this one one of the cities in Shael is in trouble. The country suffered greatly in the war. And now the dead walk and hunt the living. No, not zombies. What is going on in the city?

In the city we have the Of Alyssa, who tries to rally people together. And Zannah who was really fascinating. She was the invading enemy that stayed behind and everyone hates her, but they also know she is keeping them alive.

Balruss, the mighty battlemage who saved everyone during the war. And Tammy, the guardian that travels with him to this haunted city. Tammy was kickass!

It takes place in a dead city. There is death, dead? people. And just a book that I read so fast and could not put it down. Light in writing, dark in tone. Just perfect.

And that was the end! *sobs* But there is another series that takes place 10 years after. Yay. I want more about the weird gods!

Voechenka is a city under siege. Decimated by the Battlemage War, its dead now walk the city at night, attacking survivors, calling their names and begging the living to join them beyond the grave.

Tammy is a Guardian of the Peace sent to the city to investigate, so the ruling powers can decide whether to help Voechenka or leave it to its grisly fate.

Zannah is a pariah in Voechenka - making up for her people's war crimes by protecting refugees who fear her far more than their unearthly attackers.

Balfruss is a scholar, a traveler . . . and the infamous mage who single-handedly ended the war.No one else may enter or leave the city - so if this ragtag group of survivors can't figure out what is going on, they'll live out their last days within its walls.And night is coming on fast . . .
