AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What happens if after the winter solstice, the days keep getting shorter?

And shorter?

'Until there is an eternal night?

'What happens as the darkness grows?

'And the creatures of dusk take control of the Mountain?

'And the quest for the third Book is the only hope?

'The Mountain is in its death throes as the Nazir send their wraiths to finish what the dusk-rats and grale had begun. Soon there will be no daylight to protect the Maelir and Faemir, and with each twilight there are fewer places to hide. Will the Mountain finally collapse under its own instability or will Atreu and Verlinden's descent find the words of salvation in the Lost Book of Ascension?' (Publication summary)

  • Dedication: For Lucy
  • Epigraph:

    Whne the Mountain becomes the Abyss
    And what you breathe becomes what you expel
    You will find what is hidden.

    When the sun becomes night
    And you become what you blieve
    You will find your heart.

    When the Reader becomes the Teller
    And the searcher is the one found
    You will find the truth.

    – The Book of Maelur
