Noreela remains in deep trouble as the war to end all wars seems imminent. No one can hope to survive the upcoming hostilities as the mages have raised an invincible army that makes those who fought the Cataclysmic War look like children. The reign of magic may have ended, but it appears ready to ascend once more. From official release/information:
From back of book: Noreela teeters on the brink of destruction, but at its center pulses a magic grown stronger than ever before. Now the Mages have raised an army of terrifying warriors and unstoppable war machines. Their goal: the annihilation of all Noreela through a reign of bloodshed and death unlike any ever imagined.
But Noreela's last survivors will not go quiety into the never-ending darkness. One man will lead a desperate band of rebels, including a witch, a fledge miner, and a dreaming librarian. for an ancient prophecy predicts that the future of magic will emerge in a child still unborn--if only our heroes can stay alive until dawn.
