The Helat rebels have broken the power of the demon lord and challenged the rule of their masters, the Sol-ket. But the Darkwing is merely in retreat, biding his time, and the Sol-ket will fight to their last breath to keep control of their golden cities. The power of the slaves is mounting as they rise to fulfil once-forbidden prophecies. When the Darkwing returns for his final onslaught, is anyone, soldier or slave, equipped to defeat him - especially as the cruel sun sets, beckoning a devastatingly relentless winter?

A brilliant continuation of the journey begun in RISE OF THE BLOOD MOON, this novel also stands alone, with its own twists, turns and surprises for characters and readers alike. Be prepared for changes of allegiance, surprise new arrivals, and sudden deaths. Page-turning and unpredictable from start to finish.

'an absorbing, imaginative, adventure story set in ancient times.' (IRISH EXAMINER)

'I reviewed Rise of the Blood Moon and was totally enthralled by the story; i was therefore overjoyed to be asked to review its sequel. The book doesn't disappoint at all. There is the same level of excitement and suspense as the two themes are played out... I couldn't put this book down... a wonderful, fantastical story - what more can I say?' (WRITE AWAY)

'an important addition to the children's fantasty oeuvre.' (Jake Hope BOOKS FOR KEEPS)
