They are the light against the darkness.

The steel against the necromancy of the Druj.

And they use demons to hunt demons....


Nazafareen lives for revenge. A girl of the isolated Four-Legs Clan, all she knows about the King's elite Water Dogs is that they bind wicked creatures called daevas to protect the empire from the Undead. But when scouts arrive to recruit young people with the gift, she leaps at the chance to join their ranks. To hunt the monsters that killed her sister.


Scarred by grief, she's willing to pay any price, even if it requires linking with a daeva named Darius. Human in body, he's possessed of a terrifying power, one that Nazafareen controls. But the golden cuffs that join them have an unwanted side effect. Each experiences the other's emotions, and human and daeva start to grow dangerously close.


As they pursue a deadly foe across the arid waste of the Great Salt Plain to the glittering capital of Persepolae, unearthing the secrets of Darius's past along the way, Nazafareen is forced to question his slavery--and her own loyalty to the empire. But with an ancient evil stirring in the north, and a young conqueror sweeping in from the west, the fate of an entire civilization may be at stake...


Praise for The Midnight Sea


"A spellbinding fantasy with some moral weight and a meatier narrative than usual, one likely to leave readers quite satisfied... Ross conjures an epic of demons and daevas, family, loss, and the turmoil of a kingdom in peril."-Kirkus Reviews


"An addictive, action-packed, glorious page-turner!" -Am Kinda Busy Reading


"For a world of shifting alliances and trusts, fully realized and multi-faceted characters, and a fantasy that takes place in a little touched upon setting in young adult literature, The Midnight Sea delivers on all fronts and starts off a new series of romance, magic, and a well-written and captivating story." -Bibliobibuli YA


"GUARD YOUR HEART. For in The Midnight Sea, Kat Ross delivers a riveting fantasy of unparalleled proportions that stole a piece of mine." -Flylef Reviews


"I really hate the word ‘epic’ because, let’s face it, it’s so overused and it’s lost its true meaning, but this book deserves that word." -Book Reader Chronicles


"The Midnight Sea has everything I enjoy in a fantasy and more. I highly recommend it for readers who love elemental magic, kick-ass heroines and a captivating story." -Cover2Cover Reviews


"Kat Ross creates a rich fantasy world, full of new and scary creatures, lots of magical powers, and an intricately woven plot that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page." -Book Briefs

It's August 1888, just three weeks before Jack the Ripper will terrorize Whitechapel, and another murderer is stalking the streets of New York. His handiwork bears the hallmarks of a demonic possession—but amateur sleuth Harrison Fearing Pell is certain her quarry is a man of flesh and blood. And she hopes to make her reputation by solving the bizarre case before the man the press has dubbed Mr. Hyde strikes again.

From the squalor of the Five Points to the high-class gambling dens of the Tenderloin and the glittering mansions of Fifth Avenue, Harry follows the trail of a remorseless killer, uncovering a few embarrassing secrets of New York's richest High Society families along the way. Are the murders a case of black magic—or simple blackmail? And will the trail lead closer to home than she ever imagined?

Praise for The Daemoniac

"While the clever mystery is reason enough to keep pages turning, the novel’s writing remains its greatest asset. Employing a tone that affects the style of Victorian literature and the Conan Doyle stories, but without the stiffness readers might associate with older fiction, the prose is a genuine delight. Furthermore, the characters conjure Holmes and Watson without belaboring the point or adopting a sense of smug superiority. Ross provides two endlessly charming sleuths, and Harry’s womanhood adds new depth to familiar ground. All in all, there’s an impressive amount of detail and care packed into these pages, not only in references to the Holmes canon, but also in inventive storytelling and colorful portraiture of 19th-century New York. An unexpected treat of a detective novel with a strong heroine, making Ross a name to look out for." -Kirkus Reviews

"Harry and John are a most appealing pair…Frequent nods to the Sherlock Holmes canon and a blend of charm and darkness turned this first volume of a hopefully long-running series into a few hours of pure pleasure." -Buried Under Books

Nocturne, a wilderness of eternal night.
Solis, a wasteland of endless day.

Nazafareen is a Breaker, a mortal who has the rare ability to shatter spell magic—although her power carries a high price. With the memories of her former self erased and nowhere else to turn, she comes to Nocturne hoping to start a new life under the triple moons of the darklands.

But when an assassin forces Nazafareen to flee to the sunlit mortal city of Delphi, she finds herself embroiled in a deeper mystery whose origins lie far in the past. Why was the continent sundered into light and dark a thousand years before? And what really happened to the elegant but ruthless creatures who nearly reduced the world to ashes? The new Oracle might know, but she’s outlawed magic and executes anyone caught practicing it. Nazafareen must hide her powers and find a way out of the city—before it’s too late.

As the net slowly tightens, something ancient and vengeful begins to stir in the arid death zone called the Kiln. A dashing daeva named Darius is pursuing Nazafareen, but so are a multitude of enemies. War is brewing again. Can she stay alive long enough to stop it?

Praise for Nocturne

"A historical fantasy that crackles with electricity…The narrative’s magical components never overshadow the players and their struggles. And the characters newly taking shape are thrilling to behold. Layered subplots featuring Culach, Mina, and Javid provide an embarrassment of riches. The finale primes audiences to learn about the legendary Vatras, who did what other elementals can’t—control fire." -Kirkus Reviews

Visionary. Alchemist. Savior. Saint.

The Prophet Zarathustra has been called many things. Now he spends his time drawing pictures of weird-looking goats. That's what happens when you've been stuck in a prison cell for two hundred years. But the man who might be mad, and is definitely supposed to be dead, has suddenly become very valuable again…

It's only been a few weeks since Nazafareen escaped the King's dungeons with her daēva, Darius. She hoped never to set foot in the empire again, but the search for the Prophet has led them to the ancient city of Karnopolis. They have to find him before Alexander of Macydon burns Persepolae, and Darius's mother with it. But they're not the only ones looking. 

The necromancer Balthazar has his own plans for the Prophet, and so does the sinister spymaster of the Numerators. As Nazafareen is drawn in to a dangerous game of cat and mouse, her newfound powers take a decidedly dark turn. Only the Prophet understands the secret of her gift, but the price of that knowledge may turn out to be more than Nazafareen is willing to pay…

Praise for Blood of the Prophet

"The stakes have risen in this sequel, but personal connections are still the heart of the story, from Darius' relationship with his mother to the tragic tale of spurned lovers that set dark events in motion ages ago. Ironically, although the events in this book are more epic than those in the previous one, the personal moments shine through more clearly, perhaps because the links between these world-shaking occurrences and the individual grudges that started them are brought more into the light. It's always refreshing to enjoy a story where well-drawn characters are so central to the events of the plot rather than feeling tacked on." --Kirkus Reviews

"A crazy, intense ride of a story...Ross masterfully pens a fantastical series with a flawed but brave heroine and a ragtag group of heroes that sometimes skirt the line, but always end up finding the right avenue."--Book Reader Chronicles, 5 of 5 stars

"I cannot recommend this series enough! It really has it all: action, magic, mythology, romance, friendship….JUST READ IT! I promise you that you won’t regret it." --Rattle the Stars

"Reading Blood of the Prophet further established Kat Ross as one of the authors I will automatically buy. Her alternate ancient history is lushly created and riveting, with enough of the truth wrapped around the fantasy to make it feel familiar. --Bibliobibuliya, 5 of 5 stars

"A stellar follow up to the first in the series…Nazafareen and Darius completely stole my heart in this book, and the ending just left me breathless for more." --Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile

"Blood of the Prophet is an awe-inspiring achievement from a writer adept at writing a page-turner that is undeniably also heartfelt. Kat Ross will recruit admirers with each new book, as she has with me." --FLYLef YA blog

"Some of the names and places will be familiar to readers who know anything about the Persian empire, but everything has been changed and twisted into something different and exciting and completely of Kat's own making. Her beautiful prose just adds to the overall effect and makes for an incredible book that does not suffer from the typical sophomore slump. I can't wait to read the final book in this part of the trilogy! 5/5 would definitely recommend." --The AP Book Club

"Kat Ross is back with a very addictive sequel in the form of Blood of the Prophet...Fast-paced, exciting and endlessly well written." --The Rest Is Still Unwritten

Persepolae has fallen.
Karnopolis has burned.

As the dark forces of the Undead sweep across what remains of the empire, Nazafareen must obey the summons of a demon queen to save Darius's father, Victor. Burdened with a power she doesn't understand and can barely control, Nazafareen embarks on a perilous journey through the shadowlands to the House-Behind-the-Veil. But what awaits her there is worse than she ever imagined…

A thousand leagues away, Tijah leads a group of children on a desperate mission to rescue the prisoners at Gorgon-e Gaz, the stronghold where the oldest daevas are kept. To get there, they must cross the Great Salt Plain, a parched ruin occupied by the armies of the night. A chance encounter adds a ghost from the past to their number. But will they arrive in time to avert a massacre?

And in the House-Behind-the-Veil, Balthazar and the Prophet Zarathustra discover that they have more in common than meets the eye. But is it enough to salvage the necromancer's bloodstained soul and thwart his mistress's plans?

As a final showdown looms between Alexander the Great and Queen Neblis, the truth of the daevas' origins is revealed and three worlds collide in this thrilling conclusion to the Fourth Element series.

Praise for Queen of Chaos

"This is truly a grand finale of a book, mysteries from the very beginning of the series are put to rest and our heroes win in unexpected ways. Queen of Chaos delivers a beautiful ending that is perfect as it is but is left open enough for another story to seamlessly fit in." -Bibliobibuli

"I'm never a read-a-book-in-one-sitting kind of person, but I totally did it with Queen of Chaos. Then I hugged my Kindle and wanted to start the series all over again." -Rattle the Stars

Gladiator meets Romeo and Juliet in this "spellbinding fantasy" trilogy (Kirkus Reviews) set in ancient Persia!

They are the light against the darkness.
The steel against the necromancy of the Druj.
And they use demons to hunt demons….

Nazafareen lives for revenge. A girl of the isolated Four-Legs Clan, all she knows about the King's elite Water Dogs is that they leash wicked creatures called daevas to protect the empire from the Undead. But when scouts arrive to recruit young people with the gift, she leaps at the chance to join their ranks. To hunt the monsters that killed her sister.

But with an ancient evil stirring in the north, and a young conqueror sweeping in from the west, the fate of an entire civilization may be at stake…

So begins an epic story of adventure, romance and betrayal that leads to undiscovered magical realms and a final confrontation with a demon queen bent on destroying them all.

Praise for the Fourth Element Trilogy

"A spellbinding fantasy with some moral weight and a meatier narrative than usual, one likely to leave readers quite satisfied... This tale’s grand scope is set off beautifully by its intimate start. The story grows wonderfully from such a small seed, and it is the moral and subjective implications of the vastness and impersonality of the Empire that work so well to drive the narrative. The plot builds effectively, and maintains a swift pace. Nazafareen’s initial simplistic motivation, hatred, becomes complicated by her link to Darius, and evolves into something much more intriguing and complex. This transition is helped by the clarity with which the characters are drawn. The immensity of the Empire occasionally threatens to smother the personal tale at the heart of the story, but, like shadows around a candle flame, it never quite manages that feat." -Kirkus Reviews

"Fantasy lovers who enter this world will be wooed by its expansive world-building, soul-crushing romance, deeply layered characters, and page-turning twists." --Flylef Reviews

In the third volume of the Fourth Talisman series, the hunt is on for the three daevas whose powers saved the world once before….

On the White Sea, realm of smashers and sea monsters, a ship is carrying Nazafareen and Darius to the Isles of the Marakai, where the wise woman Sakhet-ra-katme has guarded the secret of the talismans for centuries. But another is searching too, a daeva born in the brutal prison of the Kiln, who plans to use the talismans to free the Vatras and their mad king. When their paths collide at the emperor’s lavish palace in Tjanjin, Nazafareen and Darius face their deadliest and most cunning foe yet. 

In the mountain fastness of Val Moraine, the Pythia’s minions are on the scent of another talisman, this one from the Danai clan. Trapped behind a thick wall of ice, everyone’s going slightly mad—the perfect cauldron of suspicion and betrayal for Thena, who sees a chance to redeem her failure and bring the talisman back to Delphi. Then she’ll be free to indulge her twisted obsession with Darius—and make him pay.

And in Samarqand, Javid is drawn into the treacherous currents of a royal succession. When the old king dies and his son takes the throne, the depths of the prince’s depravity become clear. A journey north reveals the source of the spell dust he’s addicted to—and leaves Javid with an impossible choice.

Praise for Monstrum

"The plot is complex and rich, every turn is filled with either action, love, or lies. Kat Ross writes binge-worthy fantasy stories. Get Nocturne and Solis and Monstrum, lock yourself away somewhere with lots of snacks and read them!" –I Love a Good Book

"Ross keeps all of her narrative plates spinning at top speed… High fantasy marked by restraint, subtlety, and deep character maneuvering." –Kirkus Reviews

"A dark and potent fantasy….Monstrum is her best book yet! This story is rich and haunting, with a potent kind of magic that’s barely contained, and an incredible cast of indomitable and morally complex characters." –FlyLef Reviews

"Monstrum was another dashing read and I can’t wait to see what Kat Ross does next. There were both revelations and new questions raised in this novel and I have no doubt the next one will be as thrilling and sure to both answer them as well as raise others." –The Rest Is Still Unwritten

"Monstrum is something truly special. Ross really upped the stakes this time and the characters are forced to make tons of difficult decisions. It was action-packed, fun to read and all consuming. My heart was beating non-stop the entire time!" –Rattle the Stars

In the second volume of the Fourth Talisman series, Nazafareen’s path takes a twist, setting her on a journey into the heart of the maelstrom…

It’s been a thousand years since the Avas Vatras tried to burn the world to ashes. A thousand years since they were imprisoned in the brutal wasteland called the Kiln. But revenge is a dish best served cold—even, apparently, by the children of fire. 

In Delphi, Nazafareen joins forces with the followers of Dionysius to rescue her friends from the Oracle’s dungeons and seek out the three talismans whose extraordinary powers stopped the Vatras before. With her own breaking magic growing stronger by the day, she must walk a razor’s edge to control her volatile temper. And if the Vatras find the talismans first, their last hope will die.

In the frozen wastes of the Valkirin range, Victor strikes an uneasy bargain to keep his tenuous grip on the Maiden Keep. The other holdfasts are coming for him. But it’s a traitor within Val Moraine’s walls that may prove to be his downfall.

Praise for Solis

"Ross plots with Olympian vigor, packing her alternate version of Persia with complex characters and a multilayered mythos. This volume’s opening dilemma finds resolution, but there’s plenty still in flux to drive readers to an epic third installment. A complicated follow-up that pushes its cast to the physical and emotional brink." -Kirkus Reviews

“Solis is totally full throttle ahead. Reading it was exhilarating and beyond fun. It’s one of the things I love most about Kat Ross’ books…they are always fast-paced. Not a single page is wasted in moving the characters and story along. It was seriously difficult to put down!” –Rattle the Stars

Winter 1888. At an asylum in the English countryside, a man suspected of being Jack the Ripper kills an orderly and flees into the rain-soaked night. His distraught keepers summon the Lady Vivienne Cumberland—who's interviewed their patient and isn't sure he's a man at all. An enigmatic woman who guards her own secrets closely, Lady Vivienne knows a creature from the shadowlands when she sees one. And he’s the most dangerous she's ever encountered.

As Jack rampages through London, this time targeting rare book collectors, Lady Vivienne begins to suspect what he's looking for. And if he finds it, the doors to the underworld will be thrown wide open…

Across the Atlantic, an archaeologist is brutally murdered after a Christmas Eve gala at the American Museum of Natural History. Certain peculiar aspects of the crime attract the interest of the Society for Psychical Research and its newest investigator, Harrison Fearing Pell. Is Dr. Julius Sabelline's death related to his recent dig in Alexandria? Or is the motive something darker?

As Harry uncovers troubling connections to a serial murder case she’d believed was definitively solved, two mysteries converge amid the grit and glamor of Gilded Age New York. Harry and Lady Vivienne must join forces to stop an ancient evil. The key is something called the Thirteenth Gate. But where is it? And more importantly, who will find it first?

Praise for The Thirteenth Gate

"Ms. Ross marries the world of science and paranormal seamlessly, applying well-researched, scientific principles to an intricately detailed investigation where the clues unfold to reveal a wholly plausible, yet deeply sinister case of supernatural phenomena. The mastery of The Thirteenth Gate is that it is a story propelled by the thrill of suspense, yet beautifully centered on emotions that tug at my heart." –FlyLef Reviews

"What do you get if you take an intricately plotted, suspenseful historical mystery set in 19th century London and New York and add ghouls and daemons? An enthralling, wonderfully entertaining read, that’s what!" –What Cathy Read Next blog

"Amazing, thrilling and heart-pounding…The Thirteenth Gate is a real treat, especially if you - like me - are a fan of paranormal mysteries, even more so if you have a penchant for Victorian London." –Field of Bookish Dreams

"I did not put it down until the last page, and even then I wanted more!  Now I wonder how long it will take to the next book; I am addicted, what can I say?" –Kinda Busy Reading

Pricolici.


A creature out of folklore. And nightmare.


January 1889. When a Romanian village suffers a series of brutal attacks, occult investigator Anne Lawrence is dispatched to the forests of the Old Country to hunt the killer – only to vanish without a trace.


The trail leads her mentor Vivienne Cumberland deep into the Carpathians to a remote monastery. As a blizzard rages outside, trapping them all with the pricolici, Vivienne risks sharing the fate of the woman she came to find. But is the culprit truly a werewolf … or something even more dangerous?


A man bent on revenge. And a love that was never meant to be.


Imprisoned in a decaying castle, Anne finds herself ensnared in a web of dark enchantment, at the mercy of a mysterious captor with a beast inside – and a memory as old as the ancient legends.


As the weeks pass, Anne learns his real identity, and slowly uncovers a complex and deeply passionate man. But is she willing to pay the price for falling under his spell?


Note: This darkly magical reimagining of Beauty and the Beast is the third book in the Gaslamp Gothic series, but can be read as a standalone with no need to start with Book #1, The Daemoniac.

Forgiveness is not Gabriel D’Ange’s strong suit.


A self-appointed soldier of God with a penchant for ruthlessly punishing his enemies, he vanished after Anne Lawrence stabbed him with his own dagger.


The smart thing would be to let him go.


Unfortunately, Anne’s life isn’t just lonely without Gabriel. It’s insufferably boring.


Determined to heal the rift between them, Anne goes in search of her tempestuous former lover, black parasol in hand and daeva magic crackling at her fingertips. But Gabriel has his own plans afoot and she finds herself drawn into one of his tangled webs, much against her better judgment.


Gabriel’s nemesis has reappeared in Brussels, a vile slaver who’s plundering the Congo Free State with the blessing of King Leopold. Gabriel might be willing to give Anne a second chance, but not until Jorin Bekker’s head is lying at his feet.


Back in London, the quasi-reformed necromancer Balthazar sets his sights on the same quarry. He holds a very personal grudge against Bekker — and killing him might be the only way to keep Gabriel D’Ange from Balthazar’s own throat.


When the hunters collide at a lavish gala thrown by the king, Anne’s darkest secret comes to light and she learns just how far she’ll go to save the man she loves.

Nocturne, la selvaggia terra della notte eterna.
Solis, la landa desolata del giorno interminabile.

Nazafareen è un Distruttore, una mortale che ha la rara abilità di annientare la magia, sebbene il suo potere abbia un costo elevatissimo. Senza più alcun ricordo di ciò che era, giunge a Nocturne, sperando di iniziare una nuova vita sotto le triplici lune delle terre oscure.
Ma quando un assassino costringe Nazafareen a fuggire nella città dei mortali di Delfi, si ritroverà invischiata in un mistero più profondo, le cui origini risalgono a un passato remoto. Perché il continente mille anni prima è stato diviso tra luce e oscurità? E cos’è davvero successo alle creature aggraziate ma spietate che hanno quasi ridotto il mondo in cenere? Il nuovo Oracolo potrebbe saperlo, ma ha bandito la magia, e giustizia chiunque sia sorpreso a praticarla. Nazafareen dovrà nascondere i suoi poteri e trovare una via d'uscita dalla città, prima che sia troppo tardi.
Mentre la rete si stringe lentamente, qualcosa di antico e di vendicativo comincia a muoversi nell’arida zona chiamata la Fornace. Un impetuoso daeva di nome Darius è sulle tracce di Nazafareen, ma lo sono anche una moltitudine di nemici. La guerra si avvicina di nuovo.
Riuscirà a rimanere in vita abbastanza a lungo per fermarla?

Un fantasy storico che crepita di elettricità… le componenti magiche non offuscano mai i protagonisti e le loro lotte, e i personaggi che stanno prendendo forma sono eccitanti. C’è l’imbarazzo della scelta tra le sottotrame di Culach, Mina e Javid. KIRKUS REVIEWS

È una ragazza dell’isolato clan Four-Legs e tutto ciò che sa dei Water Dog del Re è che legano a sé delle creature malvagie chiamate daeva per proteggere l’impero dai non-morti. Ma quando arrivano degli esploratori per reclutare persone con il dono, afferra al volo l’opportunità di unirsi alle loro file per dare la caccia ai mostri che le hanno ucciso la sorella.

Segnata dal dolore, è disposta a pagare ogni prezzo, anche se significa legarsi a un daeva chiamato Darius. Umano solo nell’aspetto, possiede un potere terrificante, controllato da Nazafareen. Ma i bracciali d’oro che li uniscono hanno un indesiderato effetto collaterale. Ciascuno prova le emozioni dell’altro, e l’umana e il daeva cominciano a diventare pericolosamente intimi.

Mentre inseguono un nemico mortale lungo l’arida Great Salt Plain fino alla scintillante capitale Persepolae, dissotterrando i segreti del passato di Darius, Nazafareen è costretta a mettere in dubbio la schiavitù dei daeva e la sua stessa lealtà nei confronti dell’impero. Ma con un male antico che si agita al nord e un giovane conquistatore che controlla l’ovest, il destino dell’intera civiltà potrebbe essere in pericolo…

Visionario. Alchimista. Salvatore. Santo.

Il Profeta Zarathustra è stato chiamato in molti modi. Ora trascorre il suo tempo disegnando capre dall’aspetto bizzarro. Ecco cosa succede quando ci si ritrova in una cella per duecento anni. Ma l’uomo che potrebbe essere impazzito, e che decisamente dovrebbe essere morto, è di colpo tornato a essere molto importante…

Sono passate soltanto poche settimane da quando Nazafareen è fuggita dai sotterranei del Re con il suo daeva, Darius. Sperava di non dover mettere più piede all’interno dell’impero, ma la ricerca del Profeta l’ha condotta nell’antica città di Karnopolis. Devono trovarlo prima che Alexander di Macedonia bruci Persepolae, e con essa la madre di Darius. Ma non sono i soli a cercarlo.

Il negromante Balthazar ha i suoi piani per il Profeta, così come il capo delle spie dei Numeratori. Mentre Nazafareen viene attirata in un gioco pericoloso, i suoi nuovi poteri prendono una brutta piega. Soltanto il Profeta comprende il segreto del suo dono, ma il prezzo di quella conoscenza potrebbe rivelarsi più di quanto Nazafareen sia disposta a pagare…

«Kat Ross ha creato un mondo misterioso, ricco di fascino e magia, azione e colpi di scena. Una storia originale, epica, impossibile da dimenticare. Fatevi un favore: leggetelo!» (WONDERFUL MONSTER - IL BLOG DI ERIKA ZINI)

Persepolae è caduta.
Karnopolis è bruciata.

Mentre le forze oscure dei non-morti attraversano ciò che resta dell’impero, Nazafareen deve obbedire al richiamo della Regina dei demoni per salvare il padre di Darius, Victor. Oppressa da un potere che non comprende e che riesce a malapena a controllare, intraprende un pericoloso viaggio attraverso le terre dell’ombra verso la Casa-Dietro-Il-Velo. Ma ciò che la attende è peggiore di qualsiasi destino possa immaginare.

A migliaia di leghe di distanza, Tijah conduce un gruppo di bambini in una missione disperata per salvare i prigionieri di Gorgon-e Gaz, la roccaforte dove sono custoditi i daeva più antichi. Per arrivarci, devono attraversare la Great Salt Plain, una terra desolata invasa dagli eserciti della notte. Un incontro casuale fa aggiungere un fantasma del passato alle loro file. Ma arriveranno in tempo per evitare un massacro?

E nella Casa-Dietro-il-Velo, Balthazar e il Profeta Zarathustra scoprono di avere più cose in comune di quanto non potesse sembrare. Ma sarà sufficiente a salvare l’anima insanguinata del negromante e a sventare i piani della sua padrona?

Mentre lo scontro finale tra Alexander e la Regina Neblis ormai incombe, verrà rivelata la verità sulle origini dei daeva e tre mondi si scontreranno in questa elettrizzante conclusione della serie Il Quarto Elemento.

Vi consiglio di leggere e lasciarvi avvinghiare dalla nebbia, dal sole bruciante del deserto, dal paesaggio strano e inquietante della Great Salt Plain. Di viaggiare in ogni luogo, di tremare di terrore e piangere per la commozione. E di prestare attenzione come me alla voce cantilenante e antica di Zarathustra. (LES FLEURS DU MAL - BLOG)
