But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
Artemi's desire to protect those she loves has resulted in catastrophe - a catastrophe that would knock the strongest stuff from any warrior - and it may now fall to others to do the right thing. Unfortunately for the fate of all worlds, each and every one of those others will have their own ideas about what that right thing is.
Volume 6 of The Fireblade Array
In the Darkworld, the peace of nine nations rests upon the shoulders of a man with shadows in his mind, ice in his bones and emptiness in his heart. A hefty price must be paid and more than one battle won if he is to succeed.
And in The Crux, Silar is trapped like a rat in a pipe - a follocking bright, lifeless pipe with trees in it. He must find a way to right a wrong he once failed to prevent, but the only way is forward, and the more he sees of it, the more that way begins to look increasingly unpalatable.
The Voices of Blaze speak their words of advice, but will they bring help or harm?
In Hestavos, a vile business awaits the attention of our heroes. Union is essential if they are to set things right, but that union may cause problems of its own.
Artemi's decisions of her previous lives will not be without their consequences, and fortune will not provide her with an easy tool with which to deal with them.
