Having lost her gift of chantment, 18-year-old Calwyn returns home to Antaris to find a darkness over the land. The dying High Priestess passes on to her the secret lore of the dark magic and sends Calwyn on a mission to find the Wheel of the Tenth Power and use it to mend the sickness in the fabric of the universe. Calwyn would love to come home and hide in the world she grew up in, but it is no longer safe, and she cannot sit by and watch the world she loves die in an endless winter. At its heart, this is a story of taking responsibility, of finding strength even when you think you’ve lost it all. This satisfying conclusion to The Chanters of Tremaris trilogy will enthrall readers with its well-defined world, characters to cheer on, vivid prose and lessons to ponder. The two-page map helps bring the imaginary land alive, and readers will welcome this final journey with Calwyn and her companions. (Fiction. 12+)
