Format: Hardcover
Darkness Shall Fall is the third book in The Aedyn Chronicles Trilogy.

I found the story interesting enough to keep reading to the end, because I wanted to find out what happened to the characters. Unfortunately, I did not read the first two books in the trilogy, so some of the back story was not there for me coming into this book. The book was done well enough that I was able to follow the story, though.

The book is the story of Louisa, Peter and Julia and an adventure they are having in the world of Aedyn, having left their "melded" family back on Earth. A volcano has erupted and a shadow covers the world of Aedyn. Their mission is to overcome the shadow and restore Aedyn to the rule of the Lord of Hosts.

It was entertaining enough to keep me going. There were two spots in the book where the author leaves the third person telling and goes into a short (2 or 3 paragraphs) second person telling, in something of a preachy style, which was jarring to the flow of the narrative.

The change to the kids' family when they arrive back home is dramatic but not entirely convincing in the way that it happens. But a good ending to the tale.

This was a Goodread/First Reads book.

Format: Paperback
It's been two months since the volcano erupted, releasing a strange, evil power from deep within the earth, and Peter, Julia, and Louisa find themselves trapped alongside the people of Aedyn. Worse, neither Peter nor Julia knows how to lead the people home, and Louisa's plan for freedom results only in anxiety. As the power surrounding the Shadow grows, a stranger arrives claiming to be a messenger of the Lord of Hosts. Peras promises to get everyone to safety, but his presence leaves the siblings wondering whom to really trust. In this dramatic conclusion to the Aedyn Chronicles trilogy, Peter, Julia, and Louisa must decide whether to fight for what they know to be true, even when the fight seems hopeless. Can Peter and Julia lead the revolution, and will Louisa find the courage to face her own destiny?

I thought this book was well written and I really enjoyed it. I didnt like volcanos before and I really dont like them now!!!!I would like to read more from this author. Not extremely easy to follow, since I do read alot of young adult, but I kept up and really enjoyed it...A different story line and I am definately going to let my Mother in Law borrow!!!!

Format: Hardcover
The previous book in The Aedyn Chronicles had a rather abrupt ending, so as expected Darkness Shall Fall picks up shortly after the events of Flight of the Outcasts. The people of Aedyn escaped from slavery only to find themselves hiding from the Gul'nog and waiting for the Lord of Hosts to deliver them. However, overwhelmed by constant fear and with little to eat, their wait has been long. When a stranger, Peras, claiming to be sent from the Lord of Hosts arrives everyone is relieved and overjoyed--everyone by Louisa who insists he will betray them. Desperate to help the people return to Aedyn and longing for their own home in London, Peter and Julia once again must not only face external dangers, but the danger from within themselves.

Throughout this series, I have been pleased with the spiritual lessons presented. However, when the opening chapter of this book started by presenting a popular `scientific' reason for the extinction of the dinosaurs, I wasn't real sure I was going to be able to continue to agree with the spiritual teaching. As it turns out, this opening actually lays an excellent foundation for an important spiritual theme for both Peter and the reader to contemplate--logic vs. faith.

Darkness Shall Fall is the best of the series in my opinion. It's darker than the previous two books and is a little bit more detailed in depicting violence, though it is still acceptable for the target audience. The suspense is better maintained and for a longer period of time. Also, the writing that has had a gentle, endearing tone takes on a more mature, straightforward voice. It makes the book feel a little out of place within the series, but this change is part of what makes this the strongest of the three.
