About the Author
Will Wight lives in Florida, among the citrus fruits and slithering sea creatures. He's the author of the Amazon best-selling Traveler’s Gate Trilogy, The Elder Empire (which cleverly offers twice the fun and twice the work), and his newest series of mythical martial arts magic: Cradle.
He graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2013, earning a Master’s of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and a flute of dragon’s bone. He is also, apparently, invisible to cameras.

Without giving anything away, I really enjoyed the entire cadence of this book. There were exciting twists and quite a few surprises, and it ended well. There is not much to say beyond that. I enjoyed this book immensely, and I highly recommend it to any fan of Will Wight and any follower of the Elder Empire series. You will not be disappointed!
Worth the wait-absolutely; but also, only possible because of the wait. This book would have been a different book I think, had it been released right after Of Darkness and Dawn. Still good no doubt, but not this. Thank you Will. The ride has been worth it.
I'm a big fan of Will Wight. I'd say he's easily one of the best young writers in the fantasy genre today and his taking on this dual novel -dual perspective series is evidence of his ability. He contrasts two opposing characters in a happy-go-lucky rogue and a politically-employed assassin. Using these different archetypical fantasy roles as viewpoints for the same events is a much more fun and interesting reading experience than I expected. What was most interesting was this final set of novels.
I loathe the Shera character. She seems to reflect the modern infatuation with the antihero, as a completely sociopathic professional killer. To Wight's credit, he does inject her with a strong apathetic streak to lighten it up a bit but as the series progresses, the books focusing on her become the more interesting...especially with these final two.
Calder is a fun character whose progresses from a Han Solo style roguishness to an almost Jacques Clouseau bumbling goof. It was disappointing as the series progressed how much his story seemed to take a back seat to events while Shera's remained strongly character driven. But Wight is one of the few fantasy writers who keeps things "up", so Shera was probably more interesting for him as well. Ultimately, the series brings both viewpoints together in a redemptive conclusion that leaves the door open for more. This isn't my favorite of Wight's worlds, but I enjoyed the visit and would happily return if he takes this series any further.
In one series you follow Captain Calder Marten and in the other story ARC, you're getting Shera's POV! Both characters are deadly serious about stopping the Elder Gods... but they're polar opposites on how to go about doing that... and oh yeah, they're Bitter enemies. The few times their paths cross, you get a whole new perspective, and I guarantee you won't be bored! All that takes some awesome writing chops, so thank you Will Wight!
Emily Woo Zeller gave a simply stellar performance as the narrator of this book! Check out some of her other works available on Audible!
