Book III of Loremasters of Elendium. Krulshards the Master of Darkness lies dead, his nightbeast armies destroyed. But there is sorrow in victory as King Holbian, entrusting Thane with his kingdom, goes to his rest at last.  King Thane returns with Elionbel as his bride to the new-built Granite City, bidding the people to return to their homes.  But the warning colours of Nevian’s magician’s cloak will not fade, which indicates  an uneasy peace. Where are those unhappy warriors who rejected the Candleman’s son as king?  Who can explain the new-grown trees that loom menacingly at the Greenway’s edge? And what is the deadly secret Elionbel refuses to divulge as a terrible shadowlight swirls across Elendium?
