Rowen Locke has won the battle. But from the shadows comes an ancient enemy - a calculating and merciless foe who has been waiting centuries for the chance to strike. Despite all he has already suffered and sacrificed, Rowen finds himself mired in a war bigger and more terrible than anything he could have imagined.
The world's only hope lies in Knightswrath, whose hard-won powers he has only begun to understand, let alone control. Calling upon unlikely new allies, Rowen must raise an army to defeat the vengeful Dragonkin before everything he loves becomes a smoldering ruin.

"Manual on how to butcher a Good Story"
There are so many things wrong with this last book of the Dragonkin trilogy that its hard to list them all but I shall try.
1. Mistakes in the story. For example One moment a character is sitting and then the next line is: takes a step towards.
2. To much focus on minor story lines and inner monologue and not enough dedication to the main story.
3. The Most useless and whingy Hero it has been my misfortune to read about.
4. The ending leaves you wondering if someone cut 500 pages out of the book and didn't tell you about it.
5. To many repetitive explanations. How many times do we have to know a certain fact before we understand that its an important fact.
6: No Character evolvement. Rather more character Devolvement. The Rowen in this last book is a boring 2 dimensional character that you really dont care what happens too.
Michael Meyerhofer is a great writer. Yes, it seems odd for me to say this but he is. I have no idea what went wrong with books 2 and 3 of the Dragonkin Trilogy because book one was a well built universe and persona gallery with only minor annoyances.
Craig Beck did a great job on the Narration. Cadence and volume seems good.
Im sad to say..No..
I will keep my eye on Micheal Meyerhofer in the hopes he will grow into his own and that we will some time in the future have a Fantasy writer that he gave us the hope he was in Watchfire (Book one of this Trilogy)
Too many fight scenes left out, what the hell man. you had room for 4 or five good books, the ending sucked a big one.
This story started off well, but the characters never fully developed. The author needs to learn how to let a lead character develop in the story which never happened. The lead character "Loke" irritated me the whole story. He just fumbled around from one mess up to another which makes it unbelievable that he didn't get killed off from the beginning. And the end of the trilogy, snoozer. What a waste of three credits.
the final book of this trilogy felt very rushed unfortunately. From the beginning you could sense that there could have been 2 more books explaining the more of the story in detail. Very sad to see something that started so great end like this.
"Amazing conclusion to the series"
Never been a fantasy book reader in the past but this series has had me totally hooked. Craig Beck does a great job of bringing the conclusion of Rowan Locke's journey to an exciting end
"impressive at every level"
enjoyed more than I expected. interesting magic, violent societies, no one has clean hands making all characters love and hateable. good stuff throughout all three books.
