Persepolae has fallen.
Karnopolis has burned.
As the dark forces of the Undead sweep across what remains of the empire, Nazafareen must obey the summons of a demon queen to save Darius’s father, Victor. Burdened with a power she doesn’t understand and can barely control, Nazafareen embarks on a perilous journey through the shadowlands to the House-Behind-the-Veil. But what awaits her there is worse than she ever imagined…
A thousand leagues away, Tijah leads a group of children on a desperate mission to rescue the prisoners at Gorgon-e Gaz, the stronghold where the oldest daēvas are kept. To get there, they must cross the Great Salt Plain, a parched ruin occupied by the armies of the night. A chance encounter adds a ghost from the past to their number. But will they arrive in time to avert a massacre?
And in the House-Behind-the-Veil, Balthazar and the Prophet Zarathustra discover that they have more in common than meets the eye. But is it enough to redeem the necromancer’s bloodstained soul and thwart his mistress’s plans?
As a final showdown looms with Queen Neblis, the truth of the daēvas’ origins is revealed and three worlds collide in this thrilling conclusion to the Fourth Element series.
In the third and final book in the Fourth Element series, it's time for Nazafareen to face Queen Neblis. It's the final showdown, the stakes are higher than ever and Nazafareen finally finds out how powerful she trully is.
One more thing that is revealed is the origins of daevas. Kat Ross managed to create this amazing world where every single thing is described with such detail, which makes it such a unique story.
As far as Nazafareen and Darius are concerned, I am not going to reveal anything but let's just say that their story ends the way it's supposed to be!
I absolutely loved the Fourth Element series! I hope that there might be another novel or series with different characters such as Tijah, Balthazar and Lysandros, who were all essential to the series. The story was beautifully written with so many twists that made me read the entire series in almost four days! All in all, it was an epic journey and I can't wait to read Kat Ross's next work!
