‘The mighty Glass warrior. He had misused the Demon Crown and plunged the kingdom into a civil war so intense that it beggared description.’
The third and final instalment of the gripping, Demon Crown trilogy.
Santon and Vered have found Lorens’ twin sister, Lokenna. She, with royal blood, is the last chance of hope in the now, all but totally destroyed kingdom or Porotane.
They find her working as a barmaid under her oafish, feeble-minded husband, Bane Pandasso. A timid and passive woman who leads a simple life. Not a queen yet…
With the aid of the stolen Demon Crown, Lokenna is transformed from the diffident wife that Pandosso had known into a mighty and fair queen. She can see!
The band of travellers moves stealthily between vying rebel militias and royalist armies, all out to kill them and reclaim the crown for themselves.
Meanwhile, Lorens, in lacking the powerful Demon Crown, has been chased from the castle and now moves with his armies in search of the Vered and Santon, whom he believes possess what he seeks.
When Lorens and Lokenna meet, the new queen convinces her twin brother to help them gain safe passage back to the castle. However, she is betrayed by her weak husband, Pandosso who attempts to bargain with the corrupt king.
Locked in the castle dungeon, the fellowship have only one choice; to seek out the powerful and mysterious Wizard of Storms, Kaga’klab.
