In this long-awaited finale to the Dormia trilogy, the dreaded nursery rhyme comes to life at last as a dark shadow tree threatens to cause the worlds end. And who will stop it? Alfonso is now an ageling, Resuza and Hill are slaves, Bilblox appears to be a traitor, and Leif is shipwrecked on the edge of a forbidding forest. An ancient prophecy states that the tree can be destroyed, but the price must be paid in blood, and whoever tries faces certain death. Nonetheless, a hero must journey northward, across the great polar expanse, to Dargora the mythical city built of ice and human bones and make the sacrifice before its too late.All hope rests with a hooded girl, trudging her way through miles of desolate land. She walks slowly, carefully, methodically. Every so often, she stops to listen. She senses that she is being followed, but she is more concerned with the contents of her backpack. Nestled inside is a newborn baby, and he must be protected. He is all that matters. Soon the world will be as lifeless as the ground she is walking on, and only her charge can change the course of fate.Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski are co-authors of the Dormia trilogy. They met in the wind-swept desert of the Middle East many years ago, and told a lot of stories. Thankfully, their families allow them to continue telling stories, starting with the Dormia trilogy and continuing with their latest project, Nightfall. Peter is a U.S. diplomat, currently working as Consul General in Calgary. Jake is a contributor to the New Yorker and his latest story, The Secrets of the Temple, is being developed into a movie by the producers at Heyday Films, who also made the Harry Potter movies.
