This is book two of The Wall of Night.
Protected by the Nine Houses of the Derai, the Wall of Night is all that separates the people of Haarth from the Darkswarm.
Five years have passed since the wall was breached, the Keep of Winds nearly overrun and Mailan and Kalan went missing
Now, in the diverse southern realms, rumors of dark forces and dark magic are growing. As the great midsummer tournament approaches, there will be one opportunity to band together or be lost forever.
The world building is mystical, there’s a prophesy involved, and the story is filled with strange magic, dark treachery and purpose. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
