The vengeful Darkwing has determined opponents in Gardep the warrior, Cusha the slave-girl, and Vishtar the captive. Each has embarked on a quest to fulfil their destiny. But is anyone equipped to defeat the demon lord, especially as the cruel sun sets, beckoning a devastatingly relentless winter? In Rise of the Blood Moon and its gripping sequel Setting of a Cruel Sun, award-winning author Alan Gibbons has written a sweeping epic of mighty battles, betrayals, broken promises, and secrets revealed.
