Zaya faces a terrifying new reality.
Morgomoth has trapped her in a sleeping curse, and Zaya’s soul has been dragged into the nightmarish underworld of the Dark Divide—a place of endless, shifting tunnels filled with lost, raging ghosts.
There is only one way out. A door that, if opened, will unleash the Dark Divide into the living world.
Morgomoth has given Zaya a choice. Open the door, join him and his evil forces, or remain trapped for eternity.
Zaya must do the impossible. Escape from the Dark Divide, save Jad and her friends from Morgomoth's horrors on the world, and learn to defeat him using necromancy.
But it won’t come without sacrifices… or betrayal.
- my review
- a few notes
This book was incredibly atmospheric, the descriptions dragging the reader into the story and keeping them there, enthralled. Zaya’s soul has been trapped in the underworld, and the author created this setting like something out of my nightmares. A maze of damp and mildewy tunnels, populated by vengeful spirts… horrifying!
There are so many twists and turns in this book, and it was a deeply intense read as Zaya struggles to fight against Morgomoth and save not only her friends but the world itself. There is so much action, along with a lot of political intrigue, not to mention plenty of magic.
A great read to get lost in!
