My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In the 4th installment of the Dragon Keeper Chronicles, Kale and Bardon must battle once again to save their country, their people, and for their's (and their people's) faith in Wulder. There are a lot of battles, a lot of loss, but through it all comes the story of hope.
I must say that this was the hardest book to read. There are several characters that are lost to death, and even at one moment where I just needed to put the book down to cry. But the theme of hope in the most hopeless situation, that healing can come even when you are at your most broken and the darkness is surrounding you still rings through. It also takes on a deeper thought about how our own faith in God can effect our leaders and our own country. Without faith and hope, we have nothing to keep us from falling into death (spiritually, mentally, and emotionally).
