At the Maze, Queteb stands victorious over the body of Caelum SunSoar yet boiling with anger that the true Enemy Reborn, the Starson, has escaped destruction. With his unholy army of demon-corrupted men and beasts around him Queteb begins the search for the only man who can now defeat him. Bound to the temporary safety of the cave of Sanctuary, the survivors of Tencendor mourn the loss of Caelum and struggle to come to terms with the traitorous Drago's true identity. Now, as DragonStar the StarSon, Drago must prepare the unwilling Tencendorians for Queteb's onslaught. But treachery from within the SunSoar family itself threatens to undermine Drago's new-found powers and will prove fatally decisive in the final battle for Tencendor.Read Less
My brother introduced me to the series with the Wayfarer Redemption. Although I was new to the genre, I was immediately hooked and sought out all the remaining titles right away. Unlike other series I am now reading, I found this one to be the right mix of action, romance and storytelling. It also has a more optimistic feel than some of the gloom and doom tales, even when they are surely facing destruction, which helped me keep reading and not just give up in despair. The glossary of terms and characters at the back of each book is also helpful. If you like this kind of fantasy the Wayfarer series will surely draw you in and hold your attention all the way.
Publishers Weekly, 2006-02-20 At the start of Douglass's powerful conclusion to her Wayfarer Redemption saga (after 2005's Pilgrim), the surviving people of Tencendor have taken refuge in Sanctuary, where they are under siege by star-traveling demons, the TimeKeepers. When treason threatens the resistance, DragonStar, the swordswoman Faraday and other fighters leave Sanctuary in an effort to defeat their opponents through attrition rather than pitched battle. Along the way, the defenders confront any number of knotty ethical dilemmas. Faraday resolves the ambiguities of her feelings for DragonStar, and a host of secondary characters (headed by DragonStar's father, Axis) all play roles that most long-standing readers of this complex fantasy series will find satisfying. Given the large cast and a narrative broken into many short scenes, a glossary is particularly useful, even for those with a good grasp of the backstory.
