About THE DESCENT
The epic story of love and loss, magic and destiny that began with The Taker and sparked a chase around the world in The Reckoning comes to a surprising conclusion in THE DESCENT (Gallery Books; On-sale:January 7, 2014; Trade Paperback Original; $16.00)
Lanore McIlvrae has been on the run from Adair for hundreds of years, dismayed by his mysterious powers and afraid of his violent—even murderous—temper. She betrayed Adair’s trust and imprisoned him behind a stone wall to save Jonathan, the love of her life. When Adair was freed 200 years later, she was sure that he would find her and make her existence a living hell. But things turned out far different than she had imagined.
Four years later, Lanore has tracked Adair to his mystical island home, where he has been living in self-imposed exile, to ask for a favor. She wants Adair to send her to the hereafter so she may beg the Queen of the Underworld to release Jonathan, whom she has been keeping as her consort.
Will Lanore honor her promise to Adair to return? Or is her intention to reunite with Jonathan at any cost?
A compelling conclusion to an acclaimed series, THE DESCENT shows that of all forces of the universe, the most mysterious, confounding, and humbling is the power of love.
