Lucifer’s daughter is leaving the orc tunnels to challenge Jon in person but enemies nearer at hand are already plotting his downfall. Karen has also decided to take a more direct route to stopping Jacob seeing their sons and no longer thinks twice at using the children themselves as her weapon against him, in the belief it will be best for them in the end. Jon and Jacob will have to fight to save their friends and family but, if the only way to fight fire is with fire, does it justify fighting evil with evil?
Sometimes the price of victory is too high, but what is the alternative? And even when success is almost within grasp all is not as it seems.
As Jon leads his pursuers to a place that was lost, the real nature of his enemies will be revealed. As the ancient halls are again filled with power, they are at a turning point. Time has finally run out and Fate watches in the knowledge that all of us have a time to live.
And a time to die…
