The continuing adventures of Devin Everson are dark, gory, yet still inspiring. Confronted with his sister Adria’s new, potentially world-altering abilities, Devin must support her dream while protecting the innocent lives of Londheim. Conflicting with her role as acting Vikar of the Day Adria, his sister and an unlikely team of dragon-sired are on a mission that will either result in utter and complete devastation or be a blessing for the whole of humanity. Fighting humans, monsters, and divine forces, the Everson family moves through each challenge, striving to keep the Cradle from falling into oblivion. The bloodshed from each battle unveils more moral dilemmas that call into question everyone’s sense of faith, religious upbringing, and entire understanding of the world around them. Dalglish’s approach to this third book in the series (after Ravencaller) keeps the returning characters fresh, relevant, and impactful in their necessary roles to both uplift and restrict the responsibilities of the Chainbreaker.
VERDICT Recommended for readers with an interest in fantasy, fiction, magic, battle scenes, romance, and religiously driven moral debates.
