Our song fades. Our children perish. Our world, a land torn between day and night, runs red with blood.

For countless years, Moth has been frozen still, one half drenched in eternal daylight, the other cloaked in endless night. For countless years, the soldiers of sunlight and the dwellers of darkness have lived in isolation.

Now we kill. Now we die.

We are the children of Moth. We were born in sunlight or in shadow. We can stop the fire, or we can watch our world burn. This is our story.

This final book of the Moth saga sees the end to the war between light and day. Overall, it was a decent conclusion to the Moth story line. It had a bit more depth, action, and excitement than the last book. There were a few surprises, some better developed cultures, some strong characters, and some better stakes. But on the other hand, Serin and Madori just seemed like flat, predictable characters. I actually found Torin and a few other characters to be doing better jobs of carrying the story than our main protagonist and antagonist. I didn’t find it to be very believable that the entire sunlit realm would instantly support Serin or that many of their leaders would make irrational decisions. And any words that came from a Timaradian, especially Serin, were just plain tiring.

Now as to my thoughts on the whole series… it started out with much, much promise. But eventually devolved into Timandra invading Eloria over and over. Sure, things are resolved now but there is no hope of it not happening again. The ultimate thing would have been the world set spinning again and everyone killing theirselves off as they are all really disgusting people with no redeeming qualities. In fact, I would think if there were another book it would begin with Timandra invading Eloria again.
