This is book number 4 in the Shamer Chronicles series.
The spellbinding final volume of the Shamer Chronicles
The Dragon Lord of Dunark is ruthlessly hunting down Shamers and burning them at the stake. He "must" be brought down, and so a rebellion is formed.
Rebellions need leaders, and what better choice than the legitimate heir to Dunark, Dina's friend Nico? Nico is reluctant to kill even a rabbit. Still, Dina's considerable powers should help him triumph over the Dragon Lord. But Nico knows only too well that heroes have a nasty habit of ending up dead . . .
“A superb novel in its own right, and a fitting conclusion to the riveting Shamer Chronicles.” —School Library Journal
