Darkness Gathers Round brings the four-volume Epic of Karolan to its triumphant conclusion. Glowing with truly epic excitement, the story also holds startling emotional and spiritual depths. Here King Ilohan, followed by the greatest army any Karolan king has ever raised, rides into the desperate darkness of the Zarnith War. Unknown to Ilohan, Veril, maiden of the Cloth of Joy, intends to come from behind the Zarnith horde in a hopeless attempt to meet him before they both are killed. Events neither can predict sweep them onward to a climactic battle where their courage will be forever proved – or not. Far behind Veril, wounded Jonathan’s life hangs in the balance. His beloved Naomi, herself near death from sickness, would gladly give her life to save him. But even if Jonathan does recover physically, what have the wars and his bitter suffering done to his mind and heart? Will he – or Naomi – ever taste joy again? When the dust of war has settled, many questions remain. Can anyone live in hope and joy in a world where full victory is impossible? Those who endeavor to find an answer at any cost may wander on strange new journeys – and their quest may become the greatest adventure of all.
