The Light bore her.
The Earth whittled her.
The Air swayed her.
The Water cleansed her.
The Fire renewed her.
And after thirteen lifetimes, her blood still condemns her…
As the final battle between her ancient enemies and her kin rages around her, Ren must decide if it will be her first great love, or the great man who has loved her since the first, who will sacrifice their last life on Earth to bring the truth to light to save a world teetering on the brink of eternal darkness.
This second installment of The Rosefire Trilogy by Ky Lehman: a series created for all young adults at heart, answers many of the questions raised in Book 1, THE 13TH DESCENT, as the individual battles of Ren, Josh, Mike and the Tor all come to a head as they wage their final war against humankind’s greatest threat.
Ren also must cross swords with the traitorous Tor Princess, Avira, who is determined to claim Mike as her own, so they can live, and forget, together under the Bloodstones dictatorship of the new world: a darkness Ren and The 13th Brigade will fight until their last breath to save Mike, Josh, and the people of Earth from enduring.
We have killed before. But it has always been in self-defence, when there was no other way. For as long as I can remember, those not draped in the protection of the Bloodstones red
cloaks have been threatened. Belittled. Persecuted. Imprisoned. Demonised. Raped. Tortured. Crucified. Burned at the stake. Murdered in unimaginable and sadistic ways. Have had war waged upon them; their homes destroyed and their territories left in rack and ruin. Their loved ones exiled, in this world and the next.
And now they are trying to poison us...
All the while, we have been treating this gangrenous limb with internal medicine when, as soon as we had the tools, we should have just amputated it.
So, I am justifying my next actions as self-defence... And I will keep hacking away until I hold their diseased heart in the palm of my hand.
