Brave explorers and mortal enemies across the world clash on a mysterious lost continent. After long voyages, encountering hurricanes and sea monsters, Criston Vora and Saan race to Terravitae, the legendary promised land. Saan’s quest is to find the Key to Creation, a weapon that may defeat Uraba’s enemies. And Criston wants vengeance against the monstrous Leviathan that ruined his life long ago.

Back home, two opposing continents and religions clash for the remnants of a sacred city, unleashing their hatred in a war that could end both civilizations. Queen Anjine and Soldan-Shah Omra are driven by mutual hatred, heaping atrocity upon atrocity in an escalating conflict that only their gods can end.

Meanwhile, the secretive Saedrans are manipulating both sides, coming ever closer to their ultimate goal: to complete the Map of All Things and bring about the return of God.

Listener Opinions

    " The dramatic conclusion to the series. Cristan and Saan are battling all sorts of dangers and their own crews in their search for Terravitae. Istar has a surprise from her some village after 20 years living with the enemy. It looks like the 'Hooks are coming out on top in the never ending war but will they ultimately come out on top? Fanatics on both sides may be in for some nasty surprises as the book reaches its conclusion... "

    " Some interesting characters and interesting enough world, but as am writing this review after finishing all 3 books I have to give the whole series a 3.0 "meh" review. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Misty | 1/16/2014

    " This definitely tied up all the loose ends. It seemed somewhat forced and trite but all in all a great series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Pigott | 12/30/2013

    " Excellent epic story, very complex, and a satisfying and beautiful ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzie | 12/11/2013

    " Not as good as the second, in my opinion, but a pretty good end to the trilogy. Saedrans were gettin' on my nerves, though. And several things that were supposed to be pretty huge twists were pretty obvious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 12/8/2013

    " everything gets wrapped up in a nice, tidy package...too tidy perhaps. a decent series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirk | 12/8/2013

    " I guess it was clear by book 3 that this story required a deus ex machina ending. that doesn't render it any more satisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 9/28/2013

    " Nice but using to cultures to sub for the West and the Islamic World. Very good story line otherwise fun to read and covers a lot of exploring the world and god/monster issues with traveling in small wood boats the great big wide world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donnelle | 9/26/2013

    " Eh. Found it hard to care about any of the characters. "

    " Perfect end to an excellent trilogy. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Keith Blair | 7/20/2013

    " Didn't finish it, I liked the first two books but I couldn't get into this one. The gaint sea monster that "wraps around the world" kind of killed it for me. I'm disappoint that I didn't like this one because I really enjoy the whole holy war storyline in the first two books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aahzmandius | 2/1/2013

    " Awesome conclusion to this series about religious warfare. I loved the split world feeling of watching events unfold from many different perspectives, then coming to a single point for the climax. Thanks, Mr. Anderson, for a great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 7/12/2012

    " A lengthy read, just as the previous books. It just seems like Anderson had to rush at to tie up all the ends in this book. I was a little disappointed in the resolutions of some of the stories, but overall a good series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tru3b4llin | 5/26/2012

    " not a very satisfying/persuasive ending but an ending nonetheless "
