"The depth of darkness to which you can descend and still live is an exact measure of the height to which you can aspire to reach."
- Gaius Plinius Secundus (Pliny the Eler)
After surviving two adventures on Metverold, Samuel Osmond is getting more comfortable in his role as the Lorekeeper, but he quickly learns that the Yfel can reach him anywhere. Hunted in his own world and out of option, Samuel has to flee to Metverold and seek shelter on his enemy's home turf.
But the safety he seeks still eludes him, as the legend Samuel must defend will take him to the darkest region of Greek mythology, and down in the deepest abysses of the Underworld. There, he will face the most terrifying foes he as encountered yet, and find out exactly how much courage courses through his veins.
This third book marks the midpoint in the Tales of the Lorekeepers series. Secrets are revealed, mysteries are unveiled, and more question arise, as Samuel gets closer to finding out the Yfel's true goal
