Bones jutted from the sand at
angles—not odd angles, though, for that would suggest that there
were
ways bones could protrude that made sense—and the eyes of those still living
stared and saw nothing.
 

Amidst a scene of carnage on a desert battlefield blanketed
in metallic snow, Major Konowa Swift Dragon sees his future, and it is one
drenched in shadow and blood. Never mind that he has won a grand victory for
the Calahrian Empire. He came here in search of his lost regiment of elves,
while the Imperial Prince came looking for the treasures of a mystical library,
and both ventures have failed. But Konowa knows, as do the Iron Elves—both
living and dead—that another, far more important battle now looms before them.
The campaign in the desert was only the latest obstacle on the twisted,
darkening path leading inexorably to the Hyntaland, and the final confrontation
with the dreaded Shadow Monarch. 

In this third novel of musket and magic in Chris Evans’s
Iron Elves saga, Konowa’s ultimate journey is fraught with escalating danger. A
vast, black forest finds a new source of dark power, spawning creatures even
more monstrous than the blood trees from which they evolve. The maniacally
unstable former emissary of the Shadow Monarch hungers for revenge, leading an
army of ravenous beasts bent on utterly destroying the Iron Elves. A reluctant
hero, Private Alwyn Renwar, struggles to maintain his connection to this world
and that of the loyalty of the shades of the dead. And in a maze of underground
tunnels, Visyna Tekoy, whom Konowa counts among those he has loved and lost,
fights for her life against the very elves he so desperately wants to find. 

And
so Konowa sets off from this Canyon
of Bones, pursuing his
freedom from a curse that has cast his life in darkness. For though his long,
violent trek may indeed lead him to his destiny, he is ill prepared for the
discovery he will make . . . with the fate of the Iron Elves, and the world,
hinging on the courage of one wrathful elf.
