Blurb: Sam of Wilds faced the Dark wizard Myrin and lived to tell the tale. Granted, the battle left him scarred, but things could be a hell of a lot worse.
It’s not until he reunites with Morgan of Shadows and Randall that he realizes just how much worse things could be.
Because the scars have meaning and hint at Myrin’s true plans for Sam and the Kingdom of Verania.
With time running out, Sam and his band of merry misfits—the unicorn Gary, the half-giant Tiggy, Knight Commander Ryan Foxheart, and the dragon known as Kevin—must travel to the snowy mountains in the North and the heart of the Dark Woods to convince the remaining dragons to stand against Myrin. Along the way, Sam learns secrets of the past that will forever change the course of the future.
A reckoning is coming for Sam of Wilds, and there is nothing he can do to stop it.

Review: I wish I could give this book more than five stars as it deserve it. Sam of the Wilds is back in this addition with his merry band of friends. But what they face is a darkness so dark that if they can not defeat it terrible things will happen. Among the tasks are finding the Great White dragon. He is not easy to find and even harder still to convince him to help.
The prophecies of many come to a head in this exciting yet heartbreaking story of love, finding ones self and sacrifice. Learning a lesson is not always easy especially when it deals with the possibility of losing someone you love. That could not be truer in this story. I balled my eyes out when the unthinkable happened.
I love this series so much. I love the seriousness, the adventures, antics and the humor that culminate to make an extraordinary series. This story took me by surprise at the end of it. It was a loss and hope I felt keenly. I am on pins and needles awaiting the next book to see what else happens.
Awesome story that I highly recommend.
