In this last chapter of the Exalted Trilogy, Mena and her friends discover the meaning of freedom and the costs to keep it.
With Mena's parents and friends missing, she and Ryker set out on a journey to find them and to warn the people of Toledo Lake about the imminent threat of retaliation from the First Republic. Things don't go as planned, and Mena struggles to stay strong through all of her emotional perils.
New friendships form. Old friendships fade. War will do that to people—even the strongest of people.
Will Toledo Lake survive the wrath of Dr. Fredericks and his army? Will the Third Republic join in the attack?
Strength be with you, Mena.
