‘Expertly wrought . . . a vigorous, bravura saga’ Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Warfare, myth and magic collide in Legacy of Light, the spectacular conclusion to Matthew Ward’s acclaimed Legacy trilogy.

For the first time in many years, the Tressian Republic and the Hadari Empire are at peace. But war never sleeps.

In Tregard, Empress Melanna Saranal struggles to protect a throne won at great cost.

In Tressia, Lord Protector Viktor Droshna pursues forbidden power to restore all he’s lost.

As the sins of the past are once more laid bare, every road leads to war. Darkness gathers, alliances shatter and one final battle looms. What hope remains, lies within the light.

This is the first epic fantasy book I've enjoying getting immersed in for ages . . . a great romp in a brilliantly realised setting . . . I have lost sleep, forgotten food and made this the thing I pick up every moment I can get

Expertly wrought . . . Ward breathes new life into familiar tropes while convincingly manoeuvering his huge cast to universally satisfying conclusions. The result is a vigorous, bravura saga
