The final installment of the Seven Forges series from James A Moore
File Under: Fantasy [ Last Stand | The Battle Persists | Rising Enemy | Cold Front ]
The Overlords have risen!
They’ve torn apart the Wellish Steppes and raised mountains, they’re fighting against the gods themselves, attacking the Daxar Taaalor and bringing the wrath of the Children of the Forges. They’ve turned one of the greatest sorcerers in the history of Fellein to their side and divided the council of wizards, forcing Desh Krohan into battle with old allies. The empire is at war.
The Sa’ba Taalor are preparing for battle, and the Overlords have begun their own plans, raising an army of shapechangers called the War-Born to do their bidding. The armies of the Overlords are savage, they hunt, kill and eat their prey. They are endlessly hungry.
The final war is on, one that will change the shape of the Fellein Empire. Even as the gods involve themselves in the final confrontations between the empire and the enemies, old and new.

PRAISE FOR JAMES A. MOORE
“Fantasy does not get much better than this.”
– Morpheus Tales
“James A. Moore keeps getting better. The cast of characters expands. Moore juggles them with ease, giving each one some background so that they don’t all run together. And the battle scenes, whether it’s individual combat or armies clashing, are riveting. Plus the intrigue keeps on getting more complex. This is one is highly recommended.” – Adventures Fantastic
“The prose is sharp, the pace wonderfully timed with great action tempered with some wonderful lulls to allow you to get your breath back. Back this up with some great characters alongside a world that is delightfully designed all round makes this a series that continues to go from strength to strength. Finally, and this is the clincher for me, Moore gives the characters a depth with their dialogue that not only shows their devotions but also gives them a roundedness that allows you to become fully immersed. Cracking.” – Falcata Times
“I need more stories set in this world. Please indulge me, Mr Moore.” – Fantasy Book Review
“A strong instalment with no shortage of action.” – The Speculative Herald
“I love this series, I will not lie about it. It has ALL the things that make a great fantasy read.” – Shelf Inflicted
