Destroying the portals between worlds was supposed to force the entity out of Rale. Instead, it’s trapped him there.
This has cut Nolost off from much of his power, buying some time to try to stop him from annihilating the world. Dante and Blays’ last hope lies in finding someone or something called the Burdan rah Saylan. Knowing nothing about the Burdan except for their name, they travel far to the east into lands they’ve never heard of.
There, they discover that the Burdan are a secret order founded by a god thousands of years ago. They wield the mithir, an unknown form of sorcery developed to kill Beyonders, whom Nolost is using as his army—and this power might even be able to kill Nolost himself.
Training in the mithir might well kill them. But with all other hopes exhausted, Dante, Blays, and Gladdic race to harness its power before the entity can finish bringing Rale to its end.
But the entity’s been hunting them all along. He knows what they’ve been doing. And he means to kill them before they’ve gained the strength to fight back.
The Shattered Path is the second-to-last book in the Cycle of Galand.
