At last, the conclusion to the compelling Shamer Chronicles. While Davin and Dina struggle to come to terms with their traumatic experiences, their friend Nico runs off on a suicide mission to kill the evil usurper Drakan. Dana, still mourning her dead father, feels compelled to choose between the magical abilities she inherited from her Blackmaster father and her beloved Shamer mother. Meanwhile, Davin is captured by Drakan, who alternately tortures and tempts Davin in an attempt to make the boy into a shameless villain like himself. To defeat Drakan and save both Nico and the world, the siblings must find the balance between shame and self-hatred, between independence and friendless solitude. Despite pat solutions to some plot threads, a thought-provoking conclusion to a worthwhile series. (Fantasy. 10-14) (Kirkus Reviews)
