This third volume of the epic fantasy series, The Crusade Against Darkness, picks up where The Birth of Malgyron left off. Now that a new king has come to rule and the Age of Darkness has officially begun, everything is going perfectly according to plan for the Evil One. For even as a rival kingdom falls to the evil that has arisen, conditions in Mavinor quickly deteriorate under the new regime. The few heroes who managed to survive the onset of darkness are forced to come together and somehow figure out how they can restore light to the world. But the more they learn, the more they realize it may already be too late. All seems lost when one of their best men abandons the cause, but as other unlikely heroes begin to emerge and dissension grows among the ranks of evil, a ray of hope begins to shine in the darkness. When the forces of good finally mobilize in an attempt to reclaim Mavinor, they realize that they cannot afford to fail in their crusade or the world as they once knew it will be gone forever.
