The final book in The Dark Trilogy finds Noah in his early days as a paladin. He aids Miles in searching for something that will impact his present and the future. He will encounter the Nephilim for the first time, and a tragic event will propel him toward the Dark Side. Leigh's story continues, as Noah's past affects her present. Her power grows stronger when she travels to Paris at Miles' request, and she must battle the Dark Side to save someone she loves. Soon, she will discover that a legacy can be extinguished as easily as a flame.
