Embers at Dawn(2014)
(The fifth book in the Shadow Over Shandahar series)
A novel by T R Chowdhury and T M Crim
The Curse of Odion has lifted and a new age begun. But the shadows over Shandahar remain. In the wake of Aasarak's defeat, the remaining Wildrunners have disbanded, hoping to take a rest from their ordeals and pursue a new beginning. Homecoming has proved to be as difficult as any battle. Unable to cope with the pressures of everyday existence, Sirion breaks away from Adrianna's side. He returns to the free-roaming lifestyle he'd lived for so many years prior to their meeting, not realizing his mentality has been compromised. Meanwhile, the powerful lycan sire, Bordrigan, is on the prowl. For many years he has kept the Realm of Elvandahar in his sights, and he has finally chosen to make his move. In spite of his lycan-hunting prowess, Sirion is unaware of the great influence Bordrigan possesses, and is no match against the numbers he has amassed. Only Sirion's nemesis, Sydonnia, knows this enemy. At Sydonnia's behest, the Wildrunners come together once more in order to find Sirion before Bordrigan does. But the lycan are the least of their problems. A greater enemy awaits, one that has managed to remain hidden over the centuries . . . With some hidden reserve of energy, she trumpeted. The last time she did that, the strange, biped inhabitants of this world had come to her underground cavern. They had regarded her in awe and left. Latched onto every one of them was one of her offspring . . .
