Klappentext

Very highly recommended by Science Fiction Review, this second book in the Coldfire trilogy follows Black Sun Rising. A high-action novel of discovery and battle on a planet where a magical force of nature has the power to prey upon the human mind. A warrior priest and a sorcerer--absolute enemies--must unite to conquer this growing evil.

Zusammenfassung
Two men, absolute enemies, must unite to conquer an evil greater than anything their world has ever known. One is a warrior priest ready to sacrifice anything and everything for the cause of humanity's progress; the other, a sorcerer who has survived for countless centuries by a total submission to evil. In their joint quest, both will be irrevocably changed.

When True Night Falls is the sequel to C. S. Friedman's acclaimed Black Sun Rising.
