Morumus knows firsthand of the evil that lurks in the realm. At a tender young age, those of the Dark Faith destroyed the world as he knew it. Now as an adult, he is a devout monk and he has a very specific mission: translate the Holy Writ to the people who practice the Dark Faith. Thinking his task will be an easy one, he sets out to bring Light to those who are drowning in Darkness.
Embarking on the journey with him are two monks that are neither friend not foe. Eager to get his life's work finally started, Morumus is not expecting the obstacles he faces. Danger hides behind every bend, and it whispers to him from the trees. Who are these people of the Dark Faith that are constantly eluding capture? And if he is the only one that has seen their evil work that remains alive, what is his life worth?
This novel takes us to a land that could have existed in the past to a place we are curious about but never wish to visit. I really enjoyed this novel because I felt as if I was right alongside them fighting for the truth. The one thing I like the most about this story, is that not everybody had a happy ending. So many books now have trite, fluffy lives for everybody that always seem to work out, but Montgomery makes it true to the time period it could have been in and makes it as realistic as possible. I absolutely loved it.
