Now Turtledove returns to the story of a World War in a world where magic works, with this moving second volume. Algarvian soldiers corral Kaunians to send them west, towards Unkerlant, to work camps. The Kaunians left behind are worried about what the work camps might mean, but are assuaged by Algarvian lies.

In Kuusamo, scholars race to find the relation between the laws of similarity and contagion. Rumors abound about the Algarvian work camps, rumors most cannot believe as true. But the mages know, for they can feel the loss of life in their very souls.

Turtledove's cast of characters in Darkness Descending takes on its own life as the reader sees the war from all sides and understands how the death and destruction benefits no one, not even the victors.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Darkness Descending

One
Tealdo slogged west across what seemed an endless sea of grass. Every so often, he or his Algarvian comrades would flush a bird from cover. They'd raise their sticks to their shoulders and blaze...

Praise for Darkness Descending

“Tutledove is almost certainly unique in reconceiving World Ward II in magical fantasy terms and on an immense scale--so far, completely successfully.” —Booklist (starred review) -
