Description
The safe haven of the Noble Warriors has been demolished and the Nomana have disbanded. When a young boy preaching peace and joy mesmerizes all who come in contact with him, a large following grows quickly--one that soon includes Morning Star and the Wildman. Yet Seeker, who is obsessed with his increasingly perilous journey to kill the last savanter, finds his mission placing him at odds with this new leader. As loyalties and friendships and faith are tested, all three heroes must question: Who can be trusted? And what can be believed? Part adventure-fantasy, part love story, and part reflection on the themes of power and faith, "Noman "is a thrilling and thought-provoking novel--a beautiful wrap-up to a critically acclaimed series.
