Emerald Mage (Empire of the Lotus, Book Four) by Dorothy Dreyer
A foreboding prophecy. A lost empress. And a battle to determine the fate of the world.
In the arduous war against the dark god Kashmeru, the elite mages have managed to track down half of the magical daggers. But the enemy isn’t far behind.
Leading the shadow army, the dark mages have won battles of their own, and the Lotus empress is still under Kashmeru’s control. But mysteries are unraveling that could help the elite mages gain an advantage—if they can survive long enough to fulfill their legacies.
