King's War by Jill Williamson

One battle is over, but the war has just begun. They escaped the Five Realms and have found a home, but peace is much harder to find. The aftermath of the Battle of Sarkar should have been a time to mourn those lost in the slaughter. The enemies of Armenia are many, however, and when one steps back to regroup, another surges forward in attack.
While the remnant must take responsibility for the evil they brought to Er'Rets, it would seem that something just as dark already existed in this new world. The growing struggle between Armenia and Barthel Rogedoth is but a pale reflection of a far more dangerous battle for the souls of humanity.
And so begins this awe-inspiring conclusion to Jill Williamson's Kinsman Chronicles. The Hadar family and their allies prepare to make one final stand in the name of Arman. There shall be war--in Er'Rets and in the Veil--to vanquish evil or be ruled by darkness.
