Synopsis

A young Kaunian girl is forced to remain hidden while her Forthwegian savior braves the rough, Algarvian-controlled streets to earn their keep. The scholars of Kuusamo are no closer to understanding the bloodless magic that may win the war-and time is short. Kuusamo has joined into an unsteady alliance with Lagoas and Unkerlant. No one kingdom trusts another, but they must unite, for it is only together that they can defeat the Algarvian threat.The war is no longer confined to soldiers and sorcerers. Common folk are joining together to fight from underneath their oppressors, whether they be Algarve or Unkerlant. What those farmer soldiers lack in skill, they make up for in dedication. A dedication that will carry them . . . through the darkness.

Third in Turtledove's alternate world/fantasy series (Darkness Descending, 2000, etc.) recasting WWII as a magical battle between Algarve, the lebensraum-seeking equivalent of Nazi Germany, and its numerous smaller opponents who desperately seek shaky alliances in the hope of stemming the tide.
