The final installment in the Night's Dominion trilogy, the acclaimed medieval high fantasy heist series from New York Times bestselling author, Ted Nafeih.
Working with her old crew—the Magus, the Acolyte, the Bard, the Asp, and now, Grael, the demi-god—Emerane, the thief known as The Night, devises a plot to steal back the money held by the richest in Umber, and invest it back in those who need it most. But Grael is imprisoned by the corrupt new Amaraddan guard and its power-hungry captain, and the plan won’t go off without him. And then there’s the matter of that captain, a man who will either rule Umber or destroy it, a man who’s willing to give everything to hold onto his own power—including his very soul. The fight for Umber begins now!
Ted Naifeh first appeared in the independent comics scene in 1999 as the artist for Gloomcookie, the goth romance comic he co-created with Serena Valentino for SLG Publishing. After a successful run, Ted decided to strike out on his own, writing and drawing Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things, a spooky children’s fantasy series about a grumpy little girl and her adventures with her Warlock uncle. Nominated for an Eisner Award for best limited series, Courtney Crumrin’s success paved the way for Polly and the Pirates, another children’s book, this time about a prim and proper girl kidnapped by pirates convinced she was the daughter of their long-lost queen. Over the next few years, Ted wrote four volumes of Courtney Crumrin, plus a spin off book about her uncle. He also co-created How Loathsome with Tristan Crane, and illustrated two volumes of the videogame tie-in comic Death Junior with screenwriter Gary Whitta. More recently, he illustrated The Good Neighbors, a three volume graphic novel series written by New York Times best-selling author Holly Black, published by Scholastic. In 2011, Ted wrote the sequel to Polly and the Pirates, and illustrated several Batman short stories for DC Comics. In 2012, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Courtney Crumrin, he wrote and illustrated the final two volumes of the series. Currently, you can find Ted everywhere: from the pages of Batman ‘66 to his newest original series for adults, Night’s Dominion. Ted lives in San Francisco, because he likes dreary weather.
