In a pursuit that has spanned continents, Iolanthe, Titus, and their friends have always managed to remain one step ahead of the forces of Atlantis. But now the Bane, the monstrous tyrant who bestrides the entire mage world, has issued his ultimatum: Titus must hand over Iolanthe, or watch as his entire realm is destroyed in a deadly rampage. Running out of time and options, Iolanthe and Titus must act decisively to deliver a final blow to the Bane, ending his reign of terror for good.

However, getting to the Bane means accomplishing the impossible—finding a way to infiltrate his crypt in the deepest recesses of the most ferociously guarded fortress in Atlantis. And everything is only made more difficult when new prophecies come to light, foretelling a doomed effort….

Iolanthe and Titus will put their love and their lives on the line. But will it be enough?

With The Immortal Heights, Sherry Thomas brings the acclaimed Elemental Trilogy to its breathtaking conclusion.

I’m not sure if I can properly describe how excited I am to read the final book in this trilogy. At each turn Thomas has displayed a wonderful complexity to her storytelling, and a real depth to this world that she has built. I love how it crosses over with “real” history and blends these two worlds seamlessly. And then there are the characters. I love them, especially since almost nobody has turned out to be exactly as they appeared. I’m thrilled that we’re finally going to get to see more of Atlantis and the Bane in this final story (but also terribly sad that it will be over.) Perhaps at some point in the future, Thomas will give us more stories set in these magical realms??? One can only hope!
