What if you were imprisoned for all eternity?

In the aftermath of the Ritual of Night, everything has changed.

The wizard Relos Var and the powerful demon Xaltorath are both moving forward with their plans to free and control the King of Demons so they can take over the world.

Kihrin has his own ideas about how to achieve victory, but for the friends, enemies, and lovers who have been unwillingly gathered together to help him, the cost may prove far too dear.

Stopping their enemies from freeing Vol Karoth is looking less and less possible.

Because—thanks to Kihrin—they're now trapped in the same prison as the King of Demons himself.


The House of Always picked up right where The Memory of Souls left off and threw us straight back into the action. As with previous volumes, we constantly switched POV between the characters. This worked well in terms of telling the back story/bits we'd 'missed'; however, I felt it also had a few issues in that some characters were more interesting to me than others, so when we had a section of narration from one of the characters I was less engaged with, my attention did wander a little until one of my preferred characters took charge again. Nonetheless, despite these occasional dips, the overarching story continued to hold my interest and the book ended at an intriguing point which left me excited to see what will happen in the fifth (and I believe final) volume next year.

I received this book as a free review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
