In the final installment of Grisha Verse, Alina Starkov and Mala, along with the few surviving grisha are once again captive. Instead of the Darkling, the priest is now their jailer with hundreds of believers surrounding them on all sides. Alina must grapple with the fact that she has not been able to use her power and summon light. Through a desperate attempt on the groups part, she is able to reawaken her power, take control back from the priest, resurface, find the third amplifier, and finally see the fall of the Darkling and the banishment of the void.
