Book four in the Destiny and Darkness series

Author: Karen Frost


How can one girl possibly save the world?


In this exciting fourth and final book in the Destiny and Darkness series, Aeryn, a young dead war mage indentured to Death, is the only one standing in the way of looming disaster.

Her world is crumbling. Iliyria is on the brink of falling. The Northmen have invaded. Peace with the Southlands has failed. And worst of all, the Darkness is flooding into the human and divine realms, intent on destroying both.

Drawing friends and new allies around her, Aeryn sets out to fight evil, but can she stop the forces of the Dark before her short time allowed in the land of the living runs out?

The race is on, and now Aeryn isn’t just facing impossible odds, but a terrible fear: What if the price she must pay is the one thing she doesn’t want to give?


Karen Frost brings together all the incredible elements for an exhilarating ending to her epic young adult fantasy adventure series.

    What a wild journey this final book is. Not only has Aeryn to face the job to safe the world and her friends, she also has more monsters to fight than ever. Even the description of them made me shiver. Aeryn finds through these fights more friends and even gets the chance to stay with Lise. A powerful fourth book in the series. Great job Karen Frost

    Death’s Champion by Karen Frost is the fourth and final novel in the ‘Destiny and Darkness’ series. I’ve read all four books now. Before this novel, I always considered the first story to be the best of the series. In my opinion though, Death’s Champion is equal to Daughter of Fire: Conspiracy of the Dark.

    The fourth book takes us back to the characters we met and connected with in the first novel. This tale is told in First Person POV through the eyes of Aeryn, a young war mage we met in the first book. Aeryn is dead, but has been sent back to Iliyria to save both the human world as well as the Divine Realm from the Darkness that is invading both places. It is a Herculean task, and Aeryn is given only a few days to accomplish this. It will take all her effort plus the help of old and new friends to complete this quest, and even with all that help, Aeryn could fail, which would mean destruction and annihilation for everyone.

    This story is filled with nonstop action and terrifying adventures from the beginning to the end. It was great seeing Aeryn’s friends Kjelborn, Cayleth, Pavo, and Kaylara, all from book one. There are also several new friends, some of them demigods, and of course there is Lyse, Aeryn’s one true love. Ms. Frost has done an amazing job with all of these very memorable characters. The bad guys are equally unforgettable. Some of the shadows and monsters invading the realms are simply horrific. The author definitely has a vivid imagination, which of course is needed for a dark fantasy like this one.

    This story is filled to the brim with excitement, adventure, fear, darkness, friendship, selflessness, and love. It is a great young adult book for dark fantasy lovers of all ages. It also has a very satisfying ending. (And if the author ever decides to publish short stories in this ‘universe’, I would eagerly gobble those up!) I will warn you that this is not a standalone novel. To understand everything that is going on you need to read the series in order. I enjoyed reading all four books, and if you enjoy dark fantasy novels, then read this series.

    I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.

    Death’s Champion feels like a return to the first book that I fell in love with. Aeryn is again the main character, and the pressure she faces in this book feels so insurmountable! There is evil, Darkness and its minions. Death, who is not as frightening as I’d imagined, demi-Gods, new friends and old, loyalty, courage, desperation and honour.

    This is the chronicle of an ongoing adventure, a battle for Aeryn’s world that has been raging for more generations than I could keep track of. It was a sweeping epic, engaging, gripping and kept me awake LONG past when I should have shut the light out. But I HAD TO know how it ended!
    And now, I’m going to go back and re-read the series from the beginning.

    If you enjoy epic fantasy with well-written characters, magic, Gods and wizards with varying degrees of morals with a healthy dash of nail-biting danger…this is the series for you!
