'A band of war-weary soldiers have uncovered a plot that may tear the very fabric of reality forever. To save their own lives and to prevent a long-banished race of monsters from unleashing an army of horrors upon the waking world, they must reach the very heart of Dal Quor. To stop the cataclysm in time, they must fight their way to... The Gates of Night.


The Gates of Night is the final novel in the Dreaming Dark Trilogy by Keith Baker, following the second book in the series, The Shattered Land. The main plot takes place immediately before and after the events at the end of The Shattered Land, starting on Lharvion 22 and ending on Barrakas 5 of the same year, 997 YK.
