Having finally secured the four components of Annata’s ancient device, ten Kelanni, together with the enigmatic Chandara Boxx, set sail for the Island of Helice in order to neutralize the human weapon designed to eradicate the planet’s indigenous life and to give them control over lodestone—the most powerful substance in the universe.
After fending off an attack from an immense sea creature, the party is attacked by human flying machines. Shann and Rael, two of the four component carriers, are lost somewhere on the island, their fate unknown.
Will the Kelanni be able to reach the human weapon and disarm it? With time against them, they must battle to overcome internal conflicts and along the way uncover shocking new truths about themselves; about their enemies, the humans; and about the strange creature Boxx, whose ultimate purpose yet remains a mystery.

This is the third book in the Lodestone Series. I have previously read the other two books and I was worried that this book would not live up to my expectations. However The Crucible of the Dawn not only lived up to my expectations but exceeded them.
The description present throughout the book is flawless. The characters leap off the page and come alive in front of your eyes. The Plot kept me hooked throughout till the last page and in my opinion Mark Whiteway is just getting better and better with every book he writes.
I am looking forward to what Mark Whiteway writes next as I will be waiting, eager to get my hands on a copy.
