Helm of Shadows is a work of fantasy fiction penned by author P. G. Badzey and forms the third novel of The Grey Riders series. Following the tale on from Whitehorse Peak and Eye of Truth, we now find the Grey Riders moving on towards the east after clearing Buck Bydency’s name. As they seek guidance on the prophecy which threatens an ultimate war between Light and Dark in the future, Dar Cabot and his friends sense the evil which follows them and lurks at every turn. The titular Helm of Shadows is a key piece in the puzzle, and they must find it before the wicked Margoth does - they must stop her plans for ultimate conquest.

Author P. G. Badzey returns with an even bigger and better addition to the Grey Riders series, this time expanding the world yet further to unveil more dark and dangerous fantasy delights. The character of Dar Cabot has grown considerably over the span of the novels, now a true leader and wrought by the fire of the trials he’s gone through so far. There’s something Western-esque in his fantasy troupe of riders, searching for good old-fashioned justice and sticking together despite the magical challenges of the forest and far-flung locations they find. Badzey’s descriptions are lifelike, often terrifying when the darkness comes calling, but always well drawn and well played out. Overall, Helm of Shadows is an excellent addition that once again lifts the series to new heights: a highly recommended read for fantasy fans everywhere.
