As the relentless war draws to a close, Oulyia’s fate hangs in the balance. With one final chance to repel the Covenant and save their land from the invading hordes, Oulyia rallies its last remaining army. But what if they fail? The weight of uncertainty looms heavy as their ultimate destiny teeters on the brink.

Pesan understands the slim odds and the painful reality that he was denied the chance to join the fight, unlike his brother. Yet, regardless of the war’s outcome, he knows he cannot remain with a family that neglects him and life itself. As the war for Oulyia nears its conclusion, Pesan’s own journey is about to unfold, with its own trials and tribulations.

In the gripping narrative of At Night, the Lanterns Cry, the ceaseless escalation of conflict unveils the profound impact of rulers’ pursuits on nations and their people. Allegiances are tested, friendships strained, and ideologies challenged as the characters navigate a world pushed to its limits. Prepare for an enthralling tale where the stakes are high, and the consequences of personal ambitions reverberate through the lives of nations.

Born and raised in Denmark, Gustav Jacobsen started writing at an early age, eager to create new worlds wherein stories emerged and characters lived. However, one thing was different, as these vivid worlds were not vivid in the same sense to him. Having aphantasia—the inability to conjure images in your head (referred to as “mind-blindness”)—meant that the words creating imagery for readers was an experience he could not know for himself. This became a source of motivation as the notion that his writing could create imagery and ‘mental movies’ for a reader, which only enticed him further. With this, he endeavoured to create stories that would give the reader as much imagery and world-building.
