"The Light of Nighttime" is a fourth and the last volume of "The Vault of Equilibrium" cycle.

Tetralogy consists of: "Love and Rule", "You Win", "The Combat Vehicle of Love", "The Light of Nighttime".


An amateur warlock is much more dangerous then an experienced wizard Ц the madness of the world is on his side. Because of the clumsy warlock Laraf, the new head of The Vault of Equilibrium, a flourishing city has perished in fire and Falm peninsula where barons-werewolves, inhabiting unassailable castles, fight and make peace, has turned into a vast battlefield. Egin, the former officer of The Vault of Equilibrium, cannot pass by this war between people and werewolves. Love and duty draw him into the very heart of the battle.

The reader is introduced to the secrets of applied magic and court backstairs.
