The Ice Eaters were thought to exist only legend and stories. But they are real and hiding from Yod in the caverns below their town. As a sworn duty, they protect the goddess and will thwart any effort to rise her from her tomb, killing any who try to disturb her. Shilly, Sal and everyone else trying to contain Yod must find a way to raise the Goddess from her tomb, despite the protection of the Ice Eaters, and save the world.
The Devoured Earth by Sean Williams is a satisfying conclusion to The Books of the Cataclysm. While this volume didn't have the same fantastical feel as the books, all the story lines wrap up well and I especially enjoyed seeing Shilly's tale come to a close.
I think this is the weakest of the four books, but is still a great read. The Books of the Cataclysm have become one of my favorites and I highly recommend the entire series.
