After passing through the portal to another realm… …Ted Finley must put his trust in unlikely allies to survive. The Realm of Souls is a war zone, and Ted and Natalie are behind enemy lines. Badly injured and powerless, the two strangers to a new world must rely on a mysterious woman and her village to live to see another day. Erica LaPlante is down to her second-to-last option. Only a coordinated effort from Jennifer, Dhiraj, Travis and the rest of the gang will keep Erica from her last resort: death and regeneration. But fugitives at large can't hide forever, and some of them won't live long enough to clear their names. The Light, the Dark and the Ugly is the fourth novel in a YA Sci-Fi Fantasy series that features exhilarating combat, deadly foes, sharp humor, and a little romance. Author Bryan Cohen's Ted Saves the World series breaks darker ground in a chilling, action-packed fourth installment.
