The shadows are coming…
Months after the tremors that shook the world, repercussions of battle still lie in Xayall’s broken streets. Among the debris stands Bayer, former bodyguard to Faria, Empress of the city state. His position redundant, and his injuries still healing, he struggles to find new purpose.
Unrest between nations is already stirring. A Councillor from Andarn has been murdered, and only a handful realise that sinister machinations are blackening the root of the whole continent. Questioning his duties, Bayer finds himself escorting Captain Alaris on a mission from which neither may return, although their failure may spark a brutal and catastrophic war.
As blades rise, threats both new and old emerge from the darkness and bare their teeth at the world.

– Mark J. Engels, author of Always Gray in Winter
Nice piece of work. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Such a rich, detailed world, a compelling cast of characters, and thrills aplenty.
– Mark Cantrell, author of Citizen Zero
An intriguing mystery filled sequel that will leave you unable to put this book down. Jackson’s expert skill, and most striking and memorable trait, is in creating such beautifully structured conversations and encounters between these friends that the compassion they feel for each other has a warmth that seems to radiate from the page. This is truly a beautiful story.
