The first in a thrilling line of novels set in Eberron, a fantasy world ravaged by endless war and full of magic, danger, and adventure
Hardened by the Last War, four soldiers have come to Sharn—fabled City of Towers, capital of adventure, home to the best and worst that Eberron has to offer. After a lifetime of fighting, war is all they know. Kingdoms lie shattered, armies are broken, and an entire country has been laid to waste. Now, in a time of uneasy peace, they must struggle to survive.
But then people start turning up dead.
The battle-weary heroes—Daine, Jode, Lei, and Pierce—soon find themselves caught in a plot that will take them from the highest reaches of power to the most sordid depths of the city of wonder, shadow, and adventure.
