The thrilling sequel to GODBLIND, the biggest fantasy debut of 2017.
The Wolves lie dead beside Rilpor’s soldiers, slaughtered at the hands of the Mireces and their fanatical army.
The veil that once kept the Red Gods at bay has been left in tatters as the Dark Lady’s plans for the world come to fruition. Where the gods walk, blood is spilled on the earth.
All that stands between the Mireces army and complete control of the Kingdom of Rilpor are the walls of its capital, Rilporin, and those besieged inside.
But hope might yet bloom in the unlikeliest of places: in the heart of a former slave, in the mind of a soldier with the eyes of a fox, and in the hands of a general destined to be king.

Stephens delivers a worthy second installment (following Godblind) of her rich and immersive grimdark trilogy, narrowing the geographic scope of the story in order to focus on her enthralling cast of characters and provide emotional depth to this battle-heavy tale. The siege on the city of Rilporin has achieved a grim stasis, with armies on either side of a once impenetrable defensive wall. Inside the city, Cdr. Durdil Koridam has reluctantly taken on the mantle of leadership, desperately awaiting promised reinforcements. Outside, King Corvus and Prince Rivil's armies work in an uneasy alliance to bring Rilporin to its knees. Meanwhile, the Godblind Dom Templeson forces himself to serve the Dark Lady, an evil goddess who has taken over his mind. And far away, Crys Tailorson continues to grow into his destiny, discovering both the all-consuming love and the fearsome powers of which he is capable. Stephens expertly avoids a midseries slump with elegant, evocative prose, intense action, and plenty of emotional twists, providing a story that her fans will find irresistible.
