That which survives the initial assault may yet die from the infection left behind.
In the destroyed country of Lithia, the former Gildonese leader of the Lowlands, King Fice, has violently assumed the throne, filling the void left by the Tek destruction of the country. His unnatural powers of sway have become more potent and his influence is far-reaching.
The Tek invasion has also left a void within the kingdom of Epertase. The war has tested the once-great people and, with the venomous words of men Queen Alina considers friends, Epertase descends into revolution. Alina barely escapes with her life.
Once again, the kingdom needs a savior.
And once again Rasi will be forced to unleash the darker part of himself in order to save the woman he loves.
All is not what it seems. Victory may still mean defeat. The war for Epertase has only begun.
