It’s awkward having friends and lovers wanted by the law. For Arthur MacInerny, the wielder, it’s starting to feel like his new normal. His former lover and summonling has been on the lam since being turned back into a flesh and blood succubus. His brother in revenge, Ahtsag Znuul, is still on the most wanted list of The Protectorate, the supernatural policing organization.
Unfortunately, bigger problems exist. The Dzemond, a collective of demon-like races, are sending advance teams for a full-scale invasion. Arthur can’t sit by and watch that happen, so he becomes part of a rogue team of outsiders as The Protectorate isn’t dealing with the issue.
Being part of that team lands Arthur on the wrong side of the law and on the run. But that’s not about to stop Arthur and his band of summonlings.
