When you must dwell in the citadel of your enemies, do you join them? Depart towards exile and death? Or raze their dark tower to the ground?
Gael tries to ignore the significance of his actions. Managing supplies for a warlord's arsenal, the cursed mage purposefully evades the fact that he's enabling the destruction of his former people. But when he discovers the precious metal needed to craft the weapons is being stolen from under his nose, he resolves to find the culprit at any cost.
Following the trail of clues with relentless will, Gael exposes a chain of heinous treacheries. When he unearths the roles his friends have played, he's no longer certain whose side he should be on. Especially when his master orders him to destroy an artifact that could save them all.
With his loyalty tested to breaking point—with thousands of lives at stake—will Gael discern and choose what is right, or will he forfeit this last chance at redemption?
The Tally Master is the engrossing first novel in the Gael & Keir epic fantasy series. If you like characters who seem to step right off the page, twisty plots, and vivid world-building, then you'll love J.M. Ney-Grimm's gripping tale.
