Sunset Over Abendau
by Jo Zebedee
Kare promised he’d hold the Empire for ten years and no longer. A decade later, he’s no closer to freeing himself. Haunted by past events, in a role he hates, the temptation to walk away bites deep.
When the lost heritage of his father is revealed, a new path opens to him, one threatened when old enemies rise against those he loves. To safeguard them, Kare will have to fight for the Empire he despises and face the deadly secret hidden deep beneath Abendau’s desert.
