WINNER OF ‘BEST BOOK: FANTASY’ IN THE FALL 2016 PINNACLE BOOK ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS
Only a fool crosses a god, but Ellaeva and Lyram will do anything to get what they want.
Chosen at the age of five to be the Left Hand of Death, Ellaeva has nothing to call her own—except a desire to avenge her slaughtered parents—until she meets Lyram Aharris after the murder of his wife.
Lyram is third in line for the throne, and when his castle is unexpectedly besieged, he fears his prince means to remove him permanently. Ellaeva’s arrival brings hope, until she reveals she has not come for the siege, but instead she hunts the castle for a hidden necromancer dedicated to the dark god of decay.
Within their stone prison, Ellaeva and Lyram must fight to save themselves from political machinations and clashing gods. But as the siege lengthens, the greatest threat comes from an unexpected quarter.
