Finalist for the 2019 OZMA Fantasy Fiction awards, Chanticleer International Book Awards
Damien Flynn finds himself in the midst of growing turmoil that he foresaw but was not equipped to handle. Denied the quill for speaking his mind, he finds himself shackled to a path spiraling downward. A brush with death can do wonders to help one re-evaluate their priorities and their morals but it remains to be seen just how Damien will proceed with his newfound perspective on mortality.
Victoria Montgomery, a powerful revolutionary general, buoyed by her second with fractured morals, provides early and tangible victories but success brings attention they may not be ready for. Erudite and ruthless cunning stalks the would-be revolutionaries with pragmatism and patience. The threat of extinction looms over every step forward.
