Book 2: The Broken Lands
Kostan reigns over an Empire in chaos. Savra pleads with Stormshard for forgiveness–and her life.
Meanwhile, rumors abound. At the far edges of the Empire, Prov villages and Atal encampments are being wiped out by mysterious and savage forces. Fleeing the Wildsends, Free Tribesmen speak of threats that drive them across the border and into Atal.
The seal between worlds is weakening. Darkness spills from the cracks. And the only two people who can stop it are mired in conflicts spawned by their choices.
