Braylar is still poisoned by the memories of those slain by his
unholy flail Bloodsounder, and attempts to counter this sickness
have proven ineffectual. The Syldoonian Emperor, Cynead, has
solidified his power in unprecedented ways, and Braylar and company
are recalled to the capital to swear fealty. Braylar must decide if
he can trust his sister, Soffjian, with the secret that is killing
him. She has powerful memory magics that might be able to save him
from Bloodsounder's effects, but she has political allegiances that
are not his own. Arki and others in the company try to get Soffjian
and Braylar to trust one another, but politics in the capital prove
to be complicated and dangerous. Deposed emperor Thumarr plots to
remove the repressive Cynead, and Braylar and Soffjian are at the
heart of his plans. The distance between "favored shadow agent of
the emperor" and "exiled traitor" is unsurprisingly small. But it
is filled with blind twists and unexpected turns. Before the
journey is over, Arki will chronicle the true intentions of Emperor
Cynead and Soffjian. Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and
Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for
readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel,
hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark,
sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk,
alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult
and supernatural), and much more. While not every title we publish
becomes a New York Times bestseller, a national bestseller, or a
Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality
books from a diverse group of authors.
