Description

The empire has fallen and another rises in its place in the action-packed continuation of Devin Madson's sweeping epic fantasy quartet.

Ambition and schemes have left the Kisian Empire in ashes. Empress Miko Ts'ai will have to move fast if she hopes to secure a foothold in its ruins. However, the line between enemies and allies may not be as clear-cut as they first appeared.

After failing to win back his Swords, former Captain Rah e'Torin finds shelter among the Levanti deserters. But his presence in the camp threatens to fracture the group, putting him on a collision course with their enigmatic leader.

Assassin Cassandra Marius knows Leo Villius's secret-one that could thwart his ambitions to conquer Kisia. But her time in Empress Hana's body is running out and each attempt they make to exploit Leo's weakness may be playing into his plans.

And, as Leo's control over the Levanti emperor grows, Dishiva is caught in his web. To successfully challenge him, she'll have to decide how many of her people are worth sacrificing in order to win.

Review quote

SPECTACULAR . . . I was hooked from page one and there is truly not enough time in the day to have read this one as quickly as I would have liked to. Great characters, twisty plots, cool fight scenes that are like a complicated song and dance, and an interesting world of different cultures clashing. The last quarter of this book was a ride. I cannot wait to see how this series ends. Devin Madson has created such a wonderful and evocative world -- SUPERSTARDRIFER Set in an Asian-inspired world with echoes of ancient China and the Mongol Empire, this is a tale that hits all the right spots. Imaginative world-building, a pace that builds perfectly to a heart-pounding finale and captivating, believable characters. There's a lot to love here. Highly recommended -- John Gwynne on WE RIDE THE STORM A complex tale of war, politics and lust for power -- GUARDIAN on WE RIDE THE STORM Madson has crafted a complex and immersive story that catapults the reader through a gripping series of adventures and doesn't let go until the final electrifying pages I loved this book so much it's almost ridiculous . . .

It's also beautiful and deep, with characters that jump off the page -- BOOKWORM BLUES on WE RIDE THE STORM A visceral, intriguing, intense and emotionally charged ride.
