The tides of war have shifted. To win, they’ll need new allies.
Agent Raynt, one of the world’s most powerful essencers, returns home after failing to prevent a war against Sorceress Jocina or find his missing friends. There’s a small chance the war can be contained, but only if the politically entrenched Slaver Coalition is completely dismantled. Working alongside a company of elite knights, Raynt enlist another essencer in their cause: an outspoken abolitionist who could help the world find peace.
Together, Raynt and his new allies take on the Coalition while political heads of state descend on the kingdom’s capital in a final effort to negotiate peace—but other forces have emerged seeking to capitalize on the world’s disorder. They’ll stop at nothing, including murder, to achieve their own agenda.
On the seas, Raynt’s long-lost friends, A’banna and Bedel, have found no safe harbor. Sorceress Jocina’s forces dog their dwindling fleet of ships—assaulted by zealous assassins trained to kill essencers and by the monstrous sea creatures at Jocina’s call.
Can this shattered family make amends and turn the tide of war? Or will their own inability to face the past cripple the chance for Aelathia’s future?
