Demons, rebels, assassins, swords and sorcery…It seems that Hollowick is beset.
As young King Davon comes of age, he finds that his allies are few. The thimmaru, rune-marked undead rebels sworn to the Dead God, are massing at the gates of Hollowick. Within its walls lurks a far greater threat, one that cannot be slain by swords: a murderous felgrim, incorporeal demon of the abyss. He must turn to Tonsward, the assassin tower, in a last-ditch attempt to stop civil war.
Enter Marla Black. Ambitious, capable, and arrogant to a fault, Marla is the tower’s star apprentice. Her job is simple: find the thimmaru camp, befriend the nephew of the leader, and bring him back for questioning. An easy step to becoming King’s Dagger, she thinks.
What she doesn’t expect is to like Eaton Poole and, worse, to find that the roots of his rebellion go far deeper than she ever expected…
