SHORTLISTED FOR THE DAVID GEMMELL MORNINGSTAR AWARD.
The first in a new epic fantasy trilogy set in a world ravaged by magic, featuring a cast of assassins, knights, and ambitious noblemen.
Girton Club-foot has no family, a crippled leg, and is apprenticed to the best assassin in the land.
He's learning the art of taking lives, but his latest mission tasks him with a far more difficult challenge: to save a life. Someone is trying to kill the heir to the throne, and it is up to Girton to uncover the traitor and prevent the prince's murder—and his own.
It's a game of assassin versus assassin.
