One woman fights for peace in a world caught up in never-ending war in this thrilling fantasy adventure from the author of Scribes and Schisms. Three years have passed since the devastation of Golyna. Anna, once the maker of immortals, continues to fight the evil she unwillingly created through her rune-carving magic. Secreted away in an isolated mountain monastery, she works as a teacher to young scribes, guiding them toward runes that foster peace rather than endless war. So when the tracker who murdered her brother comes to Anna's redoubt, begging for his eternal runes to be undone, Anna agrees to grant his wish on one condition—he must aid her in rooting out the remnants of Volna, a genocidal regime bent on destruction. In this brave new world where old foes can become allies, so too can former friends sour into deadly enemies. With the tracker's help, Anna is propelled into a confrontation with Ramyi, her former apprentice. Grown bitter and disillusioned, Ramyi now wants to lay waste to the world—but not before she completes an apocalyptic ritual that could have dire consequences for all of existence. To stop Ramyi from unleashing chaos, and restore peace to a broken world, Anna must be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. "High literary fantasy . . . James Wolanyk's work should find its place among not only lovers of dark fantasy, but also those that love challenging and beautiful prose and are looking for something that digs deeper in to the wonder of the human spirit." —Fantasy Book Review on Scribes
