The wicked city of Xennidhum has fallen—and now Simon Wargallow believes his world is saved. But a new evil has risen to threaten the beleaguered land of mystery and miracle. For out of the wastes of ice comes dire news of a powerful sorcerer king who will unleash the forces of chaos on the unstable empire. And one man, the son Omara’s doomed lord, must shed his disguise and regain his rightful throne before humanity’s final cry.
Don’t miss the entire quartet: A Place Among the Fallen, Throne of Fools, The King of Light and Shadows, and The Gods in Anger.
