A father murdered.
A killer in the guise of a friend.
And the choice ... that led him into darkness.
An exile of the undercity of Brennus, Greth wanted only one thing: to be left alone to adventure. Yet when news reaches him of his father's murder, he's forced to return home.
There, and beneath the white and flickering lights and cavernous walls of Brennus, he is offered one chance to regain his standing as a subject of Brennus' king. The choice, on the surface, is simple enough: avenge his father ... kill a prisoner. But Greth soon learns that the prisoner is none other than Gale Brederick, a man whose decency once showed Greth another way for his two peoples.
...A way, perhaps, to put an end to a hundred years of war.
Does Greth, then, execute his childhood friend? Or should he leave his father's apparent murderer to rot in a gray cell beneath the earth?
All is not as it seems ...
