Previously 'Old Souls' and Undergoing Major Rewriting ----- 'They were an odd group. A group of jagged hearts, with talons and bared fangs and roses in their hair. They were the bastards, the thieves, the monsters with blood on their hands and stars in their eyes. And the gods would bow to them before the day was through.' Brenner Warde is a bastard, a boy on the cusp of two worlds. He knows what he is, and what he'll never be, and has made his peace with it. But when there are rumours of an imminent war, Bren is thrust into the dark, ornate court of Dratia. Every court has ears that hear and lips that whisper, and if there's one thing that the whispers have taught him, it's that bastards are never heroes. ----- Amazing cover done by @MayTijssen!!
