Of Ash And Shadow (Shadows Of The Empire, #1...
In every nook and cranny of the Elsarani Empire, shadows thrive.
The darkness you glimpse in the corner of your eye? It follows you everywhere. From the shady streets of Keldenfort, to the dazzling Verdant Palace of the Diamond Metropolis, they hunt you.
Sitting her quiet office, the last thing Elethsanja Rendmhyr expects to see is a letter from an old flame that burned out much too quickly. It contains accounts of numerous, white-eyed shadow creatures that murder and destroy.
After an order from the emperor to eradicate these creatures completely, Elethsanja leaves the comforts of the capital to pursue these monsters, along with someone who may or may not want to kill her, a foreigner who may be a stowaway, and a stranger who looks chillingly familiar.
But just how far would they go to save an empire riddled with war and corruption?
