The Gallows Saint (Book Two of The Shadow Wa...
The Shadow Watch has been undone. Most of the surviving Watchers lie in the dungeons of the White Citadel, their blood providing more and more power to the Chancellor. Many have joined him rather than suffer such a gruesome existence. And some find themselves forced to commit unspeakable acts against their will. The Gallows Girl is unaccounted for, but she is not forgotten. And Darien must soon choose where his loyalties truly lie.
Tori and Mischa trek to the Great White North with an Alyut shaman named Alyk, in hopes of joining a growing resistance of marginalized peoples. But Tori may not be the god they are wanting. Soon, she must face the choice between resistance and the lives of the Watchers.
Kale and Kirra are faced with the aftermath of Kale's betrayal. Kirra's encounter with the Chancellor has left her disabled, and Kale faces the choice of joining the Chancellor in hopes of healing her, or confronting their painful past and accepting the consequences.
As Old World monsters rise up in the North, the entire New World prepares for a war of magic. Unlikely alliances are set in place, new friendships are forged, new loves are kindled, but there can be no war without betrayal.
