A Shadow of Steel | BOOK 2 TSLC
~ THE RIGHT TO RULE ~
As winter approaches, Tormac embarks on a quest to find the Blade of Evermore and free the land from a war spanning centuries. But it's not easy to understand the words of a long-dead queen-especially while fleeing the might of the Empire, accompanied by someone who might just kill him.
Along with a young lord and a jester, Dana follows Philip into exile. While the prince recovers from his ordeals, it's Dana's lot to ensure the survival of their ragtag team. Yet even as they evade the law, they become embroiled in a plan to end the war-with Dana as the catalyst.
Princess Kari contends with enemies on all sides as she becomes a Queen with no real power. As she chafes under the restrictions placed upon her, she must make difficult decisions that could either kill her or damn her in the eyes of her deities.
Meanwhile, Emperor Fermat is poised for victory as his weapons reach completion. He is not immune, however-for while Fermat sits his throne of thorns, others are coming to tear him down. The Shadow Knights are rising, and far away, the Golden Land whispers for vengeance...
