A land far to the north, shadowed in mysticism. A place spoken about only in whispers, a place cursed.
Yet it is a place Kellen finds he has to go, despite his fears, as Black Guard invade his homeland. He is captured by the rebels and unwittingly joins their cause to save the Throne and a beloved princess. His path seems simple until he meets Sasheer, a man hauntingly familiar, handsome, but more dangerous than all the dark whispers combined. Plagued by nightmares, he must decide what is real and what is imagined before the past kills them all.
