Fallon has won the battle but is struggling to control a country that isn't sure it wants to be free.
Swane is nowhere to be found. He may not have an army but he has the ruthless Duchess Dina, who has helped him discover how to unlock the dark powers of Blood Magic. And his agents have also captured Prince Kemal. Swane might have lost the battle but the war is far from over.
An epic fantasy perfect for fans of George RR Martin, David Gemmell and Raymond E. Feist.
