Draken's queen is presumed dead. His adopted country is buckling under attack from religious fanatics, and he must try to protect both his country and family. Draken's daughter is the only thing that gets him through the long days, but when her life is threatened, he must make hard choices about whom he can trust and whom he can no longer protect.
The Gods themselves stalk Draken across the war-torn landscape, and his daughter somehow seems to be at the center of it all. Bitter from fighting an insurmountable war, feeling the life he's rebuilt crumble around him, the ghosts of past mistakes drive him to blindly chase revenge. But Draken is about to learn that in the pursuit of retribution, gods and wars have a way of catching up to a man.
In the thrilling conclusion to Dornbusch's Book of the Seven Eyes trilogy, one man must fight to keep the things he holds dear, and find peace and security at the end of a life of bloodshed.
