The age of darkness approaches.
Who will stand between the world and destruction?
“A can’t miss debut from an exciting new talent.” —Kiersten White, New York Times–bestselling author of Slayer
“I dare you not to fall madly in love with these characters.” —Laura Sebastian, New York Times bestselling author of Ash Princess
“A sweeping, ambitious fantasy.” —Julie C. Dao, author of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns
With chaos on the horizon, five souls are set on a collision course:
A prince exiled from his kingdom; a ruthless killer known as the Pale Hand; a once-faithful leader torn between his duty and his heart; a reckless gambler with the power to find anything or anyone; and a dying girl on the verge of giving up.
One of them—or all of them—could break the world. Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Children of Blood and Bone, and An Ember in the Ashes.
