The road to mayhem, the road to madness, the road to manhood…
The boy knew it was wrong to kill. He believed in human kindness–until he saw unimaginable acts of savagery spurred by the terror of a desperate mob.
When everything he knew failed him,
When all that he trusted betrayed him,
He chose to embrace the shadow.
Casting aside friends, family, and honor, he walks the assassins’ road–away from the light–into deceit and denial.
Sometimes killing is justified…
A shadow-man does not ask “why.”
From the creator of the beloved Elfhunter trilogy comes the third in the Alterra Histories series–a story of ravaged lands, hard choices, and the courage to confront your own destiny.
Shadow-warrior, Shadow-life, Shadow-man.
