“Spellbinding! Strong development of characters, fully integrated storylines with intriguing plot twists, and deep world building. Takes you on a journey you never want to leave!” – Michelle G., Amazon Review

“Like George RR Martin and Joe Abercrombie, Carlson writes in this genre for grown-ups, with flair and elegance. A complex world with characters that develop well, this story reveals as it builds!” - Daniel F., Amazon Reviewer

A nation's most elite warriors vanished overnight. A throne in jeopardy on the heels of murder. War devouring the survivors, fanned to fury by a shadowy cabal born of ancient magic. And the five friends who can stop it, banished to the corners of the continent as traitors. Welcome to a land where dreams die and men do what they must.

This dark and gritty sword and sorcery series from award winning author Jean Lowe Carlson explores a complex world of treachery, passion, sex, and magic. Readers who enjoy Game of Thrones, Outlander, the Kingkiller Chronicles, or the Wheel of Time will love this fantastic adventure.

    I feel like you can find a bit of yourself in each and every character in this book, that’s what makes it hard to put down.

    Jean Carlson has done a bang up job with this (soon to be) trilogy. Unable to wait for vol 3. Hurry Jean, hurry. Had me captured from chapter one.

    I love this series! The characters are interesting and vibrant. The locations either make you NEVER want to visit or rush right there. The story twists and turns at every possible time, and keeps you wanting more. More chapters, stories, books, characters, everything. You name it and I want more.
