What if you held a secret that would turn the tide of war away from the enemy … and onto you?
When Kes is found stumbling through the desert on the verge of death, she's given a second chance at life, but at a cost: she must prove that the secret she holds is real. With a jaded war hero, an escaped slave, and a crack shot by her side, Kes must sneak back into the lands that nearly killed her before and face a god-like menace who has anticipated her return.
Win or lose, the foursome will be branded as traitors. Their home will fall to ash and ruins, and everyone they've ever known will perish. Their only hope rests on the word of a thief who has set out to rescue an enemy who deserves to die.
About the Author
Jackson Lear grew up around the world and has developed an accent that can sometimes be described as mostly Irish, a fair whack of English, and a hint of American. That's pretty handy for someone who lives in Australia. He considers 8am to be the middle of the night, has a habit of buying more books than he can ever read, and might have a go at being Batman if his writing career never really takes off.
