What the Critics Say

“Terrific world-building … awesome female player.” (The Crooked Crow)

“A promising opener with villains and conspiracies aplenty.” (Fantasy Book Review

"The killing of Hiril Altaïr by legendary assassin Ciris Sarn results in his being hunted by the victim's widow. At the heart of the matter are four books whose pages contain knowledge of a conspiracy that may have world-shattering consequences. Gunn's latest novel introduces a fascinating antihero and a strong-willed heroine against a backdrop that blends Arabian mythology and culture with the timeliness of Middle Eastern political complexities. Strong storytelling and vivid characters make this a good choice for most fantasy adventure readers." (Library Journal)
