Publisher's Summary

A dark presence spans the four provinces of Sera. Amid the Northern War and Southern Plague, monstrous creatures rule the night. They hail from the shadows and ravage the land, fearing only the precious rays of dawn. These nightmares prey upon as well as taint that which lives. 

Ewan seeks one of the shadowy entities in the wilds of his native forest. But he stumbles upon a mysterious female warrior instead. She exhibits extraordinary powers and aids him in his revenge against the nightmare that claimed the life of his brother. 

Realizing there is little left of his previous life, Ewan travels onward with her after accepting the offer of an unknown order. Together, they face beings that defy reality and prey upon the mortal world. 

Though his companion fights against the darkness, she is openly rejected and feared by those around her. Ewan gradually learns of the terrible burden she carries and how the greatest evils can often lie within.

Poetic, fast moving adventure

John Payne is the voice of a poet masquerading as a sci-fi novelist. I enjoyed the adventure, the fantastical creatures, and the brilliant use of the English language in service of everything from the characters behavior to the architecture of villages and towns. Cassidy Ellenberger’s narration brought the story to life with her soft yet mysteriously engaging delivery. A delightful and engaging listen.

Holly sh!t this was amazing!

This book combines demonic beasts, strong female characters, and breath-taking environments. It is a whole new world and there is no place for cowardliness. One of the main characters intrigues you, the other one gets you cheering. They also have their flaws which makes them vulnerable and almost realistic. The fights are described so precisely that I felt like I was holding the bow, blocking the hits, and dodging the teeth and claws of the creatures. Speaking of creatures....they are possessed, tormented, and I would not want to encounter one in person.
The book definitely kept me on the edge and I cannot wait for more!

Fun listen!

Good work! Very imaginative book. Payne goes into minute detail to draw the reader in a world that is deeper than the one we know. I enjoyed the suspense and action and would recommend if you are a fantasy enthusiast.
