Publisher's Summary

Everyone has their secrets.

In Berinin, a new Chieftain Heir is born, but only his grandfather and a child from ArcNos know the truth of his birth. In Ferya, a denial of paternity fractures a family. In Ivaria, the plight of an orphan motivates his adoptive father to seek a child of his own blood.

These four children - MeiLom of ArcNos, Galo of Berinin, Eytea of Ferya, and Vielle of Ivaria - are part of a long-forgotten line of hominids called Hybrids.

Soon after, an ArcNosian soldier walks into the clutches and care of a shadow group with technology paling all of Ouristihra. Thus begins his rise to power, flanked by The Avatars of Fate as they preach the doctrine of The Epimetheus Trial.

With their hands firmly in the Northland powerhouse, The Avatars' focus is twofold. Topple the rest of the continent. And eradicate the Hybrids.

Derelicts, rebels, and refugees come together to overthrow the new power structure and drive out The Avatars. Nobody knows where they came from or what they're ultimately after. But one thing is certain.

"We need to operate under the assumption that nobody is coming to our rescue."

Epic Fantasy At Its Finest

A well-written high-fantasy novel. The author does a fantastic job with world and character building. I loved the narration of the audio book. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters to life and helped me immerse myself into the world the author created. For me, the narrator sounded a lot like Wil Wheaton, which is a positive. Fans of high-fantasy will love this book. Highly recommended.

A must read!

If you’re looking for a book that once you start you can’t stop, then this it is! The story is suspenseful, exciting, adventurous and mysterious from the start! Each character in the story has a purpose. You get lost in the story from the start. I could go on and on about this. This is hands down a must read/listen! I finished it quick because I couldn’t get enough of it and put it down! Just wow!

A great debut tale of power and intrigue

Setser and Eubanks are brilliant together. It's a story with many moving pieces, unexpected twists, and ever-shifting loyalties. Setser does a great job of spinning a story that'll keep you guessing as you fall further and further down the rabbit hole. Eubanks brings Setser's world and characters to life in perfect form. The conversations feel real, the relationships authentic, and the drama riviting thanks to his masterful narration and storytelling ability. If you're looking for a unique blend of fantasy and sci-fi, magic and science, historical and future tech... Do yourself a favor and check this out. You won't regret it. Really looking forward to what's next!
