Hathum has left Azrel for dead. Seemingly a long way from recovery after his attack, Azrel suddenly gets a vision of Yarin, the true leader of the Gleo'gwyns. He is being held prisoner in a decrepit dungeon and being mercilessly tortured by a Shadow solider.
Azrel realizes in that fearful instant that the world would share Yarin's fate if Hathum and the Shadow Gods defeat her.
Enjoy this exclusive excerpt:
“Send out the next prisoner!”
All at once, a hush came over the crowd and an awkward, uncomfortable silence loomed. The cage door opened and I stepped out. I was offered a blade no bigger than a pocket knife as a weapon. I sneered at it and continued walking onto the sand without it.
Every single being in the crowd was on their feet trying to get a look at me. Some were moving down closer to the sand pit, pressing slightly against the boarded boundaries. A bunch stood on their seats; others got on the tips of their toes to see over taller shoulders. Bodies started leaning forward and crowding around the bottom of the bleachers. I saw a few people start to whisper and point to me, but the silence was still deafening.
So, Glugnus had spread the word about me being here. This whole land knew I was here and my regime had stayed hidden. My heart sank a little when I realized why—they didn’t fully trust me. They wouldn’t dare expose themselves until they knew their leader could lead and protect them. They didn’t know me.
I sighed as I reached the center of the sand and faced the tall gates. The air was hot and thick and I immediately began to sweat. The intense pressure of the crowd’s eyes on me didn’t help much either. While I waited, I felt a tingle at the back of my neck, as if familiar eyes were on me. I turned around and my heart plummeted to the souls of my feet.
