“I am the Heir to the North.”
Malessar’s curse is broken, the wards around Caenthell destroyed. The Warlock lies, exhausted and gravely wounded, in the rubble of his own house. And while the dire spirits that have been trapped behind his wards for centuries are unleashed into the world once more, Cassia is confined to a cell, deep in Galliarca’s grand palace.
Yet Caenthell calls to her, and Cassia must answer. As Heir to the North, the throne and the power behind it belong to her. But the twisted hunger of Caenthell’s spirits appals her, and Cassia vows to do everything she can to defeat them.
Now, Cassia must convince both Galliarca and Hellea that they have to stand against the resurrected High King of Caenthell. She must raise an army from nothing, forge uncertain alliances with princes and dragons, and fight her way into the heart of the North. And, if she is lucky, someone may live to tell her tale.
