A world where magic is giving way to the forces of science and electricity, except something is attempting to bring back the old powers. In order to do this, the secret of Unbinding must be pried from the deep memories of powerful men-- with fatal results.
This chronicle revolves around a bitter ex-assassin who is unwillingly drawn into the crisis and the attempt to stop the re-awakening.
What's NICE about this story is that it has a deep, and intricate world, not of Magic, but of Men, Politics and Ambition. This is NOT a Coming of Age tale. The story is multi-layered with emotions and motives that are less heraldric and more Murder/Detective.
And woven throughout this well crafted political thriller are the deft touches of an eldritch world that Used to be, before Men gained ascendancy. ( )
