If it was legal to kill, would you?
Suriax and Aleria are sister cities, separated by the Therion River. Both are founded on strict observance of the law, but they couldn't be more different.
King Veritan founded Suriax on the teachings of Venerith the Corruptor: a god devoid of morality. In Suriax there is no right or wrong; there is only legal or illegal. Kern was an assassin for the Flame Guard, a group of mercenaries dedicated to Venerith. He never questioned his life, until the day he learned the truth about his past.
Pursued by a queen willing to do anything to keep her throne, Kern faces an uncertain future - and a bargain that will change the people of Suriax forever.Genre: FICTION / Fantasy / General
