The Risharri Empire 4
Empress Cassaya is in hiding, her loyal circle reduced to a mere handful. Valencia Salastrelle sits on the Sapphire Throne, commanding the Army of the Associated Sovereignties.
But Aleysa and Liam Colley have struck a deep blow to Salastrelle: they have discovered her greatest secret, and freed her half-Crommenach son from captivity. With his magic, they might just be able to spare the shape-shifters from annihilation.
First, they must race to stay ahead of Salastrelle, and stay alive themselves.
