Years ago, when violent purges plunged Dún Aulin into chaos, Warden Esben Berengar was sent to restore order by any means necessary. He did so with brutal efficiency.
All is not forgiven.
When the hunt for a mysterious enemy leads Berengar back to Dún Aulin, an old friend’s request thrusts him headfirst into treachery and danger. The Ceremony of the Cursed Blade, when the sword used by the Lord of Shadows in his conquest of Fál will be on display, is at hand, and it’s up to Berengar to keep the blade from falling into the wrong hands.
To do that he’ll have to survive vengeful goblins, bloodthirsty monster hunters, Leinster’s powerful Thieves Guild, and worse.
