Matt and Rose are now full-fledged members of the guard, yet their futures have never been bleaker.
Despite Titan’s resurrection spell, Antai is comatose with no signs of waking. The healers have tried everything, and Rose is beginning to lose hope. She needs someone to trust, but the king is more suspicious than ever.
Matt is also growing desperate. His mom is on the brink of death, and he hasn’t even begun to learn how to heal her. He must find a teacher fast or risk losing the only family he has left. Meanwhile, the Holy One is closer than ever. The laborers speak of his arrival, and they have the evidence to prove it. A string of murders erupts throughout the city, permeating even the palace walls. Nowhere is safe, and it’s only a matter of time before the Holy One unleashes his full power.
