A haunted mage. A weapon lost. Sometimes, the dead return…
To save a life, Zola must find an anchor to transfer a blood knot of untold power, and she knows exactly who to turn to. An old ally, Ward, is gifted in the ancient arts and may hold the key to Vesik’s salvation.
With his team by his side, Ward embarks on a quest through the outskirts of The Golden City, which is rife with Unseelie Fae and irontouched alike. Their only hope is a dangerous meeting with a highly trained cadre—who balance their loyalties on a knife’s edge.
As they embark on their path of knowledge and terror, tables take a jarring turn when a long lost apprentice, believed to be claimed by the darkness, makes a ghoulish return. The time for peace is near the end, and Ward must trust in those who rarely trust themselves in order to fulfill his mission.
“Oh my, the story seems to be getting more intense with every new character being expanded. Ward is cool and so powerful with his runes and whits. This series keeps making me want more. So More Please” – Peter
“Getting a look into the pasts of so many of the Vesik crew is awesome! The loyality, love and courage is truly amazing! There is a lot of heartbreak too, but such is the nature of war, supernatural or not. Eric has us all tied up in the past, present and futures of our heroes and I sure hope Team Vesik emerge victorious!” – Wendy S
“I am constantly amazed at the storytelling by this author. He’s quite good at laying a foundation with great action and wonderful characters. In this one we find out more about what happened in the past which has ramifications on the present. I am happy (get it, happy? LOL!) to have found out more about Ward, Happy, and the Old Man. I think there are some surprises coming and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next. This is a must-read novella, and they are all a wonderful way to pass the time. Recommend!” – PenKay, VINE VOICE
