Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller!
This beautiful new fantasy series from Victoria Aveyard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Red Queen series, starts where hope has been lost and asks: Who will take up the sword when the heroes have fallen?
In Allward, a mysterious darkness is increasing.
Even Corayne an-Amarat, who lives in a small town on the coast, can sense it.
She soon learns the truth: she is the last of an ancient lineage—and the world’s last chance for survival. She won’t be alone, though. Even as the sun sets, she is joined by a group of unlikely allies:
-A squire who must choose between his home and his honor.
-An immortal seeking retribution for a broken vow.
-Exiled and bloodthirsty killer.
-An unsettling foresight is hidden in the riddles of an ancient sorceress.
-A forger with a dark background.
-A bounty hunter with an unfinished business.
Together, they face an unstoppable threat ready to burn all lands to the ground, as well as an army unlike anything the realm has ever seen.
