Pure evil rises once again in Albia…


Three years have passed since Baron Reen’s trial. A

terrible accident on the island of his exile has transformed him into a

nightmarish scarecrow creature with dark, mysterious powers. Staging his own

suicide, Reen breaks free of his prison and, with the help of the former queen

Sofira, embarks on a ruthless quest for vengeance against his worst enemy, the

woman responsible for the overthrow of his schemes and his own ruination:

Brynne Sullyan.


Sullyan is tasked with investigating Reen’s suicide.

The missing body and a series of disasters in Port Loxton—a vicious murder, a

brutal ambush, and a devastating fire—raise suspicions in her mind. She probes

deeper, determined to uncover the truth, unsuspecting of the evil that’s about to

be unleashed…

“Daughter, forgive me, but I must ask you

again; are you sure, are you completely sure this is what you

want? You haven’t seen him yet, you haven’t spoken with him. I have to tell

you, he is not the man you remember, no matter what his letters suggested.”

Lerric was sitting with Sofira on the bed in

her luxuriously appointed chamber, autumn sunlight streaming through the

window. Its warmth helped alleviate the horror he still felt after his earlier

meeting with the creature Sofira had begged him to save. The king held fast to

his daughter’s hands, mainly to disguise the tremble of his own, but also to

convey his intense unease. He looked earnestly into her hard gray eyes and

willed her to hear his concern. Despite his fear, he was loath to reveal

precisely what had taken roost in that fetid cell far beneath the palace


Sofira stared back at him, hearing his care

for her, seeing his distress. But it seemed she could not understand his

concern, for her brittle eyes glazed with tears. “Don’t you want me to have

back what was taken from me, Father?” Her colorless face was animated with

hurt. “You know how unhappy I’ve been since I was forced to return here. You

know how I ache for my children.”

Lerric nodded. “I know it’s been hard for

you. At least at the castle Elias allowed you access to them—”

“Access?” Sofira snarled. “What use is access to

me? Never allowed to be alone with them, never to take them out of my prison,

never to walk in the park with them? He doled out time with them as if giving

tidbits to a dog, and kept me kenneled like one, too. And I a Queen! How could

you condone that?”


Lerric thought better of reminding his

daughter she had ceased to be a queen when Elias dissolved their marriage. And

in light of what she had done—misled by Reen or not, she couldn’t pretend

ignorance of the risks she had run—Lerric considered her fortunate not to have

suffered the death penalty. Not that he could tell her that, either.
