<_u53a_p>Geder Palliako's star is rising. He is a hero of Antea, protector to the crown prince, and darling of the court. But storms from his past are gathering, and with them, a war that will change everything.<_u53a_p>

Cithrin bel Sarcour founded a powerful bank on stolen wealth, forged papers, and ready blades. Now every move she makes is observed, recorded, and controlled. Unless Cithrin can free herself from her gilded cage, the life she made will be for naught; war may provide just the opportunity she needs.<_u53a_p>

An apostate priest sees the hidden hand behind all: a long-buried secret of the dragon empire threatens everything humanity has built. An age of madness and death approaches, with only a few doomed heroes to stand in its way.<_u53a_p>

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bleh I really enjoy the first one ( Dagger and the coin ) but this one just dragged. First book to take me more than a month to read since 2009

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book Great characters and compelling dialog. My only complaint is that the plot seems a bit thin and that he may be trying to mask that fact with fluff. It is a very well written book and keeps you going from start to finish.
