About the Book

The capital city of the Anirian Empire simmers with unrest. The emperor stands as the last scion of the imperial dynasty, but at sixteen, the boy is powerless against an oppressive regent who seeks to tighten his hold on the throne. As sides are drawn and conspiracies are set into motion, six individuals emerge to carve a foothold for their own ambitions...
