Some believe the Ambhan Empire is cursed. But Arwa doesn’t simply believe it—she knows it’s true.
Arwa is the sole survivor of the infamous, unnatural massacre at Darez Fort—saved only by the strangeness of her blood, which she had been taught all her life to suppress. She makes common cause with a disgraced, illegitimate prince who has turned to forbidden occult arts to find a cure to the darkness hanging over the Empire. Using the power in Arwa’s blood, they seek answers in the realm of ash: where mortals can find the ghostly echoes of their ancestors’ dreams. But the Emperor’s health is failing, and a terrible war of succession hovers on the horizon—not just for the throne, but for the magic underpinning the Empire itself.
