From the widely acclaimed authors ofHavemercycomes this stunning new epic fantasy, set in the chaotic aftermath of a hundred years of war. Here, amidst the treacherous dance of diplomacy and betrayal lie the darkest secrets of all…and a peace more deadly than war itself. Led to victory by its magic-fueled Dragon Corps, Volstov has sent a delegation to its conquered neighbors to work out the long-awaited terms of peace. Among those sent are the decorated war hero General Alcibiades and the formerly exiled magician Caius Greylace. But even this mismatched pair can't help but notice that their defeated enemies aren't being very cooperative. The truth is even worse than they know. For the new emperor is harboring a secret even more treacherous--one that will take every trick in Alcibiades' and Caius' extensive arsenal to unveil. And once it is revealed, they may still be powerless to stop it. With their only ally, an exiled prince, now fleeing his brother's assassins, the countryside rife with treachery and terror, and Alcibiades and Caius all but prisoners, it will take the most powerful, most dangerous kind of magic to heal the rift between two strife-worn lands and unite two peoples against a common enemy…shadow magic. From the Hardcover edition.

Read the first book (Havemercy) for background details, but it's not necessary to enjoy this second book. Four more different first-person p.o.v's, with my new favourite character: Caius. His narration is enough to make you wonder if he's superbly observant, adorably funny, or madly insane.
