Book Two of the Lord Jester's Legacy.
Mark Seaton thinks he has nothing left to lose. But the closer he gets to his enemies, the more he realizes that he may be forced to sacrifice things far more precious than what remains of his life. A dying man's heart can still be broken, and even a bound jester can lose his soul if he commits a crime so heinous that his lord will never forgive him.
A massive fleet opens fire on Perida Bay, and an ambush lies in wait as Lark races home by starlight. His lover, Verai, gathers up their daughter and rushes to meet Lark in the safety of the court's protective custody cells.
Lark never arrives.
In this followup series to The Lord Jester's Legacy, Lark will face his greatest enemy: the past.
For the love of his nation, he will go to war.
For the love of a man, he will defy death.
For the love of freedom, he will destroy the connection between hell and earth, and sacrifice all he has ever known.
