The Sunduster Cycle - Book One: Rise of the Blackened Hand
by Ted Geoghegan
Once a noble warrior, Pa’set Vaanaton now spends his days wallowing in spirits and thievery. The glory days of his youth as a battle-forged Mahar - the most coveted of all titles on Phenos - are no more than a fleeting memory.
A memory, that is, until tonight - when hellfire burns away his reality, and a planet's life will hinge on the actions of this world-weary warrior and his companions.
