For one apprentice assassin, the clock is ticking... Pyrre Lakatur doesn't like the description skullsworn. It doesn't capture the beauty of her devotion to Ananshael, God of Death. And she's not an assassin, but a priestess. Or she will be, if she can pass her final trial. The problem isn't killing, as Pyrre has spent her life training for this. The problem is love. To pass the trial, she will have fourteen days to kill seven people detailed in an ancient song, including one true love, 'who will not come again'. However, Pyrre has never been in love, time is short, and if she fails she'll be given to her god. Pyrre's not afraid to die, but she hates to fail. So a month before the trial begins, she returns to the violent city of her birth, where she once offered an abusive father to the god. Here Pyrre hopes to find love - and end it with the edge of her knife.

After more than a decade teaching history, religion, and philosophy, Brian decided to write epic fantasy. He now lives on a steep dirt road in the hills of southern Vermont, where he divides his time between fathering, writing, husbanding, splitting wood, skiing, and adventuring - not necessarily in that order.


A vividly imagined story of conspiracy and empire Col Buchanan on The Emperor's Blades Following in the footsteps of George R. R. Martin, Joe Abercrombie and the like ... Brutal, intriguing and continuing to head toward exciting events and places unknown Kirkus Reviews on The Providence of Fire A thrilling fantasy adventure that blends together politics, action and magic ... Each of this disparate storylines contribute to a much greater whole, and the end result is a wonderfully machined novel that simultaneously plays out a more immediate storyline and its place in a much larger story Io9 on The Last Mortal Bond
