Book Two Synopsis

Ashen Sky:



Times are far from ideal in the capital city of Erotos. The struggle for power blurs the lines of friend and foe. Between the Arcanum, the queen, the Ver’konus, and the threat of enemy agents hiding in plain sight, everyone is a pawn in somebody’s deadly game.
The military academy holds claim over Javic and Belford, but with all-out war looming on the horizon, and unpredictable fluctuations of the Power literally tearing the streets of Erotos apart beneath their feet, there is little time for either of them to focus on their mandated training.
Belford’s past becomes clear as his memories resurface, but the more he learns about who he is and where he came from, the less certain the future becomes. Can Belford stitch together the shards of his forgotten memories before his past inevitably catches up with him?
