The Shadows are forgotten. These doomed warriors have stood against the empire’s enemies for nearly two decades, fighting like the demons they feel themselves becoming. Each has sold his soul. Each suffers a recurring madness, a blood frenzy not always confined to combat.

But they battle far from the heart of the empire, in a forgotten war. Nathanial struggles to find his place in this new world order that is unfolding in front of him. He shines at military school, but as an outsider, he struggles to prove his loyalty to his empire while still honoring his heritage.

Lilly, is torn from her life of privilege in the colony of Lo Irant and tossed into the bleak realities facing her people. Escaping slavery, she joins with a group of radical revolutionaries, but quickly learns that freedom comes at a great cost.

This complex wide-ranging story with multiple plot lines may remind readers of Game of Thronesor Dune but this is a sharply contemporary story, darkly etched and layered with meaning.

This contemporary story deals with current issues like racism, distant wars, and corrupt governments. It is darkly etched in blood and steel. Though it describes the Opree Empire, readers will recognize our earth, and our own times.

Here's what

Fans are saying

L. Anna's book is just the type of book I've been looking to read. It is imaginative, powerful and exciting and an example of sci-fi for those who may not read a lot of sci-fi.

Highly recommended for those who enjoy political sci-fi and stories of bravery, attempted redemption and revolution.

Great debut novel. Lenz's prose is sharp as a knife and just as deadly. The world she has created is a world of haves and have nots is is a blistering indictment of the world current geo political stage and on rope of that it is a darn fine yarn. I cannot wait for book two.
