But what’s it about? So glad you asked my friend. Here’s the spiel:
Delphine Venner is old, but she remembers everything.
She remembers the war, and terrifying creatures from another world. She remembers the gateway, and those she lost.
And in that other world, beast-filled and brutal, someone waits for her. Hagar, a centuries-old assassin, daily paying a terrible price for her unending youth, is planning one final death: that of her master, the Grand-Duc. A death that will cost her everything. A death which requires Delphine.
Voyaging into this violence and chaos, Delphine must remember who she really is and be ready to fight for love, her life, and the survival of both worlds. It’s been a lifetime since the war ended. She thought her fighting days were over. But now she knows.
War doesn’t end. It sleeps.
